It’s that bittersweet time of year again – yes, graduation season! You are so proud of your children for successfully graduating, and yet you are sad to see them grow up so fast. In any case, it is time to celebrate their achievement! Whether it’s graduating from preschool, kindergarten, middle school, high school or college, your kids are on their way to bigger and better things.
We can show you how to throw the best do-it-yourself party and create the right atmosphere at any venue. Just follow some of these great graduation party planning tips and you will be the talk of the town:
Invitations: The most important detail of throwing a party is sending out your invitations! In this day and age invites can be done electronically or by mail. Just because you decide to email your invitations, that does not mean they have to be boring. Whichever route you choose, try using photos of your graduate and classmates surrounded by their school colors. For high school grads you can theme it like a college acceptance letter… “Congratulations, you have been accepted to attend Sally’s graduation party!”
Decorations: Again, light up your venue with colorful balloons and table settings themed around the school colors. Use miniature chalkboards with the names of your guests as place settings. Place photos of the graduate and his/her classmates all over walls and tables. Make it a feast for your party-goers’ eyes.
Music and Entertainment: Get the party started and keep your guests entertained with the right music! Kindergarten and preschool graduates may enjoy music they can move along to like the chicken dance and other fun tunes. For the older graduates, the playlist should include memorable songs from their last few years in school. Create a cool video montage of photos from the past school year’s events and set it to this music.
Cake/Dessert: If you decide to go with the classic cake, embellish it with a photo of the graduation class. For the smaller dessert bites, create some chocolate-rolled diplomas. Also, right now cake pops are all the craze, how about some graduation cap cake pops!
“For Keepsake”: Have everyone at the party sign a giant poster that your graduate can then display on the wall in his/her room, especially a dorm room! Place a large graduation cap, markers and some paper in the center of your table with instructions for everyone to write a special note on what they will miss about their graduate friend or just school memories in general. For the little ones who are not great spellers, they can add cute drawings. If you want to brag about your graduate, set up an accomplishment cube at each table that states all his/her great academic and athletic achievements.
Favors/Gifts: How about a Bombinizz bag! Those high school graduates sure could use a place to put their dorm room pillow and necessities when they travel off to their college dorm room. You can always add some fun stuff in the bags too: CDs, silly gadgets, school supplies, toiletries, a themed pillow case, etc.
Don’t forget to have plenty of food and drinks available, it’s always better to have leftovers than to have hungry guests! And finally, some house parties can run quite late, if you plan on having people sleep over – don’t forget your Bombinizz. From pillows, toiletries to extra clothes, the Bombinizz is the perfect carry-all bag for a variety of your sleepover needs.
Looking for a versatile, carry-all bag with fun, trendy fabrics for your on-the-go needs? If you answered “yes,” then you can join the Bombinizz craze.
With its patented design, the Bombinizz is the most versatile bag for the many activities in your life. Whether you’re a new mom carrying a million baby things, an athlete with sporting equipment, a student with books and supplies, or guest at a sleepover, the Bombinizz fits all needs and lifestyles.
