Theming Thursday: Graduation Party and Gifts
Since it's the beginning of May now, I know a lot of people are probably getting ready to graduate! Whether you are planning a party or just need a gift idea, I hope you find something to use below.
free printables from Printabelle. If you are planning a graduation party, these would be great as there are circles, thank you notes, a banner, an invitation, etc. that you can print off and use!
free printables for a graduation party. This was for back in 2012, but not every printable has the date so you can always use some of these items as well!
Needle in a Haystack shares how you can turn these Jones soda bottles into a really cute graduation gift. You get the bottles that match a school cover and then follow her directions for the little hats and even how to decorate the carrier if you wish! I think these would make great gifts, but they would also work well for a party (especially if you aren't inviting a lot of people since Jones can get expensive).
I found this photo through pinterest, but it didn't lead anywhere so I don't have a source (I do not own this photo though- just using it to share the idea!). At any rate, I think this would be really cute to have out at a Graduation party. You get a jar and decorate it to say Wishes and Wisdom and then direct people (with a sign, etc.) to leave the grad some fun messages. Lay out colored paper and some pens to write with, and voila! Your grad will have a lovely gift to keep after the party.
The Entertaining Shoppe and you can get this handcrafted jar for $32. However, it would be easy to make your own jar (like the Wishes and Wisdom jar). I like both ideas, but I think my favorite is this Memory Jar because it would be really fun to see what all the guests write!
you "rock"! after completing "mounds" of homework and "piecing" together all of your knowledge, you've finally hit "payday": graduation! as you head off to college, don't listen to any "snickers": you're no "dum dum"! you are one "hot tamale" on your "way" to making "100 grand"! congratulations on your graduation "smartie"!
