Over-the-Top Graduation Celebration Tips

Your graduate has reached a major milestone and now it’s time to celebrate!  It’s easy to design a party that will wow everyone and let that graduate know how proud you are of their accomplishments.  

Let your guests know about the event by sending custom graduation invitations.  Choose the colors and font, insert a picture and have the best invitation around.

As people arrive to your party, personalized yard signs will help direct them where to go and will announce that they have arrived in the right place.  A personalized door decoration will direct people inside to the party.

Be sure to hang a large multi-photo banner near the entrance. This vinyl banner will show pictures of several special moments in your grad’s life and let the guests share in those moments.   Other banners congratulating your graduate can be hung elsewhere.

This will be a busy day for your graduate.  A life-sized standee can help greet the guests!   Fill the party location with graduation balloons, while adding a little shimmer by using liquid metallic fabric to decorate for this special event.  Choose a solid color table cover in a school color, and then choose either a matching table skirt or one in a contrasting school color. Sprinkle black confetti on the table, especially around the graduation centerpiece.

Send your guests home in style with an imprinted favor sack filled with graduation related candies like graduation candy bars and lollipops, and beads in the school colors.

After this amazing day has come and gone, make sure that your grad has a memento of the occasion. A signature graduation cap is a wonderful way to have guests record that they were a part of this day.

Party Ideas for Graduation 2012

If you have senioritis, graduation might seem ages away, but if you have a party to plan it’s not too early to start making arrangements. Stumps Prom offers a wide selection of event decorations, tableware and supplies to help you host a 2012 graduation party worthy of your achievements.

Invites and Graduation Announcements

Stumps Prom is your first-stop for event printing. We can custom print your  announcements and graduation invitations with your graduation info, accolades, and any other details.

Choose a quotation for your invites or announcements to add a touch of wisdom or humor your friends and family will love. For example, try:

The tassel’s worth the hassle!”

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” – Henry David Thoreau

“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” – Mark Twain

Once you’ve ordered your announcements and/or invites, you’re ready to plan your graduation decorations.

Decorate with Color

Decorate the whole party in your high school colors or your new college’s colors. Shop our decorations by color to find all the tableware, streamers, balloons, and big items such as arches and columns that you need. Centering your event theme on a color scheme helps you coordinate your party simply but effectively. Plus, the event will look amazing in pictures for years to come. We also offer plenty of decorating accents such as wall decals, vinyl banners, and graduation yard signs that can be personalized with your school mascot.

To make the most of the beauty of a spring 2012 graduation, incorporate silk flowers and paper lanterns into your décor. Use floral garland to accent your patio or railings. If your party is set for the patio, our paper lanterns make a lovely, festive accent. The lanterns add a soft glow to your event and they can be reused too. Plus, if weather forces you to take the party inside they can come with you easily.

Inflatable Decorations Make a Big Impression

Use inflatable decorations to create stunning focal points or entrances to your graduation party. Our inflatable decorations are reusable and unique. Use inflatable arches to create a gorgeous entrance to your party or use the 2012 inflatable numbers (pictured) as a focal point guests can take their pictures with. Inflatable decorations look awesome on their own or as part of one of our theme decorating kits. You can accent your inflatable decorations with gossamer, garland, or other decorating materials to match your event colors.

Hand out Memorable Favors

Party favors are a great way to thank guests for coming to your party, especially if they are bringing gifts or coming from out of town for the event. Choose from our selection of graduation favors you can personalize with your mascot or cap and gown photo. Mint tins make great, practical keepsakes. Your friends will also love personalized graduation frames to display their favorite photo from high school.
