Is someone you love graduating soon? Whether from high school or college, you probably want to commemorate the special occasion with a party in the grad’s honor. If so, there are some simple ways to help make the party meaningful and fun, for both you and your guest-of-honor. Best of all, you don’t have to spend months planning a great graduation party. You just need to make a few key decisions that will help ensure it’s a great, memorable celebration of your grad!
Choosing a Venue Helps Make the Party Stand Out
One simple way to make the party special is to host it somewhere other than your home. This can create a unique backdrop for the bash, and save you the hassle of last-minute cleaning during what is likely already a busy season for your family.
Just be sure to choose a venue that will be able to comfortably fit your entire guest list, and that fits your grad’s style. Whether she has always loved the country, or is more of a city girl, take her personal taste into consideration when deciding what venue is right for the party. Many wedding venues are also open for hosting other special occasions, such as graduation parties or even going away showers. So if you love a venue in your area, talk to them about the option of renting it for an event like this.
Graduation season does tend to coincide with wedding season, though, so it’s important to book the venue as soon as possible. If your favorite area venue is already booked on the Saturday of your child’s graduation, don’t be afraid to opt for a Friday or Sunday date for the party, instead.
