Tags + Gifts
First up for the graduation party ideas are these tags. From gift tags to favor tags, you’ll find ideas below. Each of our tags are also available to purchase in our shop here, or you can find the links to them below the photos.
This bright future tag is perfect for attaching to a light bulb full of money. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Find it here.
I love seeing ring pop candy used as “class rings” and that inspired this design below.
Give the graduate a college survival kit with this tag attached.
If your graduate loves to read then this printable bookmark is for them.
Create gifts for the graduate to open later. Have them open them when they’re sad, or angry, or miss home. It’s perfect for the grad going off to college.
Next up is signs. Whether you need a sign for the guest book, a motivational quote, or maybe just a “class of” sign, you’ll find that here. If you’re not into DIY, then you can order prints of these signs from our shop here.
I love this quote for graduation, I feel like it’s just a perfect fit.
If your grad is “one smart cookie” then have a cookie bar at the party. Everyone loves cookies.
This is definitely a unique idea for a guest book. Have the guests sign a puzzle piece then put it together after the party. You can find blank puzzle pieces here.
Another great way to decorate for the party by labeling the food. Most people are coming to the party for the food, right? Oh, they’re there for the grad? Okay, sure. Regardless, give your food some flair. Find the printed versions of these designs our shop here.
This sticker below was design to go on the bottom of a Hershey kiss, but you could stick it anywhere!
This cupcake topper can be cut out and attached to just about anything, not just cupcakes.
Another easy cupcake topper is this diploma-shaped one.
This next design is for your straws. Attach little flags to make them festive.
This next category is a great way to spruce up any party. If you like games, then this is the section for you. We’ve got advice cards, who knows the grad and BINGO. All games can be found in our shop here as well.
Lastly in the games section, give your guests something to do while everyone’s chatting and hanging around. Let them find all the items on the BINGO card.
Coming up next is everyone’s favorite party supply: photo props. I absolutely love photo booths and so I made heaps of props below that you can print out and use at your own party.
These first few props are all about who is “most likely to…”
This photo frame is perfect for group photos with friends and family.
Who was the class clown in your high school? Or the prom queen? These next few props are all about that idea.
The last photo prop is these fun glasses. Sure to please anyone.
Another way to decorate for the party that makes great photos is to have banners around. We’ve got a few below.
You know all those embarrassing (er… I mean awesome) photos you took growing up. Show them off at the grad party.
Finally, this last category is for those of you looking for fun cards for the grad. Give them something fun and honest that they’ll actually want. Purchase prints of the cards and other items here.
Since we’re done with the freebies and the graduation party ideas. Let’s discuss supplies. If you want to DIY some of the ideas above, here’s a few things you might need.
Another item you can find at Oriental Trading is blank puzzle pieces. If you plan to do the guest book puzzle piece then this is a great option for these.
While shopping on Oriental Trading, I also found these great bubble props. They are dry erase so you can write anything you want on them!
If you like the bright future tag above and want to fill your own light bulb, you can find the jars at Hobby Lobby.
If you like the designs above, and you want to make matching items on your own, here’s a few fonts I used you might want match.
