If you'd like to check out our comprehensive graduation party planning guide, click here
1. Select and Send Invitations
Once you know the date and time of the graduation event, you can plan when and where to hold the party and send out invitations. If possible, choose invitations that match the style and theme of your graduation announcements. This extra touch will not only impress guests, but will make also make it easier to arrange the two complementary announcements on the same scrapbooking page as a keepsake.
2. Decorate With the Theme in Mind
Rather than haphazardly throwing together random napkins, tablecloths and other party decorations, choose a color and style theme and find decorations that fit in with your theme. For example, if you choose a sophisticated black and gold color theme for the new graduate, our Splendid Divide
graduation announcements would look great paired with one of our black personalized napkins
decorated in gold print. Gold and black balloons can help tie everything together and complete the festive appearance of your event.
3. Plan Your Menu
No graduation party is complete without at least a few snacks. If you want to minimize your stress for the upcoming event, easy appetizers like pork sliders, chips and dip, and bruschetta are simple to make and require minimal time and stress. If your party falls during lunch or dinner hours, prepare something more substantial but still simple. Sandwiches, taco bars, pizzas and salad bars are all easy options that will keep your guests happy without taking too much of your time.

Customer reviews of our Photo Graduation Announcements & Custom Graduation Invitations
May 11, 2015Very pleased with order
"We received our order today and are very pleased. The photo card paper is thick and sturdy. The color, font, and spacing came out exactly as our preview looked when we ordered. We chose this format to highlight two favorite photos of our graduate. Only thing we would have liked even better with this design is to have had the option to change background color on the middle script area, but that obviously wasn't a deal breaker. If your student tends toward classic and simple (which mine does), this is a great choice. Fast shipping with well packaged product so everything arrived in perfect condition. Great experience!"

"I ordered the rounded edges. High quality, thick paper with a modern and expensive look. We added some writing on the back even though there was a template for just photos. We just uploaded some text as a jpg. Worked great!"

"I ordered two different designs for my graduation invitations and this was my favorite one. It was simple, yet chic and stylish and it met all of my needs. The picture quality was great, they printed beautifully on the paper and the paper itself was great. I was more than pleased with my invitations!"
July 5, 2014Classy Card
"Did not change color and did similar script. Comments from all who received it was how beautiful the pictures were and the announcement was just class. Customer Service was excellent - we had issues dragging and dropping from our computer. Customer Service took over and completed the order for us - they were wonderful. Made sure that the pictures were clear and had us redo one of the pictures because of clarity of the pixels. They wanted us to have a wonderful card too! Thank you!"
