Memory Jar

You’ve probably invited a long list of friends, family, and neighbors to your child’s graduation party. With so many people attending, there’s a good chance that not everyone will get quality face-to-face time with the graduate. Parties like these can feel like a blur. If you set down some blank cards, pens, and a jar near the festivities. Guests can write a thoughtful message to the grad whenever they like. After the party, you can collect the cards into a scrapbook so that your child has a priceless souvenir of this monumental occasion.

Photo Booth

Everyone loves a classic photo booth. It’s the perfect way to commemorate a special night. If you’re hosting a graduation party, it’s easy to build a DIY photo booth in your home. With a foam core board and an X-Acto knife, you’re on your way. You can cut the board into a Polaroid photo shape and hang it from the ceiling or a tree branch. Place some disposable cameras and funny props (hats, sunglasses, fake mustaches, etc.) nearby. Watch as your guests flock to the photo booth. By the end of the night, you’ll have a series of joyful snapshots from the party, featuring all of your closest friends and family!

Graduation Cap Pops

If you’re looking for a delicious treat to liven up your graduate’s party, try making some graduation cap pops! With some peanut butter cups, a chocolate bar, Sour Patch straws, and Mini M&Ms, you can quickly put together a confection that looks just like a mortarboard and tassel. By melting some chocolate bark in the microwave for 30 seconds, you’ll have a tasty adhesive. You can use it to assemble your chocolate cap. We recommend using lollipop sticks to place the pops on a decorative foam brick for your guests to enjoy. This adorable dessert is easy to make, and it’s much more fun than your typical party snack.
