Graduation Party Theme
With so many graduation parties happening this time of year, you want yours to really stand out! Pick a theme that will inspire your guests to be excited to attend, and to ultimately relax and have a blast! One fun throwback graduation party idea is to feature the decade that your guest of honor was born in! 90s parties are definitely trending right on time for your college grads. Not ready to go with such a specific theme? Try a yard games party, complete with cornhole, boccé and even large scale Connect Four or Jenga. Either way, put costumes, games and décor supplies on your graduation party checklist!
