You’re a Star Graduation Party

Yesterday my kids informed me that there are only 20 days of school left.  Which means that graduation season is here and with that comes lots of graduation celebrations.  I teamed up with Oriental Trading and created a star-studded graduation party theme and dessert table that is perfect for your graduation celebrations So whether you are celebrating your cute little kindergarten graduate or your all grown-up high school graduate, this You’re a Star graduation party is full of inspiration and ideas to help you honor your special scholar.

One of the things I truly love about hosting parties is the opportunity to make the occasion or person feel extra special.  I believe that life should not only be lived it should be celebrated, which is why I love entertaining friends and families.  When you take the time to plan out a few themed decorations, party games or signature drinks you are helping create special memories that will last a lifetime, long after the celebration has come and gone.

Graduation is one of those milestone events that deserves to be celebrated.  Just think of all the hard work, dedication and hours that have gone into getting to this point.  I loved the idea of using stars as my inspiration for this black and gold graduation party.  There are so many different ways you can incorporate stars into your celebration, a few ideas include: “Reach for the Stars”, “You’re a Star” and “All-Star”, to name just a few.

Head over to the Oriental Trading Fun365 website to see how I used shimmery metallics, tassel banners and mortar board decorations to create a dazzling dessert table.

In addition to the table display I also created fun graduation cap party favors, with free printable tags, that can be handed out to guest.  I think these would be especially fun for your preschool or kindergarten graduate.
