Graduating high school is not only a proud moment for the graduate, but for you as a parent. Your grad is beginning a new chapter and it’s only fitting to make the graduation party one to remember—here’s how!
Establish your budget & your guest list early
Create a plan for your finances, predicting the cost for each component of you’re the party: food, decorations, activities, and invitations! Your expenses can rack up fast so with a well-thought out plan in hand, you will know exactly what you need to spend on what.
Then once you’re ready to purchase the grad party necessities, send out your invitations! Your child isn’t the only grad in the neighborhood, so the earlier you choose a date and guest list, the better. Early planning will ensure that all of your grad’s friends and family will be present to celebrate this great accomplishment with them and give them a proper sendoff to college!
Making your graduate’s day memorable
The number one goal for any high school graduation party is to create lasting memories that your grad can take off to college in the fall. Create a way for your guests to share motivational messages and funny memories that your graduate can take with them, like a guestbook or a photo collage.
Think about food & activities
Any party needs to be entertaining at all times for it to be a success, so be sure to plan for good food and fun activities! Decide ahead of time if you want to do catering or do it yourself with guests bringing something to contribute to the table. Then ask your grad what type of entertainment they want, from caricature artists to a bounce house, and more, your grad’s party will be the talk of the town.
If you plan on hosting the grad party at your house, consider renting a tent to keep your guests cool and comfortable. It’s the perfect addition to any outdoor party or backyard BBQ. For all of your high school graduation party needs, call Action Tents at 931-359-0024 today!
