More Graduation Ideas

There are so many graduation party themes that you can have.  Whether it’s high school, college, kindergarten or medical school, there are endless possiblities to plan a great celebration.

This table could be used in a formal setting in a fun way or it would be great for a kindergarten graduation party.  Just use black paper on the table and outline the guests name to have a chalkboard effect.
