Planning a party to celebrate your grad and send them off with a bang? Here’s a few ideas to pin to your grad party idea board!


Set the Stage

Decorating could be as simple as adding boards and tassels to make bottle “caps,” or you could go all out and make mortarboard candy pops, cupcakes, and serving ware.


Don’t forget to include plenty of memories – graduation is the perfect time to reminisce. Use photos instead of flags to create garland decorations celebrating your grad’s accomplishments!


Give a Proper Send-off

Celebrate your grad’s new-found independence by giving them a nice little cushion to get started with. Deck your grad in a money leis for the ceremony. For the party, leave a box to collect cards (even decorated like a mortarboard maybe?) on the gift table.


Stay Well-stocked

Tasty treats can make or break a party. Our snack attack Pinterest board is loaded up with some delicious recipes, perfect for an outdoor summer party. Grill up some chick’n skewers and beefless kabobs for a tasty meal that’s easy to grab. For a snack on theme, cook up some stuffed mushroom caps!


Good luck pinning, and congratulations to all the grads out there!
