Unique Ideas For A Graduation Party

Every year, the months of May and June signal graduation time. Your graduate has studied hard, finished his or her exams and is ready to enter the "real world." But, first, commencement. Graduating students should be proud of their accomplishments and therefore deserve the official recognition of the commencement proceedings.

The school has celebrated your graduate's accomplishment, but what about you? Throwing a party is a good idea, but hosting an outdoor event is an even better idea. For that you'll need a backyard party tent.

How to find the right party tent

What size will you need? That will depend on how many guests will attend and the set up of the tent. Will there be tables for sitting down and eating? Will you only need chairs? What about an open space? First, decide on how many guests you will have and then use a handy online calculator to determine your backyard party tent size. Once you have that size, you can use other online references to determine the number of tables and chairs you will need.

There are two types of backyard party tents: frame tents and pole tents. Your tastes and style will be the determining factor in which tent you choose. You'll want to look at construction, durability, size, set up features, and flaps for doors and windows to name a few. It's all about getting the right tent for your graduate, your guests, and your budget.

Now, let's get to our graduation party ideas.

Ideas for a graduation party

  • Edible diploma: Give your graduate and guests a delicious table snack. Provide each table with individually wrapped crepes (pick the flavor you know your graduate likes) and wrap each crepe in black-and-white baker's twine, which will mimic the diploma.

  • Make your graduate a picture wreath: You’ll be proud to display your grad’s senior pictures. Attach some of your favorite pictures to a pre-made wreath. Add a little glitter or a ribbon, and presto! You're done. Your guests will be wowed when they see this unique picture wreath.

  • Create a Jenga book: Your graduate will cherish this idea. Better than a guestbook, Jenga blocks at the sign-in table give your graduate's party an extra flair of creativity. Have each guest sign an individual Jenga block to create individual messages for your grad.
