Senior year is coming up quickly! Between senior pictures, last football games, last homecomings and graduation there is so much going on. But what about your grad party? I know you think it’s so far away in the future, but trust me it will come quicker than you think. I want you to think about your grad party for a few reasons. One, making sure you’re organized when you throw a party like that is important. Second, you’ll want to be sure you know what kind of party you want so that you can throw the party you specifically want. And lastly, you have to think of the decor… which is where I come in. Continue on reading to hear all about grad parties and how you can use your senior pictures to make your grad party amazing and unique. Just like you!
1. Throwing a grad party can be so stressful. Food, guest list, decor, thank you notes. All of these can be a lot when you just graduated and when you’re looking forward to your next big adventure. I suggest putting your guest list together early. Maybe over Christmas Break or Spring Break. Then when it comes to May, you’re not scrambling during finals to put your grad party guest list together. Here is another great hack…. At your graduation party, put out a bin of envelopes. Put up a sign that says something like “address your thank you note” and leave a pen. Then, when it comes time for you to write your thank you notes, not only do you not have to write more addresses but you can remember who was there. I’d add in a gorgeous senior picture to your thank you notes as well! Then people have them and you can put your amazing senior pictures to use!
2. Thinking about what kind of party you want to have is important. Do you want a backyard barbecue or are you going to go somewhere and rent an event center? These are both amazing options but lead to very different vibes. No matter what you decide to do for your grad party, like I said before, the decor is what helps create the vibe. The feeling of your grad party starts at your senior pictures believe it or not. Your senior picture should mirror who you are. They should celebrate you- your authentic self. So if you had beautiful outdoor senior pictures in your cute jeans, sneakers and a sweater, I’d assume your grad party will also be casual and laid back. Use your pictures that highlight your beautiful self at your party. If you took pictures that are very glamorous and that is who you are. Let that shine lady! Use your pictures to highlight your true glamorous self at your grad party.
3. Decor at your grad party is one of the best parts of throwing a party. I love finding cute banners, balloons, yard signs… the list could go on and on! But you know, I have to say the best decor you could put up are your beautiful senior pictures. Frame them and use them as table center pieces. Put a stunning picture of you in your cap and gown near your gift table. I even love when people put pictures of them from kindergarten through their senior year. It’s a tasteful and creative way to celebrate your journey but also to put those senior pictures to use. I’d even consider using your pictures on your party invitations. When your guest sees your invitation they’ll know exactly who sent it and it will be beautifully personalized.
Senior pictures are so important but so is your graduation party!! The pictures are taken at the beginning of your senior year, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be put to use at the end. Show them off and be proud of all you accomplished to get to where you are. I love that your senior pictures show off exactly who you are and tells everyone about the kind of person you are- beautiful, smart, confident and ready for anything that comes her way!!
