Your Grad Party Checklist | Senior Photography
Senior’s want a grad party to remember! You want family + friends to come relax and hang-out one last time before Summer fun and college prep begin.
But you also want it to be a stress-free experience…you have a ton of things to juggle when senior year is ending.
That’s where I come in. I have some simple ideas to make your party planning a little easier, and if you have an upcoming senior I have your GRAD PARTY PLANNER download to start helping for next year.
Create a Theme:: This doesn’t need to be complicated, but a theme can help things be cohesive and really pull your ideas together. I love simple color themes, and you can even use the colors of your high school, or your soon-to-be college home. If you’re heading to nursing school, or planning to play a certain sport, those are good themes too. Also tells guests what’s coming up in your next chapter.
Plan a Photo Booth:: I love this idea because it not only gives your guests something fun to do, it also helps you remember who was at your party + preserves your memories. You can set up a simple backdrop with something you purchase (lots of ideas on Etsy + Pinterest), or you can make it even easier by having someone come in and set up a Photo Booth your guests will love. If you don’t hire a photographer, be sure to ask a family member to take photos for you.
I’ve said it a 1,000 times… you don’t get this moment back so make sure you capture the memories!
Create a ‘Words of Wisdom’ jar with pieces of paper + pens for guests to share or have it magazine style, which SMP creates for you. Compact & easy to take with you, no matter where your party is!
Decide if you want an OPEN-HOUSE or a PARTY:: With so many graduation parties happening this time of year, having an open-house style opens the doors to allow guests to party hop and make an appearance at more than one. A party is a set time and usually discourages drop-ins. Depending on when you have your event, consider one or the other.
Going beyond snapping pictures, I’m here to make you senior experience more fun + a memory that shines FOREVER!
