Who doesn’t love candy?! Set up a super cute candy bar like this one. I love the labels with the puns to go along with!
Polaroid guest book
I love this idea!! Have a polaroid camera at the party and pass it around to get priceless, unfiltered shots! Have everyone stick the pictures in a guest book with fun written notes.
This is such a cool idea! This can be used as a graduation gift idea or it’s perfect for a decor center piece.
I love the idea of decorating for whichever school you are graduating from. So if your school colors are red and white, all the decor be those colors. Don’t forget to include some cute college logos!
Use your graduation year
An easy way to decorate and personalize your decor is to use the year that you graduated. There are so many cute decor pieces on places like Amazon and PartyCity with the year on it! This bundle from Amazon has everything you need for decorations and almost everything has 2022 on it!
Everyone loves cookies. Create a super cute display of different types of cookies. Don’t forget punny labels like “she’s one smart cookie” to get everyone talking!
I’ve seen this before for wedding receptions but I think it is an even better idea for a graduation party! Have your guests write on notecards their advice for you as you enter a new chapter of your life!
Cupcake towers are so cool! It’s super creative and different then your popular basic sheet cake. Not to mention cupcakes are much easier to pass out than cake slices.
Themed drinks with cute labels
You can be so creative when it comes to drinks! I like the idea of using your school colors for drinks (if you can make a drink from those colors!)
My friend who graduated nursing school had the CUTEST nurse themed drinks including red jello shots in fake syringes! Look online for themed drinks relating to your major!
Everyone loves fondue! You can really be creative and it will get everyone talking at your party! Set up a chocolate or cheese with tons of different snacks to dip in!
Donut walls are so cute and the coolest thing! This is a super fun way to display dessert. I love this one from hooraydays on Etsy!
Tropical graduation theme
I am living for this graduation party theme! The colors and vibes are everything! You just can’t go wrong with a pool party.
Mason jar centerpieces
Mason jars as centerpieces are perfect to use for a rustic theme graduation party. You can totally get creative with whatever you decide to put in them.
This is one of my favorite set ups for a graduation party! I also love the “educated” balloons hanging from the table.
Graduation year balloons
Those large metallic numeric balloons are so popular right now. Get your graduation year in those balloons for a perfect decoration.
Key to success
This is similar to the advice cards I wrote about above. This lets the guests give out their “key to success” to the graduate. This is super unique using the keys.
School picture display
Put together a cute banner or tape to a wall of all your school pictures every year from kindergarten on up. Show everyone how far you’ve come! I love this idea because I love sentimental things.
School customized desserts
If you’re sticking with a school themed party, order desserts like cupcakes and cookies with your school logo and colors. These from The Cookie Fox on Etsy are super cute!
Sports display board
If you were a collegiate athlete, having a table displaying all of your achievements is such a great idea for the graduation party.
Pink themed party
Can’t decide on a party theme? Just pick your favorite color and use that color for everything! I love all the decorations in this photo.
Wrap these cookies in tiny bows to make them look like diplomas! Such a creative idea.
Hanging photos from balloons
This is such a unique decoration idea that I never saw before!
DIY photo display with hola hoop
This is so cute! I really love how they used a hola hoop and used a round photo display rather than the typical square display.
I am so obsessed with these tassel balloons! Definitely a statement decor piece.
