Graduation season is here, and we have some great ways to help you celebrate your Graduate! Our Party Host Helpers Charlotte Regional Director, Erin, shared a few tips to make your loved one’s graduation party extra special this year!


Slider Bar

Keep everything simple food-wise and have a big buffet table of the graduate’s favorite food items. We recommend doing a slide bar with different combinations such as grilled chicken and pineapple, beef & blue cheese and turkey, bacon and avocado! Add bowls of different toppings and let your guests make their own. Create a cute sign with the combinations. You can even add fun names if you want, such as “Norm the Niner’s Winning Burger” (UNCC’s mascot).

Themed Cookie Bar with Chalkboard Menu

Is your grad one smart cookie? Convey the idea with a charming cookie bar and menu. Offer an assortment of cookies to please an array of taste buds. In case guests don’t get to indulge in the dessert, leave some clear plastic bags or boxes for guests to take some home with them!


Craft a Tissue Paper Party Sign

Bring the graduation year to life with this DIY tissue paper sign. Simple to make and budget-friendly. Consider choosing tissue paper in the graduate’s school colors to bring extra school spirit to the party! All you need to make this is cardboard, scissors, glue and tissue paper! You can either hang them on the wall, prop them on a table or glue to wooden sticks and place in bottles like this photo!

Jenga Guest Book

Invite guests to sign Jenga blocks instead of a traditional guest book. The graduate can take the game, along with the mementos, into their next season of life.

School Photo Wall

A fun way to add humor to the party is by creating a wall of the graduate’s school photos, from first grade to senior year! Let guests see how far he or she has come over the years. If you want to make a game out of it, don’t put the school year on each photo and have people guess on pieces of paper!
