Happy spring! One of the most exciting things about spring is graduation. It’s so fun being able to celebrate with everyone that has worked so hard to earn their tassels.
I teamed up with Evite® and M&M’S® to bring you some fun, easy ideas and free printables to pull off a fabulous graduation party that is all the tassel and none of the hassle.
With light bulbs and tassels galore, the theme of this party is
“Your Future Looks Bright.”
I chose a black, white, and aqua theme because you can easily switch out aqua for any color to suit your needs.
These cute light bulb vases come in different sizes so they worked great as favors, decor, and candy bar containers. I used them everywhere. You can easily fill them with M&M’S®, print and cut the tags, and attach them to the vases using baker’s twine. The vases are available at your local craft store.
Hats and tassels are easy to create and are the perfect decoration for the drinks. My printable version will easily fit on a striped paper straw.
The hats and tassels also look great on gumball tubes.
Photo-booth bookmarks also make the perfect take home favor. You can take some cute film strips of the graduate or let each guest take their own at the party using Evite’s® Photo-Booth App. The photos are easy to glue onto the printable bookmarks.
M&M’S are a great addition to any party especially now that you can customize them to practically anything you can imagine. They make lovely decor and dessert and they are fun to design and create. You should visit M&M’S® website and play around with some of your own designs. It is so entertaining and I love the way mine turned out.
The food for the party consisted of Personalized M&M’S®,
Other random candies, cake, and cake rolls tied with a bow to look like diplomas.
We also had individually wrapped sandwiches and chips.
The art for the party was easy to create. You can use your craft cutting machine to create one like mine by cutting the words out of black vinyl and placing them on a plain, white canvas.
A simple cake topper can be created using your craft cutting machine as well. You can easily cut this from thick card-stock or a pretty glitter paper. Glue dowels to the back and use these to stick it into the cake. The cake topper says “The Tassel is Worth the Hassle.”
You can even include a photograph with your announcement.
