Ideas For A Memorable Graduation Party

Are you the proud parents of a new graduate?
Yes, It's that time of year again - as high school and college grads have completed their final year and you the proud parents are trying to plan a fantastic celebration on behalf of them. Here are a few tips and ideas for making it memorable.
Make a table with all your graduates achievements, accomplishments and memorabilia that guests can go through. Create a picture board or photo album of pictures cherished throughout the years. (this makes a special gift for after the party is over) -- This is their day and a bit of bragging is in order.

One of the most popular gifts to give at a grad party are cards. Get creative and create a Graduation Cap Card Box.

Available for a limited time: Table Attire, Great for covering folding tables, dining tables, and other tables. These contoured covers are made to fit over your tables and are perfect for an elegant party or casual get-together. Currently clearanced and available in only royal blue, cream and hunter green. Machine washable, never have to purchase rolls of table plastic again.

Simple Graduation Party Centerpieces made with decorative vase filler accents in school colors, the graduates photo, the year their class is graduating and fruit filler.

Now you can dress up those metal or wood folding chairs.
Cotton Duck Folding Chair Covers are a stylish way to complement any party decorating style. Available in black, linen and natural. 

Apply Decorative Sashes to add your own unique touch to chairs, tables and doorways. Accent with your school colors or favorite summer color.

Create a food buffet:
Keep stress levels down by keeping it simple with foods. Consider having the party catered, this will save time on shopping and cooking. If that's not in the budget, plan a menu of foods that can be prepared ahead of time.  taco bar ~ sliced subs ~ finger foods ~ cold salds ~ crock pot dishes
