Posted by

It’s such a joy to see all the graduation photos from family and friends on Facebook. Whether elementary school, high school, or college, graduation is such a milestone in life. Celebrating accomplishments, realizing dreams, and planning for the next phase of life. It is a joyous time and well worthy of celebration.

Graduation party ideas range from dinner at a nice restaurant to a backyard BBQ to a family trip, something the last full family trip for a while as your college grad transitions into full independence.

From elegant to whimsical, for all ages, these are some of the graduation party ideas that hopefully can inspire your upcoming grad event.

The Thinking Closet has a whole party in a box you’ll want to check out. Use one of these ideas or go for them all, but these are very creative and adaptable to all ages.

On the other hand, Diploma Cookies from Love the Day are super simple. Clever with no effort. Now that’s what I’m talkin about!

While this idea from The Wedding Chicks  is shown for an outdoor wedding reception, it works beautifully for a graduation party. Guests share their tips for success in the next phase of life. Or instead of tips for success, you could make it words of wisdom from guests to the grad.
