College Graduation Party Ideas

I am planning to throw my mother a surprise graduation party. She will be graduating from Wake Forest University. We would like to use the school's colors black and gold to decorate. We have rented a recreation center. Does anyone have any decorating tips using those colors?

You could make a balloon arch with gold and black balloons. balloons also look great when tied together into garlands, columns and shapes!

Also, using gossamer in many ways - making swags, adding bows to chairs, etc. Can be made to look casual or very elegant, depending on your party!

What really looks great with black and gold is white twinkle (Christmas) lights. add these around the food and gift tables. Really dramatic effect.

Use black tableclothes and then add gold skirting. Use clusters of black and gold balloons for the centerpieces.
