  • Graduation Party -- Plan a Party for Your Grad!

    A major accomplishment, deserves a really fun celebration -- right? Of course it does, and that is why planning a super special event for your grad, is a fantastic idea! Graduation parties are usually attended by the graduates family and close friends. It can be as big as your budget and venue allows -- but most often a graduation party, tends to be a more intimate affair. This makes it easier for the graduate to enjoy themselves --  and to  greet and thank everyone in attendance. It is their celebration after all -- so you'll want to make sure they really enjoy themselves, and feel very special. So what can you do to ensure the graduation party you are planning goes well? Today, on the Charming Chick blog,  we have some tips to help you as you plan.

     

     

    {Tip #1} Decide on a Budget

     

    This will help keep you in check as you plan the graduation party. A great way to get started, is to make a list of all the things you want to have at the event - get pricing - then decide what you will include. It is always a great idea to consult with the guest of honor as well.  While you might be thinking of a more formal sit down dinner -- your grad might just want an informal BBQ.

     

    {Tip #2} Send Out Invites

     

    You'll want to send the invites out, at least two weeks in advance. This will help to ensure that your guests have plenty of time to RSVP -- and you'll have a good idea of about how many people to expect for the graduation party. If you are looking for a way to save money -- and be eco-friendly at the same time - you can choose to send your invitations through Evite.

     

    {Tip#3} Decorations

     

    The decor for the graduation party is generally graduation themed and pays tribute to the graduate.  You don't need to go overboard by putting together a huge shrine -- but a great idea is to have photos up and scattered throughout the party. Including photos from your grad's school days, events, sporting events, club activities, honors, etc. It is also fun to do a slide show presentation with power point or a movie maker, and you can add graduation songs to it. You can have personalized favors, candies, or even confetti.

    You also might want to get or make a card holder box. Many guests will want to give your graduate a gift and most of the time it is a monetary one, which will help as the embark on the next phase of their life.

      

    {Tip #4} The Food!

      

    If you keep it simple (or have the graduation party catered) then you'll be able to enjoy the festivities as well. If you will be preparing and serving the food, you may want to enlist the help of family and friends. You can make grad's favorite food, have a BBQ, do a baked potato bar or Hawaiian HayStacks, sandwiches, pizza, anything really. Just make sure to keep the cold food cold and the warm foods warm.

    As for dessert, you can do cake if you wish. Ice cream and cake are popular choices but you can do all sorts of things, shaved ice, candy bars, s'mores, root beer floats, milk shakes, etc.

    Enjoy!!!

  • Graduation Gifts for Your High School Graduate

    
    Graduation Cap and Diploma Charm

    It's hard to believe that the end of the school year is fast approaching! That also means it's time to start thinking about Graduation gifts. If you - or someone you know - is a senior in high school, this means moving on to bigger and better things. For most people, high school graduation is the end of an era, and the beginning of their adult life. It is a big change and a huge step in one's life -- this is why it is always a fantastic sentiment, to present the graduate with an extra special keepsake.

     

     

    This beautiful pewter charm makes a fantastic graduation gift. The verse reads: "Dare to dream of your own great success." This is a wonderfully motivating quote - and something they can keep in mind - as they embark on their journey into adulthood. The world is wide open to our graduates. They are in charge of their own destinies, and it is important that they know they be anything they want to be!  They just have to think big, work hard and have passion to obtain their dreams!

     

     

    There might not be a way for you to prepare the graduate in your life, for everything they will encounter in the world -- but this Engraved Multi-Tool Pocket Knife with Flashlight, is sure to come in handy. This handy little tool is crafted of stainless steel and aluminum and features eight tools: a Phillips and flathead screwdriver, knife, bottle opener, pliers, wire cutter, LED flashlight and saw. All of these features and free personalization, create a timeless keepsake that will be treasured for years!

     

     

    This Multi-Strand Ivory Pearl Engraved Bracelet is classic and elegant. It can be presented to the graduate -- either at or right before graduation - as a compliment to any outfit. The bracelet features gorgeous ivory glass pearls - in two different sizes - and a stylish toggle clasp, and a silver charm that can be engraved with an inital.

     

     

    Our Black Leather Engraved Money Clip Wallet is a great graduation gift for him. The slim form of this wallet makes it comfortable to carry. Your graduate will have a safe place to keep all of his important cards, cash and IDs. The best part is, it can be engraved with the graduates initials for a special personalized touch.

    "There's a big world out there. Bigger than prom, bigger than high school -- and it won't matter if you were the prom queen, the quarterback of the football team, or the biggest nerd. Find out who you are, and try not to be afraid of it." ~ Author Unknown
