Tips To Help You Plan A Successful Graduation Party For Your Kid


You have a kid in his or her senior year of high school, which is so exciting for everyone! Are you planning on going big for the graduation celebration? If so, it's never too early to start planning the event. Here, you'll find a few ideas that may spark some inspiration and get the planning process on the roll.

Order Custom Shirts

Your entire family can show off the pride that you feel by sporting custom t-shirts. You can get anything you could want on the shirt—one example of a great graduation design is to include a baby picture on the front of the shirt with a birthdate and his or her senior picture on the back with the graduation date.

If you'd prefer to keep it simple and order shirts that your family will be able to wear to multiple family celebrations, you can just create a family hashtag ( #Parkerfamily, for example). Then as you're using social media to keep everyone informed about upcoming events, you can use the family hashtag to get everyone's attention.

Book a Hall Early

There will be lots of people trying to book the local halls and other celebration rentals just before or just after graduation. If you begin planning the graduation party long before your kid actually graduates, you'll have first pick of all of the halls in the area.

Talk with Family

If you have other family members that have kids that are graduating this year, make sure that you talk over the dates that you're both considering. One of the hardest things for families is when two members plan to host parties on the same date. This can cause family divisions if someone decides to go to one party but not the other.

Work together to find dates that will work for everyone. Yes, this can complicate the process, but it will be time well-spent when everyone gets to attend both parties.

Tip: You can always combine the graduation parties and split the costs. Chances are that you share many of the same friends and family, and hosting one party might make it easier for everyone to gather to celebrate together.

Start working to plan the best graduation celebration possible. This is a huge accomplishment that marks the start of the next step in life. You can make this happen, and it can be great! Have fun during the planning process and take lots of pictures the day of the event. You'll look back on this day for years to come.

Accessories Complete Your Outfit

Hi. My name is Candy Lewis. I’m a stay at home mom in my mid-thirties. Taking care of my children and our home can wear me down. Sometimes I’m exhausted to the point of not caring what I look like when I leave the house. However, when I do have the time to put an outfit together, I depend heavily on accessories to complete the look. I have learned that I can have an ordinary sweater on but when adding a necklace it turns into an extraordinary look. Jewelry, handbags, belts, shoes and hats can all finish off an outfit. I’m happy to share some of my accessorizing tips with you. Some are very simple. I feel ten years younger when I take a cute little over the shoulder handbag and sling it over my head and shoulder. I hope you find my tips to be of interest!
