Graduation time is right around the corner, and after years of hard work it’s time to celebrate with your special graduate! If you are hosting a graduation party you’re aware of how quickly celebration costs can rise. However, it’s possible to host a fun graduation party without breaking the bank. Here are a few ideas to keep your graduation party costs down.
Rather than hosting a celebration at a restaurant, consider having the party at your home. If your own home isn’t a good spot for a party ask friends or family that have a larger home or backyard. If you need to have your party off-site look into renting a park with a pavilion and barbeque grills or ask a local church if they rent space. Often time churches have extremely reasonable rental rates.
Ditch traditional decorations and instead display school photos from over the years along with art and other school projects. In addition to paying homage to the graduate, the old pictures will strike up many conversations among the guests. If traditional graduation party decorations are a must for you, check out dollar and discounts stores as they often have a variety of inexpensive decorations.
