A 5th wedding anniversary and a college graduation?

Our 5th wedding anniversary is May 14th. I'd like to do something more than the dinner, movie and cake that we have been doing. We would also like to include our kids, they are 2 and 5.

My college graduation is May 19th. We will definitely have a party with family and friends. Children will be there. My school colors are yellow and blue, we're a satellite school of LSU. My degree will be a bachelors in cellular and molecular biology with a minor in chemistry so, science nerd stuff is welcome!

I'm allergic to pork and beef and there will be no alcohol.

Share links to websites, pictures or your own ideas.

I am going to rent the clubhouse in my neighborhood for the graduation party. We were going to provide dinner and dessert for our guests.

I think it's kind of weird to throw yourself a graduation party...especially when (I assume) you're married and have a family. When I think of a college graduation party, I think of your parents throwing it for you. And the grad being about 23...

I am 23 and this is a joint effort between my DH, FIL, mom, dad, sister and best friend. They wanted to include me because I enjoy party planning. We are in the brainstorming phase so I just need ideas to throw out there.

DH and I both graduates at the same time and we threw ourselves a party. We didn't expect gifts but just because we were married and had children didn't mean it was any less of an accomplishment to celebrate! (I was 22 btw)

To me, a graduation party is a party celebrating the fact that you're done with schooling and are starting your life. Obviously, if you have a husband and children, you have already started your life...

Yeah, I don't want any gifts. I just wanted to celebrate with my friends and family. I will also be revealing what graduate program I will be going to at the party. My last college graduation was on a weekday so no one was able to go because of school/work. My sister couldn't even go :/.

I was 6 months pregnant at my high school graduation so we went out to eat with family and I went home to sleep lol.

Oh I'm not done with schooling. Graduate school starts in July/August depending on which program I get in. I have an interview for a PhD program next week.

I want to celebrate the transition. I have spent 5 years working on this milestone. I am also the only college grad in my family so this is very important to them.
