A graduation party is a fun way to celebrate the end of school/college and bringing together all your classmates under one roof, for perhaps the last time! To make the party a success, there are a number of things that need to be perfect, right from food, music, games and activities to the décor at the party venue.
Speaking of party décor, if you are planning to have a sit-down formal affair, your table decorations should be very uniquely designed as they will remain right in front of your invitees, throughout the party!
Graduation Party Table Decoration Ideas
Since it's a graduation party, in order to reaffirm your relationship with the institution that you are leaving, you can have its logo printed on the napkins and the tablecloth. Another idea is to choose tablecloths and napkins in your school colors! This is an interesting way to show your affinity to your school, at your graduation party!
If you are the sentimental sorts, get hold of a few pictures in which you and your school friends are together or pictures which mark some special days and events in your school life.
Get these photographs framed and put them on display at various tables. Your guests will have an interesting time finding themselves in the photographs and figuring out the occasions on which these photographs were taken!
For instance, you can stack up books of different sizes, one on top of another and finally, keep a vintage globe on them! Or, you can keep three large-sized books in a standing position, place two wine glasses in between them, with a bouquet on top to finish the look!
Some of the quotes that you can write are: "Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" by R.W. Emerson, "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." by Henry David Thoreau.
"If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it." by William Arthur Ward. If you search the Internet, you will find plenty of such inspirational quotes for graduating seniors.
So, if you are a sports junkie, keep baseballs or small replicas of soccer balls on the table. If there is a specific rock band that you like, make a small collage of their pictures and keep on each table. If you are going to college in a new city, you can give the invitees a prelude to your life thereby putting up pictures of the same on the table!
As you can see, there is no dearth of ideas for decorating tables at your graduation party. If you want the table décor to look unique and interesting, think out of the box! At the same time, add your school colors and logo as well as some things that define you, to add that personal touch!
