1. Send invitations
Be sure to send out invitations to your guests well in advance of the party so that they have time to RSVP. You can create your own invitations or order them online.
2. Set up the venue
If you're hosting the party at your home, be sure to clear out enough space for your guests to spread out. If you're renting a space, make sure to arrive early to set up and decorate.
3. Order food and drinks
If you're serving food at the party, be sure to order it in advance so that it will be ready when your guests arrive. You can choose from a variety of foods, from pizza to barbecue to Mexican. And don't forget the drinks! Be sure to have a variety of beverages available, from sodas to wine and beer.
4. Decorate the venue
Decorating the party venue is a fun way to get everyone in the mood for graduation. You can use graduation-themed decorations like balloons, streamers, and flowers. Or go with a more general party theme and just add some graduation touches like diplomas and tassels.
5. Set out party favors and decorations
Set out party favors and decorations near the entrance of the party so that guests can grab them as they arrive. Party favors can be anything from graduation-themed stickers and tattoos to mini-umbrellas and sunglasses. And don't forget the photo backdrop! A graduation-themed photo backdrop is perfect for taking selfies with friends.
6. Play graduation-themed music
There's no better way to get everyone in the mood for a graduation party than by playing graduation-themed music! You can find a variety of playlists online or on streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music.
7. Serve food and drinks
Once your guests have arrived, it's time to serve up some food and drinks! Be sure to have plenty of both available so that everyone can find something they like. And don't forget the napkins and utensils!
8. Clean up after the party
The last thing you want after a great party is having to clean up afterwards! Make things easy on yourself by setting aside a section of your house specifically for party cleanup or hiring a cleaning service to do it for you.
9. Thank everyone for coming!
Before everyone leaves, be sure to take a moment to thank them all for coming to your graduation party. It's been a lot of work, but it's all worth it when you see how much fun everyone had!
