Here are a few things to keep in mind when coming up with different graduation party ideas.
- Are they graduating high school or college?
- Have they selected a major course of study or selected a career?
- Is the party being given for more than one student?
- Other helpful information to know are things like school colors and school mascot.
Incorporate this information into party decor as either the main theme or use as accents throughout the decor.

Create warm and inviting tables. Easy graduation party decorations include the use flowers with the school colors displayed in mason jars, add a pennant featuring the year. The added touch of the book on the table is a perfect reference to education and a unique idea.

A photo both is fun for everyone. Either run one yourself or hire a company to come to your home. If you are going to create one yourself for your graduation party, make sure to have fun props the guests can use in their photos.
Create a memory jar for the grad. Ask family and friends to write a favorite memory of the grad and collect them in the jar. Imagine how delightful it will be for them to read after the party….or 20 years later.
Pick a theme to create an amazing graduation party. Using a theme can help pull all the different elements of a great party together. Here are two themes we adore.
Oh The Places You’ll Go Theme, based on the famous book by the amazing Dr. Seuss, is whimsical and fun. With features of hot air balloons and aspects of traveling and exploring the world, one can have quite a bit of fun with this graduation party idea.
The old suitcases stacked are quite clever. The rolled up maps on the table not only fit the theme perfectly, but also reference a diploma. The hot air balloons are such a lovely touch, and cookies in their shape makes for a sweet dessert.
Throw Keys To Success themed graduation party. Such a clever idea! Create a board featuring different “keys to success” and ask family and friends to offer up their own advice.
