I am planning my DD's graduation party. Got any suggestions?

About anything. Food, music, drinks, invites, anything.

Things that worked for you or flopped for you.

  • Figure out what you can afford to eat (a list of several choices) and then let your DD chose what she likes. Decorate with alot of fun colors (like purple or teal or pink) instead of traditional decorations (like black and silver). Let her pick out the invites she likes.

  • Is this high school? I have a dd graduating too. I have no idea what to do so I look forward to the responses you get here.

  • I think a family BBQ would be nice as most families when their children graduate like to have little get togethers.

  • We have no family here. She has Grad night, but I too, want to do something special for her. I know her friend who graduated last year rented a room at an Italian Restaurant and they had all their friends there. A bit pricey though for my wallet. My kid doesnt even have a car yet, so that has top priority over everything else. I was thinking of maybe a nice dinner with the family at her fav restaurant.

  • Well there are several things to take into account. I'd say pick something like what the 'colors' of the party, then coordinate the plates, balloons, whatever else you need to decorate. Major issues would be refrigeration as well as timing, because there will most likely be several other parties scheduled right after graduation,number of people expected & weather if it is an outdoor function. But the most important is timing, it was an absolute nightmare to work out which parties to attend & which to miss, so the week was much more stressful than it needed to be for my graduation.

  • We just did a big family cookout at the house.

  • Yes, high school. I have some ideas. My DD and niece are both graduating so we are having a combine party. We will be at a park with a pavilion.
