Done, Now for the Fun! Graduation Party Ideas

Roll Call! Who has a graduate in the house this year?? After all that has happened, there is no better time to party than the present… (of course, as city regulations permit)… especially for someone who is graduating after years and years of hard work and studying. I was so lucky to be able to partner up with Festively on a Graduation Styled Shoot to bring you all the ideas you need to plan an amazing graduation and to find all that you need in one spot. They have made it so easy and seamless and have also provided tips on how to make it a safe party as well.

Please head on over to Festively’s Ultimate Guide to Planning a Grad Party for all the best ideas and tips.

For all the items that Festively has to offer for graduations, including our products, and amazing vendors please visit their website.

Here is a sneak peek of what wonderful goodies you will find….

Start the festivities off right with custom invitations highlighting the school your graduate is graduating from or what school they are off to.


Add personal touches to the party with advice and wishes cards to give some words of wisdom to the graduate. You can also put a party favor tag to thank your guests and personalized water bottles. Signage and menus are also great ways to make the party extra special.

Don’t forget to get gifts for the graduate to make them truly feel extra special and remind them that everyone is here to celebrate their achievements and success. Gifts like personalized graduation cap art, vision boards, leis, graduation cap designs, cakes and wine to spoil the honoree.

And what is a party without beautiful decor? Choose from beautiful backdrops, balloons, charcuterie trays and sweets.

And we cannot forget about one of the most important things of all. You can’t have a party without a place to hold it. Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California did not disappoint. The view was breathtaking and the space was magical and airy. So majestic!

None of this could have been done without the amazing team below. Feel free to check any of them out and show them some small business love and don’t forget to head on over to Festively and our site for everything you need!
