Cards you created. Ideas we love.
As any high school grad will admit, planning your grad party is one of the first tests you will face in your new status as a young adult. From the invitation to the decisions about what to serve, where to have it, who to invite and what activities to include, the planning can put a lot of stress on the grad and her family. Hali, a 2015 grad, took her duties in stride and created her own graduation invitations.
Graduating from college is an exciting milestone. This is one time you get to celebrate your own achievements and show the world what you were able to accomplish with lots of effort, focus and drive. If you choose to celebrate this milestone with a graduation party, it should be fun and reflect all the hard work you put in. Here are our top 5 college graduation party ideas that will inspire you to personalize your party with your own unique touch.

Planning a grad party can be an overwhelming task, but our graduation party ideas will help you get inspired in no time! This classic-themed graduation party features plenty of unique ways to make your graduation party fun & memorable.
To get this party started we chose our most popular graduation announcements ever, Favorite Photo. This simple announcement showcases a classic mixed-font greeting over a full photo. It also has room for four photos and all your party details on the back. You can even edit the black background color to your liking.
We wanted to create a space where guest could enjoy snacks while looking at photos of the graduate throughout the years. We used black as the main color and accented with gold and added a few pops of orange from the grad’s fall photos.
The highlight of the table setup is the Snapshots Custom Poster, which we used as a backdrop. This poster features 15 photos, which allows plenty of space to feature baby photos right up through senior year. It’s an easy alternative the typical collage photo boards. As a bonus, it is tear-resistant and can be used indoors or outdoors.

Your teen’s graduation is an exciting milestone, not only for the grad but for the whole family, marking their move into a new stage in life. Make the most of the moment with a graduation party filled with personality to match your grad’s. We used our Gold Sequin-Look Trifold Graduation Announcement as the theme for this graduation party, which inspired all of these graduation party ideas from the invitations to the decorations to the menu. Most of the products you see came from Pear Tree Greetings, Target or a local grocer.
We started with our graduation announcement for inspiration. We bought gold sequins, similar to the invite, and sprinkled them on the tables. (Sequins can be found at a craft store or online.) We also used the colors pink, gold and black to carry the theme throughout all the decorations.
We created a fun treat table where guests could enjoy cupcakes, pink lemonade, candies and sign the guest book print. Notice all the the pink, gold and black colors.
