Each year more than three million students graduate from high school in the United States.
It is no wonder that most of us spend every weekend from the end of May to mid-June to participate in the graduation parties and open houses for exam teens by friends and family. While this time of year is really exciting, it can also be a bit strenuous. Especially if you’re dealing with one of the parties happens to be for your own particular candidate.
Planning The Party
When you’re planning a graduation party, you should keep your candidate personality in mind.
If he or she is outgoing, a big, noisy party would be a welcome treat, but if your candidate is shy or doesn’t like to be the center of attention, a smaller, more intimate party would be appreciated. Be sure you are hosting the party candidate will always remember and appreciate, engage him or her in your party planning.
Make It A Surprise
But if you’re thinking of throwing a surprise graduation party, putting together the guest list can get a little more challenging.
You will get some extra help with the guest list. You certainly do not want to leave any. If you are a part of their family, you can solicit help from a schoolmate to get you the names of Customers, your candidate wants to be included. Not only can they help you with the names of who to invite, but also who to avoid.
Decorating Your Home
The only thing difficult about decorating for a graduation party is to choose from the vast majority of themes out there.
There are so many types of party supplies these days that you will have easy time finding decorations specific to your exam theme. You can also choose to decorate, using school colors. Be sure to include the year of graduation decorations, you are using.
You can also look to have a cake that is made in the form of the exam year.
Make It Unique
One ideas is to rent a karaoke machine and ask everyone to perform.
Make it a contest.
Select team and see which works best. Have a panel of judges vote on the winner. Have a dance to go with the music. Consider a dance contest. Everybody can vote for a winner. Why not include some fun party games to create a lot of laughter and excitement. There is Pin the mustache on the teacher (with a blown up a picture of a teacher, instead of a donkey). Or keep notes with the teacher’s name on the guest’s back, so that they have to ask simple Yes or no questions to find out which teacher is “on his back”.
If it is really hot, you could have a water balloon toss. Treasure or scavenger hunts are also great. You can also rent a photo booth to give your guests the opportunity to enjoy taking funny pictures.
Another idea to add some good-natured fun is a roast. Has the candidate’s friends tell some real life embarrassing stories about the student. Something else that will add humor to mood reads a poem you have composed about your candidate. You can fill it with love, humor, inspiration and whatever else you choose. Have fun with it. Consider having a slide show with your child from birth to graduation.
Add some meaningful music and humorous or encouraging words. For permanent memories make a CD of your slide show.
