Graduation parties will start popping up all over the place in the next month so get on top of that planning with these fun DIYs that will make your party stand out!
If you know you’re going to be having actual food at your party and not just finger foods then stock up on the plastic silverware, the kind that looks real, thick white napkins, and black ribbon. Stack the knife, fork, and spoon (in that order), roll into the white napkin, and tie the black ribbon around it with a bow. By the end you will have dozens of little diplomas!
This is a great way to remember the good years of high school or college by having little cards for people to write memories of them with you. Grab a huge glass jar with a lid and either paint “Memories” on it or make a little sign next to it so people understand the concept. Don’t forget to have a jar with plenty of pens and markers as well!
Everyone wants to see pictures of the grad at the party, it’s just a given. To make it more fun than just an overwhelming wall covered in photos, buy school colored balloons, put some helium in them, tie string or ribbon to the end and let them hang from the ceiling (balloon touching ceiling). Once you’ve printed out your photos, hole punch a hole at the top of each photo and tie one to each balloon. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can tie a few of those feather weight lamps to illuminate the pictures better.
Let’s face it, we’re in an age that loves taking pictures and putting them on Instagram. So why not just make a frame representing an Instagram photo! Buy a big poster board, cut out a decent size square and transpose everything you’d see on a regular Instagram photo onto you the top and bottom on the frame. Make sure to come up with a catchy hashtag!
What are you going to make for your grad party to make sure it’s unforgettable?
