5 Great Last-Minute Graduation Party Ideas

It happens to the best of us. You have graduation coming up and think you’ve got plenty of time, but then you get busy so party planning takes a back seat. And then one day you look at the calendar and realize you have no time and need to throw together a graduation party fast!

Well, there’s no need to stress. Let’s go over a few great last-minute graduation party ideas which will make people think you’ve been planning for weeks or months!

1. Combined Parties

One of the first and best ways you might be able to get a graduation party organized fast is to combine with a close friend! They may already have it mostly planned, and while it may feel odd piggy-backing off of their success, you can bring your own style to the party as well a lot quicker if the big ticket items have already been planned. Plus, the other parents will love having fewer party days to choose between!

2. Decor

If you don’t have much time, keep it simple. You might feel pressure to wow your guests with your decor, or even your food, but just take it easy. Use what you have on hand, borrow from friends, or order some light decorations from a local grad party company rather than waiting for shipping from an overseas-based online shop.

3. Invites

If graduation is coming up fast, you probably don’t have time to order custom-made, printed invitations. Sending email invites is a fast alternative to snail mail. Many sites online offer trendy email invitations, many of which are free and customizable. Otherwise create a Facebook event and invite everyone on your friend list!

4. Venue

Where can you host a graduation party quick? The most likely spot is your own home, but if you’re like most people you don’t have enough room. That’s why renting a tent can be a great, quick way to put up a graduation party venue! At Geyer Rental, we have canopies, tents, tables, chairs and anything else you need.

5. Entertainment

Last but not least, consider having some entertainment available for the graduate’s friends and all your guests. Does your grad have any friends in their own band? Let them play a set! Have some old board games in the basement? Pull out your grad’s favorite ones from childhood and place them around for playing.

For a ton of fun, rent an inflatable or backyard game from Geyer Rental! Your guests will be busy playing all night.
