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.

Tips for planning the perfect party for your grad

Graduation day should be celebrated! Your grad has just achieved a major accomplishment, and friends and family are surely going to want to congratulate them. If you are looking for the right way to honor them, check out some of the tips below for throwing your graduate a party to remember.

Creative congrats
A great way to show your pride for your grad is to showcase them on their custom college graduation announcements! Opt for one of Pear Tree Greetings’ beautifully crafted ribbon cards – like the Future on the Line – to display pictures of your graduate’s journey from their first day to their diploma. This announcement design features four cards strung on a ribbon, personalized with your favorite photos. You also have more than 70 color options to choose from to customize your greeting. We offer assembly services on this card, so you can save time and have us string them together for you, if you like!

Complement with color
Create a cohesive look at your celebration by coordinating colors. Get creative with your grad’s favorite hues or school colors! Arrange candy graduation caps and diplomas on custom cupcakes with matching liners to complete the look. Or choose tablecloths and napkins that show your graduate’s school pride.

Wish them well
Give your party guests the chance to write down their well wishes for the new grad! Decorate your tables with Faux Foil Prism Comment Cards that they can inscribe with inspirational messages or congratulations. You choose the colors of the text and class year, and the back is covered in our unique foil and colored triangle pattern. Your friends and family can write messages on the back for the grad to take with them on their future adventures.
