400+ Graduation Party Ideas 2021 - Food Life Design

My baby is graduating from high school next month.

Pretty soon my nest will be empty and I’ll have all kinds of time available.

But right now, I’ve got 2 parties to plan and help plan.

Not only will we be having our usual family celebration, but, the moms of our class are putting on a party to celebrate all 6 of our graduates at once.

There is lots and lots to do!

So, this post is filled to the brim with graduation party themes, invitations, party food ideas, decorating tips and even, ideas for party games!

I’ve scoured the Internet in search of all the best graduation party ideas to share with you and I’ve come up with quite a list.

So, let’s get started…

To Theme or Not to Theme?

Are you going to have a themed graduation party or will you be keeping it more traditional by using school colors or black, white and gold?

It’s important to decide up front whether you will have a theme party or not.

If you are hosting a themed party, then everything else will need to follow the pattern…if not, feel free to have fun and mix things up!


Plan a guest list & Send invitations

Who are you going to invite to your party?

Make a list that includes your friends and/or family. And make it more fun than a telephone call!

If you’re design savvy, whip up your own invitation or pick up some on Amazon or Etsy.
