With graduation just around the corner, I thought I would share an idea for a graduation display board. These boards are super easy! Just round up your favorite photos, old and new, mat them in school colors and add them to your board. (TIP: make color copies of your photos to use on your board) Use some of your very own school memorabilia to make it interesting. Add some great Paper Wizard lazer cut titles along with die-cuts and and pre-made embellishments for a fabulous display. If you are like me (and have a hard time narrowing down the photos) you may need to create several boards!
Display your boards surrounded by framed photos, a cool 7gypsies tray and don’t forget your SCRAPBOOK!
Other ideas (for the over achievers out there)…Paint some clay pots in school colors and fill them with flowers. Add photos of your grad on a “pick”. These are not only the cutest table decorations EVER, but they make great “take-home” gifts for the Grandparents when your celebration is over!
Make cute little cards to identify each of your party foods. These can also go onto a pick and directly into the food, or on small table tents next to the food. Wrap mini candy bars with patterned paper (school colors of course) and your Grad’s name and/or picture, and fill a basket!
Banner flags are all the rage. Why not make your own grad banner. Use cardstock, patterned paper, photos, stickers and embellishments. NOBODY else will have one like it!!! The possibillities are endless. Get creative! There are so many unique things you can make that are WAY cuter than the pre-made things from from the local party store.
Oh, don’t forget to take LOTS of photos. Some ideas for great photos??? Glad you asked!First of all, don’t forget to take pictures of all the creative things you came up with. Take pictures of your grad with each and every relative. (think about the groupings ahead of time and even make a list) Make sure to get lots of random shots. Teenagers do the funniest things and are usually more than willing to pose for pictures when they can be silly. Get some cool “close-ups”…..a yearbook, class ring or table decoration etc.
Once your celebration is over….take a deep breath….and get ready to SCRAP your perfect graduation celebration!
You only have one High School graduation…make it special.
