Whether you have lots of time and money to spend OR you're on a budget, don't forget incorporating these 5 ideas to make your event memorable.
1) Use the Cap and Gown
Find a place to hang your student's cap and gown for decor backdrop and photo opportunities. You may want to highlight what cords and sashes represent in a nearby frame for inquiring family and friends.
2) Arrange Beverage Bottles and Cans
Arrange bottles and cans you plan on serving to guests in the year of graduation. For smaller gatherings, use the last two digits of the graduation year. Have plenty of ice nearby, and you could use an oval or round bucket for the zero.
3) Use School Swag with Logo
Use school promotional items with visible logos to incorporate into the decor. For example, we used this oversize mug as a mini vase for flowers. Another example would be to use pen with college logo for guest sign in book.
4) Dollar Tree Balloons
You can get so much more for your money by incorporating balloons from the Dollar Tree (ok, $1.25 tree) but still! You can still go fancy and extravagant, while saving for college. Use staggered as in pic on a mantel or use on each side of a photo wall.
5) Beverage and Dinner Napkins
If you have helpers, try tying white dinner napkins to look like diplomas and use black beverage napkins to resemble the graduation caps.
These are just a few ways to make your party memorable without overspending - using what you may already have around you.
Sidenote -These pictures are from decorating for my niece's college graduation in 2021. This year, our son graduated from college, but didn't want to celebrate with a party. So, it's always good to ask. If your graduate wants a party, I hope these ideas make for a great celebration. Please comment below and let us know if you found these ideas helpful.
