Graduation Party Theme Ideas
Remember that graduation party themes are usually used to reflect some aspect of the student the party is being thrown for. If they were highly active and involved in sports, then it makes sense to throw a sports-themed party; if they were more focused or engaged in academic extracurriculars, then designing the theme around their studies would fit best. You could even mix and match and see what you come up with!
College/High School Graduation Party Decorations
Once you have a theme decided, the fun part comes—the themed decorations.
With most events, the decorations and the theme go pretty much hand-in-hand, and there isn’t a whole lot of variation between the theme and the event itself.
But a high school or college graduation party is different because, on top of the decorations for the theme, you’ll also have decorations specifically for the guest of honor, aka the graduate.
So one of the most significant decisions with graduation-themed decorations is how are you going to arrange them? Do you want a kind of beautiful centerpiece, with the graduate’s senior picture, class pictures, baby photos, and others on a bulletin board, or in a video montage somewhere central to the room? Or do you want something simpler, maybe even just a poster board with photos collected over the years that the gift table can put over?
Whatever you choose, the graduation-themed decorations are the key to a good grad party. It’s an excellent way of celebrating the graduate’s hard work, their life up to that point, and the fact that they’re growing up.
