Looking for 5 high school graduation party memory ideas for you, your kid brother or your (finally legal) soon-to-be-out-of-high-school girlfriend? Feeling lost? Don't sweat it. Below are some tips that will hep you create lasting memories for that special high school graduate in your life.
Celebrate around a theme. Look to what your high school graduate is interested in. They might play sports or perhaps they were part of the journalism club. Maybe they were in the school band. Choose a theme based around these interests. Find decorations at a local party store. Decorate within the theme. Order a specialized cake. For the football player, you can order a cake with a football field on it. Most supermarkets do specialized cake decorating. Pick up or make party favors that revolve around the central idea. You can find individual party favors even at the local dollar store.
- Record the event with a video recorder. By using a video camera, you can tape the party. The graduate will have something to look back on later in his or her life.
- Snap pictures with a digital camera. Digital cameras operate on the same principal as a video recorder except for the fact that you can print out the pictures. Place them in frames after the party and the high school graduate will have memories for the rest of their life.
- Create a memory board. Purchase some poster board. Once the party rolls around, set it up in a centralized area. Place markers, pencils and crayons near the blank poster. Have guests write or draw what they wish to. Each will have an individual memory of the graduate. You can even place some your digital pictures around the board. After the party, your graduate will have fun looking back over the board.
Put together a scrapbook. Creating a scrapbook is a fun way to express memories that will last year after year. Go to a craft store or super center and pick up a scrapbook album. Either purchase a blank album or one that centers around the theme for your graduation party. If you get a blank album, decorate the cover using stickers, stamps and colorful paper. On the inside, place pictures along with stickers. You can write messages and draw pictures. The fun thing about a scrapbook is that anything goes. Use your imagine.
