Say Congrats to Your Grad with Fun Themed Party Decor!

PartyIt’s that time of year again when the kids grow up and reach that big milestone called graduation!  Whether the next step is college or real life, celebrate this special moment with something as bright as they are.  Here are some of our favorite decor ideas from around the web…

Theme:  Obviously your central idea is graduation, but try coming up with something a little more original.  We love this “Key’s to Success” theme from the Celebrations at Home blog. The guests could write notes to the graduate on little key tags.  Click on the link for more great ideas for this theme.

Party TableAnother great theme idea from Piggy Bank Parties, “Picture Your Future,” showcases great DIY party garland with polaroids and pom poms.

Party TableColors: Most people choose to use the color of the graduate’s school as the palette for their parties, but you don’t always have to go that route.  Try just using one of the colors and mixing it with a more neutral shade so it really stands out.  This great neon palette from Martha Stewart will brighten up any party.

Party TableCenterpieces: Ditch the traditional cap and diploma centerpieces and try this elegant book idea.  Your grad should have a bunch of books lying around the house after all those years of hard work!

Party CenterpieceFood: Since guests may have multiple graduates to congratulate on the big day, open houses generally work best.  So, try to keep your menus simple with recipes that will be best at room temperature.  Having a treat or dessert table is a great way to incorporate your theme.
