My son will be graduating in May from high school and I am wondering if anyone has any graduation party tips?

Our daughter graduated in June of last year, and we had a family party at our local chinese restaurant. I reserved their party room months in advance (its free!). They offer a buffet for about 4.00 a person, and we had 18 there, so it was cost effective, and they set up and cleaned up!
I purchased items from www.orientaltrading.com... graduation mints, an autograph dog that everyone signed, and little bubble jars that had caps and tassels on them. I made her a scrapbook of items from kindergarten till graduation (we had the party the day after graduation, so I was working on the last page the night before the party!) and had pictures of her from Kindergarten till 12th grade. We decorated with graduation balloons as well. She was surprised and thrilled! (03/12/2006)
At my niece's HS graduation party, my sister in law, among other things, had disposable cameras on each table and encouraged the guests to take pictures of ea other. I thought that was a nice idea. The party was held outside in a backyard. Food however was set up in the kitchen buffet style. Most everything was homemade altho I believe they ordered Italian beef and fried chicken. (03/14/2006)
We home-school our boys and in 2004 our oldest son graduated from high school. His graduation was held at our church. He was the only graduate, but he asked that the graduates in our church join him as honorees at his party which we held in the church fellowship hall after his graduation. His graduation ceremony was so moving. Our pastor had church as usual but our family was the center on his sermon and the entire service. GOD was really the center. He used us as living examples. The entire church was invited, and all showed up to congratulate and support our son. It was a wonderful celebration! For his party I served lots of different finger foods. A huge Cake. Assorted drinks: coffee, sodas, Punch,and bottled water. We had veggie trays with dip, a large fruit bowl, nuts & mints. We plan on celebrating our younger son's graduation the same way. (03/14/2006)
If you have a fence and you are going to have it outside you could put little paper graduation caps on top of the fence posts. And little rolled up diplomas with ribbons around them on the side of the fence underneath the hats. (06/25/2006)
