Graduation Party Ideas – Kraft & Shine

Graduation season is right around the corner and that means you have just enough time to plan a fun party! We took our Kraft Ribbon Booklet for Her graduation invitations and used the fun and vibrant colors to jump-start our party theme.

When guests walked in, the first thing they saw was our welcome table filled with goodies. We displayed the graduation invitation on the table along with a small tin washtub to collect cards and gifts. As a way to get the guests involved, we set out colorful markers and our Kraft & Foil Comment Cards and invited them to write down their favorite thing about the Grad. We then hung the comment cards with our DIY fun colored clothespins. Guests could also take a Push-Pop Confetti (found at Thimblepress) as they entered the party.

The menu was simple. We chose every teen’s favorite: Chipotle! They offer burritos by the box in their locations where catering is available. We stacked them up and cut open a few so you could tell what the options were. You can’t go wrong with Chipotle!

For the mobiles hanging above the serving table, we used embroidery hoops, fishing line and Kraft & Foil Table Decor Graduation Party Decorations. We also used a tutorial from A Pretty Cool Life for the adorable banner on the front of the dresser. It combines the foil look with the colors, just like our party invites! So adorable, we can hardly stand it.

Finally, guests helped themselves from our drinks and desserts bar, which included French vanilla cupcakes and punch, in colors to match the graduation announcement! For a backdrop, we printed out square photos of the grad and attached them to giant cardboard numbers cut out in the shape of the class year, and added some bright balloons. Your party will definitely stand out from the others with this great photo display idea!

We hope you have fun planning your party with our graduation party ideas! And, of course, look for all these coordinating Kraft & Foil graduation products at Pear Tree.

Graduation Party Ideas – BBQ Bash

Graduation party ideas can come from anywhere, but the best place to start is with your grad. The party theme can revolve around his or her favorite food (such as our BBQ graduation party), an activity (such as our Photo Booth party), their high school or college (such as our Classic party) or something as simple as her favorite colors (such as our Bright Colors party).

Once you choose a theme, it’s time to get creative. It’s fun to come up with ways to tie the food, decorations and graduation invitations into the theme for a party that wows teens and parents alike. We’ve created a Pinterest board to gather ideas for this unique BBQ Bash graduation party. From the invitations to the dessert, everything comes together perfectly.

Take the party outside with a summer BBQ party theme. Whether you go with the classic red and white gingham check, or make it your own with school colors, the casual theme makes everybody feel at home.

Who doesn’t love hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs or chicken, hot off the grill? Just be sure you’ve got enough grills and cooks to feed a crowd. Mason jars for drinks like iced tea or lemonade, bandanas for napkins and watermelon on a stick add to the colorful decor.
