Graduation season is upon us and many of us are in the midst of planning an amazing graduation party. For those that are graduating; congratulations! Now, the hard work really starts!
If you want to make sure that your graduation party is a huge success, but you are unsure as to where to start, you need not look any further. This guide will guarantee that you throw the greatest graduation party of all time:
Pick a Theme
If you are looking at throwing a themed party, you need to make your guests aware of this sooner rather than later. Think about your theme and what you think your guests would like. Superheroes, movie stars, singers, artists, novelists and the like are all great fancy dress ideas. Incorporating a theme into your party will make sure that it is a hit with your fellow graduates.
Whatever you choose as your theme, simply make sure that all your guests follow the protocols of the theme. You do not want to be mismatched.
A great idea for a theme is to incorporate your degree into your party. Let’s take this as an example: if you have recently graduated with a politics degree, you may want a fancy dress party of your favourite (or infamous) politicians. It can be a fun way of commemorating the last three years of your academic lives.
Decorations are Important
Of course, you do not want to blow the party budget on decorations alone, but it is important to have a few key pieces to make your proceedings go off with a bang. Simple balloons and banners are great adornments and can truly add to the atmosphere of your party.
You can incorporate your alma maters colours into your balloons and decorations so that you can commemorate your university in a truly unique way.
Drinking games have been the lifeblood of your social lives for the last three years. You can incorporate a whole host of drinking games into your party so that everyone has a great time. There a wide range of drinking games to choose from such as:
- Beer pong
- Flip cup
- Slap cup
- Beer ball
The list is seemingly endless. Do remember to drink responsibly and not to drink too much.
Thinking about your guest list is critical. Do you want to invite everyone from your cohort or would you prefer it to be a small, and select, group of friends? Whatever you decide, you need to make sure that your chosen venue can hold the amount of people that you have invited. For a more intimate party, you can invite a few, close friends around to your home.
Legendary kitchen parties are synonymous among students. If you want to throw a huge bash to see everyone off into their adult, working lives then hiring a hall or community centre will be the perfect solution. Your guest list is fairly important to throwing a great party. After all, you do not want to be at your own party alone!
