A festive photo booth gives each guest a chance to take pictures with the happy honoree. Print the school name and year onto oversized retractable banners for an affordable and durable backdrop.


Background Music

Ask the grad to put together a playlist of his or her favorite songs from the past few years. They’ll love creating a soundtrack of their time in school, and the music will add both energy and personality to the party.


Rent a Food Truck

Free up your time to enjoy the festivities by letting professionals care of the food. Hire a food truck or two to serve the guests and minimize clean-up. Although it may take a little extra effort, a graduation dessert bar filled with bite-size treats is sure to impress attendees as well.
