Graduation Party Checklist: Theme and Decorations

Not sure where to start with your graduation planning? Welcome to our graduation party checklist, a series of posts on what you can be doing right up until graduation day!

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.

Setting the date just might be the hardest step in planning your graduation party. There will be lots of parties, and finding a date all to yourself may not be possible. But experienced moms have a few tricks up their sleeves.
