My nephew, Kevin, graduated from high school this year, and I had lots of fun helping out with the decorations at his graduation party. Given that his future plans are to become an auto mechanic, it was perfectly fitting that the party was going to be held in the family garage!
Outside, we set up a yard sign and lawn games to welcome the neighbors. Inside the garage, the challenge was to make the large space feel welcoming and to keep the focus on our graduate. The school colors of blue and gold were the easiest way to tie the decorations together, but we incorporated photos of Kevin—baby photos, sports and vacation photos, and of course, his senior photo—wherever we could to make our graduation party ideas more personal.
The tables were covered in blue and gold, and scattered with Pear Tree’s personalized Chevron Celebration Graduation Confetti. Pots of blue and white flowers wrapped in blue and gold tissue decorated the tables. We also personalized lots of our Congrats Photo Table Decor with photos, colors and messages of congratulations, and poked of few of them into each centerpiece using wire photo picks.

Our new graduation party decorations are super versatile to use when planning a graduation party. We put together 5 graduation party decoration ideas using different versions of our table decor from Pear Tree Greetings!
1. Wall Decor. We used our Glam Grad Gold Graduation Party Decorations and taped pieces to the wall to make this fun (and easy!) design. This display was great by the food table, but could be used wherever you would like. It’s a great way to showcase the grad’s photos with a little sparkle!
2.Hanging Decor. Using our Snapshot Graduation Party Decorations, we took twine and clothespins and hung the table decor pieces and mixed in photos of the grad – from baby pictures to senior year. It displayed nicely across the dessert table and was great for the guests to see how he has grown through the years.
Not sure where to start with your graduation planning? Welcome to our graduation checklist, a series of posts on what you can be doing right up until graduation day! When you ask a graduating senior, “What’s the most important thing to consider when planning a grad party?” the answer is always the same: food! If the food is good, their friends will come—it’s as simple as that. Their favorite graduation food ideas fall into two camps: DIY or catered, and it all depends on your budget.

Sometimes graduation party planning starts with a theme, and sometimes the theme creates itself based on the party location, an unusual activity or food idea. We don’t think it’s essential to pick a theme for your grad party, but it definitely helps to have a way to tie everything together! Here are a few theme ideas that incorporate graduation party decorations, food ideas, activities and more.
High school colors make a simple theme and one that’s easy to carry off. Since they’re usually easy to find, these basic colors can be incorporated into foods (like frosting) and graduation party decorations. See our Classic Graduation Party Pinterest board for ideas.
Sports or a Hobby
If your grad has an activity or hobby that has defined his or her high school years, it’s natural to use that as your party theme. See our All Star Graduation Party for ways to bring a sports theme (or any other theme) to life!
Announcements or Invitations? Once upon a time graduation announcements were sent to notify friends and relatives of the actual graduation ceremony. Gradually, as parties have gotten more popular, announcements have been supplemented or replaced by open house invitations. These days the terms are used interchangeably to mean the same thing. Whether you call it an announcement or an invitation, what you put on it is up to you!
