Dare to be different!

You don’t have to have a theme for your grad party, but here is some food for thought.

Thank You

Take some of the focus off the grad and direct it back at guests – especially people who have made a difference in your student’s life. Invite all of your graduate’s teachers, coaches, and special friends who helped them along the way. Order a banner that says Thank you! Instead of congratulations.

Off to College

Is your graduate going to college? Deck the walls with college pennants, banners and jerseys from her new school. Check out their college web site. Many colleges sell merchandise over the internet.

Does your graduate’s future college lend itself to a more specific theme party? Texas BBQ? Florida Beaches? Boston Seafood?

Buy a large map of the United States and supply pins with labels for the kids to write their names on. Ask them to print their names and the names of their colleges on the label and put the pin on the map. It is a great conversation starter for the older guests as well.
