Graduation season is right around the corner and that means you have just enough time to plan a fun party! We took our Kraft Ribbon Booklet for Her graduation invitations and used the fun and vibrant colors to jump-start our party theme. Who said graduation parties have to be in school colors?!
When guests walked in, the first thing they saw was our welcome table filled with goodies. We displayed the invitation on the table along with a small tin washtub to collect cards and gifts as people arrived. To get the guests involved right away, we set out fun markers and our Kraft & Foil Comment Cards and invited them to write down their favorite thing about the Grad. We then hung the comment cards on the front of the dresser with our DIY fun colored clothespins. Guests could also take a Push-Pop Confetti (found at Thimblepress) as they entered the party.
The menu was simple. We chose every teen’s favorite: Chipotle! They offer burritos by the box in their locations where catering is available. It was no fuss, no muss. We just stacked them up and cut open a few so you could tell what the options were. You can’t go wrong with Chipotle!
For the mobiles hanging above the serving table, we used embroidery hoops, fishing line and Kraft & Foil Table Decor Graduation Party Decorations. We also used a tutorial from A Pretty Cool Life for the absolutely adorable banner on the front of the dresser. It combines the foil look with the colors, just like our party invites! So adorable, we can hardly stand it.
Lastly, guests helped themselves from our drinks and desserts bar, which included French vanilla cupcakes and punch, in colors to match the graduation announcement! For a backdrop, we printed out square photos of the grad and attached them to giant cardboard numbers cut out in the shape of the class year, ’14, and added some bright balloons. We just love the way this looks. Your party will definitely stand out from the others with this great photo display idea!
