Between May and June, college graduates will have earned their degrees and high school graduates are walking across the stage to take that next step. That also means it’s time to celebrate these accomplishments before they move onto their full-time career or head off to college.
Planning graduation parties can be quite stressful between deciding on a venue or preparing your own house to be one, estimating guests and how much food will be enough. You want it to be special, which means decorating is important. There are many creative, easy and affordable ways to decorate for a graduation party and make it unique.
Showcase who you are celebrating
Whether it’s indoors, outdoors, at a public venue or in your yard, you can identify where it’s at and who it’s for with a vinyl banner that includes a personalized graduation message and their graduating year. They’re easy to hang from pavilions, fences, posts and tents thanks to aluminum grommets that are added to each banner. Hopefully it doesn’t rain during your graduation party if it’s an outdoor venue, but if it does, vinyl banners are made and printed to hold up in mild outdoor weather.
Cover yourself and your party
If the party is outdoors, weather is a factor in some form. Whether it rains or is hot, you’ll want to put the food or tables under some sort of cover. Canopy tents can give coverage to your food and keep your drinks in the shade. The canopy can even be custom printed if you want a special message on it.
Where’s the party at?
Family from all over the area and maybe even out of state might be in for your graduate’s party. At a public park, rec center, indoors or outdoors or even at your house, make it easy for guests to find where they’re supposed to be. Yard signs are extremely affordable and can be placed in the yard outside of the indoor venue, at the top of the street of your house, outdoor venue or right in your front yard with your grads name saying the party is here.
The main attraction
Graduation parties are often a time of reflection. People reminisce about memories and how fast time has gone now that your graduate is ready for the world or college. This usually includes showing off old pictures and portraits of your grad with a collage at a table. Decorate this table with a table throw. You can also have them custom printed to commemorate the occasion.
A unique way to display nostalgic pictures and professional portraits of your graduate is with table top displays on the table with the custom throw. It’s a special table that’s a customized celebration point at the party.
Grandparents, out of town relatives and friends are all going to want pictures with the graduate. Instead of a boring wall, your house or other attendees in the backgrounds of these photos, you can create memorable graduation party photos by using retractable backdrops that have adjustable framing, can feature the graduate’s name, year and a special saying or message to commemorate the occasion.
Take the moment with you
Creative banner decorations to celebrate a graduation don’t have to be relegated to just the party. If you have a great senior portrait or photo from graduation day that you want to remember and show off in a special way, do it with removable custom wall decor. It’s unique way to display those photos. They’re different (possibly larger and cheaper) than a normal framed photo. You can hang them on your wall at home or even at work, if you don’t have room on your desk because you don’t want to take all of the other pictures of them off of it. They’re completely removable without peeling, ripping or damaging the walls they are attached too.
