Graduation Party Ideas * Class of 2016




Do you have a graduate this year? I do. My youngest is graduating high school. For a minute I thought it's my last graduation but not true I forgot about college graduation.  These are some ideas I thought were apropo for the 2016 graduating class party. I hope you like them too!


A photobooth at a graduation is an absolute must in 2016. This simple craft paper and metallic duct tape background you can put together in minutes and it look awesome. Even better in school colors!

  • Craft paper- here's a pretty good selection of colors.
  • Look at all the colors of Duct Tape. I'm sure you'll find your school colors!



You can't have a photo booth without some fun props. Here is a nice selection including the one pictured above.


Thinking Closet blog made this cute free printable so you can include a #hashtag at the photo booth and for the party! Cause you know it's 2016 after all.


For treats I love how My Life at Playtime blog used these clever word play on candy. Nerds, bookworms, Kool Kats and my favorite...


... class ring pops!


A quick easy and ever popular treat is Oreo cookie pops. Just roll them in school colors sprinkles. A great idea from Your Homebased Mom blog.


A few decorations that are simple and fun are all you need. Love these party hat lanterns from Kara's Party Ideas blog.  This is another one that can be made with school colors.

  • Here is a great color selection of chinese lanterns.

Loving these confetti filled balloons. Again this is another thing that is simple that can be customized in school colors. Wouldn't it be fun to pop them at the end of the party!?!
Happy party prepping!
