Do you need some tips to make your outdoor graduation party a success? We can help! Here are some ideas and tips to make your party a memorable time for the new graduates and their guests!

  • Directing Guests: One nice way to direct guests and welcome them to your home is by using yard signs. These signs can be easily purchased at home store (like Home Depot or Lowes), they can be ordered for custom printing, or you can make them yourself! If you want to make the yard signs sentimental, put pictures of your graduate on them; these photos can be of them growing up or of current photos. Other ideas to direct your guests may include: balloons along the path, chalk arrows drawn on the ground, or even flowers forming a path. *Just be sure to use small metal or wooden stakes in the ground as opposed to trying to hammer in giant items into your lawn’s soil; also, be sure to pick up anything covering your grass immediately after the party. Leaving your grass covered even for a day may damage it or cause discoloration from the rest of the yard.
  • Outdoor Lawn Games: You graduate probably would like to do a little more than stand around with guests at his/her party, so adding some lawn games is a perfect solution! Try some of these lawn game ideas (depending on space): cornhole (bean bag toss), giant jenga, disc golf, ladder toss, croquet, badminton, etc.
  • Photo Booth: Set up a modern photo booth in a corner of your yard for some extra fun. Add some silly props (hats, costume props, fake mustaches, little signs with sayings, etc.) and you can even put a small chalkboard or dry erase board out for guests to write personalized messages on for the pictures. When setting up the photo booth, designate a hashtag (#) for guests to use when posting their pictures on social media, so the grad can easily look at all of the photobooth fun!
