Fun Graduation Party Ideas

It’s an exciting time of year – it’s getting warmer in much of the U.S., plants are in bloom, and it’s time for graduations and graduation parties. It’s an emotional time for all involved, parents and their graduating kids – there are mixed emotions all around. Above all, it’s time for parents to celebrate their kids’ getting over the first big hurdle toward adulthood and all their children accomplished. It’s an occasion worth celebrating – it’s time to plan the graduation party.

Let’s get started on these excellent Instagram and Tik Tok-worthy party ideas! 

1. Backyard Graduation Party  


Considering that much of the United States is too cold to host celebrations outdoors for months at a time, that alone is a reason to have outdoor parties. An outdoor graduation party is always fun when family and friends come together. Consider posting chalkboard welcome signs, bringing out the barbecue grill and setting up a dessert bar. 

The WeInvite Event Planning Platform has everything you need to plan and manage your graduation party, from free eInvitations to hiring caterers, waitstaff, DJs and more.  

2. Glam Grad Party 


For the style-conscious graduate in your life, glam it up! This also works beautifully in the backyard. Consider color coordinating with colors like black, gold, pink or silver – whatever your grad chooses. If you and your graduate want to go all out, consider renting tables, chairs, linens or tents. You could also hire a DJ and rent a dancefloor if you have a flexible budget. What’s important is that your graduate has a say in the details and the party reflects their personality. You can even have a red carpet with a step and repeat just like the celebs. Find a local printer or one online to make a custom step and repeat banner for fantastic photo opportunities.
