Graduating from high school is a momentous occasion for both parents and children alike. It’s a time to reflect on all that has been accomplished while looking forward to the future. It’s also a great time to find the perfect graduation venue and throw a party. Here are five ideas for making your child’s high school graduation a memorable occasion they won’t soon forget.
Include a Photo Booth
Believe it or not, it is actually possible to hire a company to set up a photo booth at your venue. If cost is an issue, set up a simple photo ‘booth’ backdrop for pictures and use your own camera to take fun pictures of all the attendees. Provide some graduation caps for a fun little twist.
Your graduate might finally be turning 18, but he or she is still a few years away from drinking legally. Mocktails are the perfect solution for giving the illusion that they are all grown up. Mocktail recipes like the Strawberry Chamomile ‘Maritini’ or the Blueberry Mojito are sure to satisfy some finicky taste buds.
Graduation Themed Dessert Table
Feed your hungry party-goers with treats galore. Skip the main course and offer a variety of graduation themed desserts. From decorative sugar cookies to children’s lollipop rings, the ideas are limitless.
No party is complete without a DJ. Provide some energizing music to get both young and old alike dancing and moving. Or maybe loud music isn’t really your style? Then hire a caricaturist or hypnotist for an interesting and unique party activity.
Include a Slideshow
Walk down memory lane and include pictures of your graduate from birth to adulthood. Along with some fun storytelling, the photos are sure to bring out some “oohs” and “awws” along the way.
