Planning a High Scool Graduation Party

It is estimated that about 3.7 million high school students are expected to graduate in the year 2020. Now that it is January, graduation season is only a few short months away. Get a jump on this year’s festivities by planning your grad’s party early. If you wait too long, the venues, entertainment, and planning services may be fully booked!

Whether you will be renting a venue to host your bash or will be throwing the party at your home, there are plenty of rental options to add to the excitement. Obstacle courses, carnival games, karaoke systems, and photo booths are some of our favorite graduation party accessories.

If you are looking to cut costs, you can host a joint party for another graduate and ask their family to chip in on the venue, and food. A joint party is perfect for a pair of best friends. This may be their last chance to spend time together before they go off to college or start working.

Here are a few other helpful items to help make your grad’s party one they will always remember:


Be sure to fully decorate your party venue, to set the tone for the event. You can use a variety of balloons, photos, streamers, and other graduation themed decorations. Choose decoration colors that match your graduate’s school colors.


The perfect way to get your whole crowd in the party mood – a karaoke jukebox! Not only does karaoke offer everyone a chance to take center stage at your celebration, but it is also an activity sure to bring a lot of laughs.

Inflatable Obstacle Course

Teens and adults alike will love crawling, jumping, climbing and sliding their way through inflatable obstacle courses like the Aqua Extreme Obstacle Course (pictured left). The perfect way to cool off from the summer heat while enjoying some friendly competition, this water slide obstacle course is just one of many incredible options for a teen’s graduation party.

Photo Booth

Nowadays every great party has a photo booth, and why should your high schooler’s graduation party be any different? The end of an era, your graduation party is the perfect time to take pictures with friends – laughing, goofing around and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Carnival Games

Whether your high school graduate and their friends are taking turns in the dunk tank or testing how fast they can throw their pitches with the Radar Speed Pitch, carnival games will surely add to the excitement of your celebration.
