Graduation season is just around the corner and everyone wants to celebrate. However, due to the global health crisis, we need to adapt to the new norm. Don’t worry, you can still give your beloved graduate a party that he/she deserves. The following are some amazing at-home graduation party tips.
Tip No. 1: Go Bold
Event planning is all about creating a celebration that everyone will surely remember. Whether you are planning a virtual party or waiting to celebrate later in the summer, a grad party has to be epic and fun. One sure way to do that is by adding a bold statement that makes your graduate feel extra special. Be creative and create slogans that celebrate your graduate like, “Jason Gets a Standing Ovation!” or “Tina Conquered the School!”
Tip No. 2: Make Lasting Memories
A great graduation party needs a cool photo backdrop. Set the scene for the entire event with the perfect background and amazing photo props. You can also use it as a virtual background to go with your virtual party theme. A simple picture backdrop can be enhanced by adding balloons and a cute banner. Level up the festive vibe by incorporating poms and paper flowers. Remember, to make your camera angle wide enough to capture all the fun details when video chatting family and friends.
Tip No. 3: Make it Unique
The key to a wonderful graduation party is to make it unique. Add a twist to your party with a fun theme. Make the celebration more exciting with themes like Grad to Meet You or Tiki Paradise. Don’t forget to post the party pictures on social media or create a vibrant backdrop to stand in front as the guests engage in video chats. Tell the guests to wear themed costumes so they can join the celebration wherever they may be.
Tip No. 4: A Trip Down Memory Lane
Graduation is a huge milestone and it’s important to take the time to look back and witness how it all unfolded. You can frame the special moments and curate them to tell a story throughout the graduation party. Put up a memory board with the grad’s best moments, or showcase pics of the graduate playing their favorite sport on photo numbers that match their jersey number. Make a slideshow for guests to watch at specific times or place the photos in the corner of your backdrops for a virtual party. You can also display personalized yard signs with the grad’s favorite pictures to show how much they’ve changed through the years. It is vital to also pay tribute to everything and everyone that helped them in their academic journey.
Graduation is a huge event and must be celebrated even during these difficult times. Your hard-working graduate deserves all the support and love. Fortunately, technology makes it possible for us to celebrate with our friends and families. Virtual graduation parties will surely be a big hit for most people, whether they be in Arizona or Morgantown, WV.
