Celebrating Their Accomplishments

Graduation Day is a wonderful opportunity to show how proud you are of your student. But between planning a party and making sure you get the perfect picture at the ceremony, things can get overwhelming. Here are a few ideas to help you make this day unforgettable for everyone:

  • Plan a special party. This is a momentous occasion, and, whether you prefer a small or large gathering, it’s time to surround your graduate with the people he or she loves. Use a detailed party planning guide and checklist to help keep track of everything.
  • Choose a theme. Make your celebration a reflection of your student’s unique personality. Browse Pinterest, Etsy, or Party City to find great ideas for decorations, games, and treats.
  • Surprise them. Give a heartfelt speech that lets them know how proud you are and recalls the triumphs or challenges they’ve overcome.

Make memories. Create a custom hashtag so that guests can curate unforgettable moments on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. You can also use a resource like Jostens®, Snapfish, or Herff Jones to make a special photo album or order a class ring.

    I plan on making a calendar with pictures of my daughter’s friends and families through Snapfish. That way, she can have a part of home go with her.
