“Don’t Panic Mom!” Graduation Party Tips

This time of year, it’s easy for Mom to panic when she realizes that graduation time is fast approaching. How can you plan a graduation party with your sanity still intact? It is possible!

Start with the Basics

First things first:  choose a date for your celebration. Don’t despair if you haven’t done this already; do it now! Be sure to check your calendar, the school calendar, and your son or daughter’s calendar for conflicts since graduation is one of the busiest seasons of the year.

After you have a date, decide on a location. You may like the idea of hosting a graduation celebration at your own house. If not, check into availability of rooms at a church or community center. If you don’t mind taking a chance with the weather, you may even want to plan an outdoor party.

What about a theme? Consider your son or daughter’s interests and you can center your party around them:  from a football party to a beach party to a 50’s party,  the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.


Now that you’ve settled those basic details, it’s time to get specific. You can begin by ordering invitations.

Also consider tableware: table covers, centerpieces, plates, cups, napkins and cutlery.

You now have the basics for a successful graduation party.
