Even though you may not be able to have a large party with all of your friends and family, there are still ways to include them during this momentous occasion.

For this drive by party you can have the graduate sit in front of their home wearing their cap and gown. Guests can come by and honk the horn and also leave presents. You can also set up a party table for takeaway favors to thank the guests for showing up.

With the right graduation party rentals, you can set up a festive party area where the graduate, and immediate family members can come together in celebration. Be sure to use a lot of decorations to really make it feel special. You can decorate the party by using the grad’s favorite colors or incorporate their school’s mascot and colors. 

A Virtual Party

Virtual parties have become another popular alternative to traditional parties over the last few months. You can send out evites to the graduate’s friends and family members who will be in attendance. There are a variety of services designed to host virtual meetings like Zoom and Skype. Be sure to include login instructions on the invitation so that there is no confusion when the party starts. You can play the Pomp and Circumstance graduation song as the grad shows off their achievement for all the guests to see. Asks guests to send gifts or money to help make the day special for the graduate. 

A Custom Banner 

A  great way to show your graduate that you really care is to present them with a custom banner or yard sign to put in front of the house. You can include a special message along with their graduation photo and their school. Although they may not be able to celebrate in the traditional way this will still give them the opportunity to rejoice in their huge accomplishment. 

Create A Slideshow

You can make it like a montage of all their life’s accomplishments and milestones they have completed. Be sure to include thoughtful messages throughout the video. This will lead up to a photograph of them on their graduation day. You can present this slideshow during their party using Total Entertainment’s inflatable movie screen.
