So you have a graduation party to plan and you are not sure what theme you would like to go with. I thought it would be a good idea to write an article with several ideas for families to choose from. If you have some of your own unique ideas you would like to add to the article you can add them in the comments section below the article.
You may be surprised to learn that many teens actually like the idea of a vintage graduation party. You can have vintage typewriters used as decoration, and even the invitations can have a nice vintage look to them. This type of theme really stands out for kids, and makes the graduation party very unique. You can try the online store Etsy to find some vintage looking decorations that will really stand out.
If you really want to think outside the box why not have a chalkboard theme party. The chalkboards go great with the entire graduation from school idea. You can have napkins and utensils in the chalkboard like color. You can also have a chalkboard cake, and party favors that are frames that look like little chalkboards. This is an easy theme to create and you can really run with your imagination. You can even make your own invitations to make them look like chalkboards.
If you have a child who was really into sports when they were in high school, than why not make the sport the main theme. For example if they liked basketball than why not fill a vase with mini basketballs and put them as the centerpieces on each table. You can incorporate their favorite sport all over the party, with themed balloons and even table clothes that match their favorite team.
If you have a graduate who loves the outdoors why not give them an outdoor theme. Bringing nature into a graduation party is really easy to do. You can use flowers for a girls themed party, and for a boy you can incorporate a wooden forest theme. If your child loves to camp why not make this the theme of the party, by putting little tents over the food especially if you are outside. You can also plan a graduation BBQ which goes along with the outdoors theme. The food can be grilled fresh on the day of the party which really makes for a great party.
Why not just make the diplomas the theme of the graduation party. You can put little diplomas all around the room. And even get balloons in the shape of diplomas. To make the food go along with the theme is really easy to go along with. For example the cake and cupcakes can look like little scrolls as well.
