24 Apr

Wondering how to throw a graduation party that is over the top in all the best ways, without basing your theme around a mascot or typical school colors? You can style a party to be as unique as your graduate! If your grad loves all of the girly, glitzy, glam vibes, these party tips are exactly what you need.

Graduation party decor

Set the tone of your glitzy graduation party with gold, glitter and pastels. You can work these in with tassel or pennant banners, twinkly lights and balloons. Florals should be light and pretty, the perfect accent to your feminine and trendy graduation party.

Girly graduation party tables

A tablescape can be as much a part of your graduation party decor as a banner! Style your tables with a glittery table runner, gold accented plates and fun flatware as well. You can even add both a sparkle and a touch of personalization with foil stamped napkin rings made out of our shimmery paper.

Glam up your graduation party drink station

Keep your theme glittering in every detail—this includes your drink station! Serve drinks with custom coasters foil stamped in a color from your glam palette for a stylish touch that guests will adore. You'll, of course, want to add a little extra pizazz with your drink presentation. Check out this DIY glitter ice! Big note, it's not edible but totally makes for a fabulous ice bowl to keep bottled drinks chilled.

Fun graduation party favors

Send guests home with favors that they'll both love and use. What do people love? Donuts. What does your graduate love? Glitter. Edible glitter donuts packaged in custom designed goodie bags will celebrate your graduate in good taste! These won't last long, of course, so maybe you should consider sending something home that holds fun party memories a little bit longer. Customize koozies to keep drinks cool and hands dry while infusing every sip with a bit of color and a unique touch. Then, send them home as a personalized graduation party favor guests will love to use!

Don't forget your Instagrammable moment!

Of course, your entire party will be picture perfect and totally adored by your graduate and guests alike. However, why not add in a splashy moment that is sure to be captured in stories and snapshots?! After all, your grad has worked hard, and it's time to celebrate. Plan a time for sparklers to light up your graduate's journey in her next steps! Create sparkler sleeves and shimmer matches to really make the activity shine bright. Guests can even take the matches home as another favor to remember the smashing time they are sure to have had at your graduation party.
