  • Create unique and personal invitations with photos.
  • Include the school colors, fight song or mascot
  • Send an index card and ask each guest to write down a memory or funny story about the Graduate and bring it to the party. Put out a Graduation Card Box for the memory cards, or put them all in an album with photos from the party for the graduate.


  • Balloons, streamers, festooning, crepe, confetti and banners will  look great in your school colors. Fill your space with fun decorations. It’s time to celebrate!
  • A Custom Banner is perfect for a Graduation Party. The graduate will feel honored seeing their name in print, and they will have a memento to keep.


  • Use disposable tableware to make your job easier. Order plates, bowls, silverware, napkins, and cups in your school colors.
  • For ease of ordering, look for tableware party packs.
  • Plastic glassware is fancy looking, but affordable and disposable. Great for any party.
  • Don’t forget to order extra tablecovers for the food and gift tables. Table skirts are a nice touch too; they add a more finished and festive look.
