Most people host their graduation parties in their homes or yards. Take a look around your yard and determine where you would serve food and beverages. Do you have a flat area for tables and chairs? Where will you display photos of the graduate?
Consider the time of day and where the sun will be shining. Do you need a tent? Do you want guests to come through the front door? If not, use balloons to lead your guests to the party with a fun yard sign.
Do you want to make any improvements in your home or yard before the party? Many people find the graduation party is a great motivator.
On the other hand, who wants all those people trooping through the house looking for a bathroom? And isn’t life stressful enough without worrying that a monsoon will blow through on party day? And weeding? If your thoughts tend more towards this direction, think of some other options.
Does your graduate have a close friend whose family lives to entertain? Ask them if you can co-host a party at their home.
