This is an exciting time! Your child is going to graduate. A special day calls for a special party. Some graduation party planning will help to make that party a success.
Graduation party planning usually starts with figuring out what kind of party you’d like to have and making the guest list. Is your grad usually the life of the party with lots of friends? Is your grad quiet with a few close friends? Create a guest list and theme based on your graduate’s preferences.
Where’s the party?
First, you’ll need to choose a location for the party. There are a few questions you can ask yourself to make this decision. How much can you comfortably spend on this party? Do you have enough space in your home or backyard? Do you want to cook food for the party, or would you prefer to order the food from a restaurant or caterer. Do you want to have the party at a restaurant so you don’t have to worry about cooking and cleaning?
Inviting Your Guests
You may be tempted to skip sending out Paperstyle graduation party announcements and invitations and opt for sending Facebook invitations. There are three good reasons to take the time to send out graduation party invitations. First, graduation is a special time. Some of your friends and family may want to add your invitation to a scrapbook. Second. Though many people do have a Facebook account, you don’t know how often they log in. Finally, your aunt Matilda may not own a computer and would feel left out of the fun if she didn’t receive an invitation.
Dance to the music
What’s a party without music? You’ve got some great options here. You could make a playlist of your grad’s favorite music, mix it up with a few oldies for the adults and shuffle the playlist. You can connect an iPad or another music player to your stereo and be your own deejay.
Alternatively, you could hire a professional deejay or a live band.
Putting it all together
Now that you’ve done some graduation party planning, it’s time to put your plan into action. Make your guest list, mail your invitations, buy food if your party is at home, make any necessary reservations for restaurants or deejays, and then focus on enjoying your special day with your grad.
