Our new graduation party decorations are super versatile to use when planning a graduation party. We put together 5 graduation party decoration ideas using different versions of our table decor from Pear Tree Greetings!
1. Wall Decor. We used our Glam Grad Gold Graduation Party Decorations and taped pieces to the wall to make this fun (and easy!) design. This display was great by the food table, but could be used wherever you would like. It’s a great way to showcase the grad’s photos with a little sparkle!
2. Hanging Decor. Using our Snapshot Graduation Party Decorations, we took twine and clothespins and hung the table decor pieces and mixed in photos of the grad – from baby pictures to senior year. It displayed nicely across the dessert table and was great for the guests to see how he has grown through the years.

When you ask a graduating senior, “What’s the most important thing to consider when planning a grad party?” the answer is always the same: food! If the food is good, their friends will come—it’s as simple as that. Their favorite graduation food ideas fall into two camps: DIY or catered, and it all depends on your budget.

Sometimes graduation party planning starts with a theme, and sometimes the theme creates itself based on the party location, an unusual activity or food idea. We don’t think it’s essential to pick a theme for your grad party, but it definitely helps to have a way to tie everything together! Here are a few theme ideas that incorporate graduation party decorations, food ideas, activities and more.
High school colors make a simple theme and one that’s easy to carry off. Since they’re usually easy to find, these basic colors can be incorporated into foods (like frosting) and graduation party decorations. See our Classic Graduation Party Pinterest board for ideas.
Sports or a Hobby
If your grad has an activity or hobby that has defined his or her high school years, it’s natural to use that as your party theme. See our All Star Graduation Party for ways to bring a sports theme (or any other theme) to life!
I am so excited to show off our new graduation party decorating ideas! Now you don’t have to settle for the same generic decorations everyone else has, you can use your grad’s photos and school colors to create your own custom graduation party decorations at Pear Tree.
Our new table decor is just plain fun, and there’s so much you can do with it. It comes in sets of circles or squares that vary in size from 3” to 5” across. Some can be personalized with photos, some with text. Each piece is two sided with a solid color or pattern on the back side, and you get to choose from over 70 colors for the pieces. You’ll have a blast thinking of graduation party decorating ideas for these, from centerpieces to garland to cake toppers! Continue reading
Every graduation party has its own vibe. And the best way to make the party your own is to start is with your grad. What are her interests? How can you use her personality to come up with a party theme? Here are a few easy ways to incorporate your grad’s story into your graduation party ideas. We’ve chosen a girl’s pink and gold glitter theme, but the same ideas and design elements can work for any theme.
What girl doesn’t love a little glitter in her life? We made this party extra sparkly with our Glam Grad Graduation Announcements, and sprinkled gold glitter accents everywhere!
A girly party like this calls for a girly meal. We made adorable chicken salad sandwich triangles and fruit kabobs on skewers. You could also add some fresh veggies displayed neatly. For the beverages we chose lemonade with coordinating pink striped paper straws and edible glitter rims on the milk glasses. To get the glitter rim we dipped the glasses in some vanilla and then dipped them in edible glitter or sugar sprinkles. For the backdrop on this glam table setup we used our Glam Grad Gold Party Decorations and stuck them to the wall in a fun gradient/fading pattern.
