- 1 of 16
Jazz Up Balloons
Why tie balloons to the backs of folding chairs when you can hang adorable photos of the grad from them? If you're celebrating a younger child, affix photos of them from throughout the years to the bottom of the string to weigh them down. For older grads, try getting creative with "superlatives" of all of their friends. Not only will everyone love seeing their title, it will be a great conversation starter.
Cute Graduation Snack Cups
Transform store-bought applesauce, fruit, or pudding cups into fun (and allergy free!) graduation snacks kid—and adult—guests will love to nibble.
Make a Tissue Paper Party Sign
You don't need to be super crafty to create these eye-catching tissue paper numbers from Sugar Bee Crafts. All you need is tissue paper, glue, foam board, scissors—and a little patience—and you've got yourself a cute, cheap centerpiece that will look great in photos. As far as graduation party ideas go, this one's tops!
Display the Grad's Memories
Whether it's a class photo, a funny poem he once wrote, or an award she received, display the guest of honor's memories for everyone to see. Not only will it make for cute decor, it will be a sweet trip down memory lane.
Create a Memory Jar
These memory jars require practically zero effort and very little cash. Whether your child is graduating from preschool, middle school, or high school, guests will love jotting down a special memory of them and placing it in the jar as a keepsake. (And, of course, every grad will love reading them!)
Offer Words of Support
No matter what school your child is graduating from, it's a big step! Scatter a few inspirational quotes about moving forward on tables throughout the party. Your Home Based Mom's idea to write a sweet Dr. Seuss quote on a chalkboard might be one worth stealing.
Hand Out Cap and Gown Gumballs
These crafty cap and gown gumballs are the perfect favor for a graduation party. Leave a bucket filled with them by your door so guests don't forget to grab one on their way out. Too clever!
Make a Photo Wreath
This adorable photo collage wreath is a great way to display photos of the grad, and it's super easy to make.
