June is here, and I can’t believe that I am saying this, but I am now the proud Mom of a high school graduate. I will admit, that I am totally in a state of denial. He can’t possibly be done with high school. Didn’t he just start? But no matter how long or hard I stare at the calendar, the truth is clear. He is officially a high school graduate. My husband and I are so proud of everything he has accomplished in his high school career.
So now that the hard work is over, it was time to have some fun! And what better way to celebrate his accomplishments than with a party with family and friends. My mother-in-law is the master of the menu, so I left all that to her.
I took on the job of decorating, and thanks to the graduation page at The Oriental Trading website, I was able to have a wonderful looking party at a fraction of the cost.
Graduation Party Decorating With The Oriental Trading Company
I wanted to make sure that the party was started even before a guest stepped into the house. So these 2017 Grad Yard Signs were perfect. Even though there isn’t a single blade of grass out front, they made a festive statement.
And the 2017 Glitter Banner and Mortar Board Hanging were a festive touch to the house.
The Graduation Party Swirls finished off the look in the living area.
They were the perfect touch for the inside of the house. When we first planned the party, we thought we would have more people hanging around inside. Despite it being a hot day, most people decided to hang out in the back yard. The great thing was that Oriental Trading had some great decorations for the canopy. We added a few more of the hanging twirled decorations to complete the look.
If you have been a reader of my blog for awhile, you know that my son will be attending The Pennsylvania State University this Summer. The Oriental Trading Company has some great college-themed decorations as well. We decorated the food table with this Penn State tablecloth. We also added the 2017 Foil Graduation Foil Bursts as a fun, festive touch.
No party is complete without the proper serving items as well. The Oriental Trading Company had some great Penn State plates, napkins, and cups that finished off our party decorating.
All in all, it was a wonderful day of celebration for our family. Between the delicious food and time spent with good friends and precious family, I couldn’t have asked for a better event.
So if you have a graduation event coming up, make sure you get all your decorations from the Oriental Trading Company! Then sit back and enjoy your day.
