Hi peeps! How’s your day? If you are planning to have a graduation party on budget, you are absolutely at the right place. A mom named Tammi will gather all of her information on graduation party planning. Some of these suggestions are hers. Plus here, I’m gonna share you Free Red Hibiscus Invitation Templates to make it easier on budget.
Can’t wait to know how Tammi held the graduation party for her son? Here we go!
Graduation party decoration
I’m sewing some party decorations out of scraps, such as fabric banners, and we’re borrowing an old suitcase to hold the cards.
You can also get a card box at a reasonable price. Pinterest contains all of the ideas you’ll ever need.
I’m also going to borrow an old window to show all of my son’s senior pictures. Everyone should have a look at this lovely image!
I had a helium tank remaining from my daughter-in-baby-in- law’s shower, so I ordered the balloons to be inflated. One tank, two parties. All of the paper products and dinnerware were ordered along with balloons.
I’ll also put up a college-related display so people can see where he’ll be going in the autumn.
I ordered a large banner for the front lawn for roughly $20 from banners dot com congratulating my kid and the rest of the class. He’s quiet and reserved, and he doesn’t appear to like this role. I believe, though, that he will persevere and succeed.
Here’s my best money-saving advice. Tables, chairs, and tents can all be rented from a variety of firms and groups.
Before you do anything else, I recommend checking with friends, relatives, and neighbors to see if you may borrow from them. I believe that everyone should have at least one EZ Up tent.
We have a large white one (10 x 30) that will be taken down and erected. However, if the weather is bad, we’ll borrow a few 10 × 10 and 12 x 12 sheets for extra protection.
After my elderly neighbors moved out, they left us ten old heavy tables. They’re ancient and a touch worn, but a tablecloth can make them look brand new.
Chairs were my sole worry. We have a lot of them for outdoor seating, but I was worried there wouldn’t be enough people to dine at the tables. As a result, I requested that guests bring their own chairs in our invitation supplement.
Graduation party supplies
You can order any of them in a variety of colors to match your picnic’s theme! Red, white, and blue are also available for your American festivities, as well as authentic American Flag themes.
All of this was purchased on the internet. I set aside $100 for this and other decorations. On Amazon, I discovered miniature cake plates, dinner plates, mugs, and plastic dinnerware.
The plastic tablecloths, on the other hand, were acquired from the Dollar Tree because it was the best value.
Don’t forget the meat and salad serving utensils!!
Our high school’s colors are orange and black, which is one of the best aspects of it. For the food tables, I was able to get some wonderful orange and black vinyl tablecloths on cheap after Halloween.
Amazon has all of the paper items you could ever need in any color you can think of. Although you may have party supply businesses like The Paper City, the nearest one to our home is 45 minutes away.
Where Can I Find Invitations?
Purchase them and write them on your own.
This is what I’d call “old school.” Purchase a generic (but attractive) graduation invitation and hand write it. It’s fairly simple and basic, although it takes a little time.
I don’t believe this is the most cost-effective option. These cost about $.31 cents each. However, the time it would take to complete them all should be factored into the price.
You Can Make Your Own Cards
Printing your own cards at home could be a cost-effective option to get exactly what you want.
Although printer ink isn’t cheap, and buying blank invites and envelopes will add to the expense, if you’re set on a particular style and already have a lot of tools in your craft room, you might be able to get away with it.
Place an order with an online printer
Vistaprint or Simply to Impress are two online printers that will print your invites. These are high-quality printers that cost around.77 apiece.
You can order some photo cards
This is the path that I took. I was considering Shutterfly for $1 a piece at first, but Tammi suggested Walmart.
She knows I’m not a Walmart fan, but she encouraged me to think about it because you can order online, pick them up, and they’re ridiculously inexpensive compared to everything else I looked at!
It’s a win/win situation at.33 apiece (including envelopes). Although the fill-in invites are less expensive, these have already been completed for you. Simply add the addresses and stamps, and mail!
How much fun would it be to dress up your family in Americana outfits, take a picture, and have it printed? It’s just adorable!
Information to Complement
Because the photo card I got wasn’t big enough for everything I wanted to offer, I’m including a printed card with more information.
This is the place to do it if you have a pool and want people to bring their swimsuits and towels, or if, like us, you want them to bring their chairs. This addition to the envelope could possibly include directions to the party.
Create an event on Facebook
Go right to Facebook and skip all the formalities. Many people are already there, so you might save time and money by hosting an event and inviting everyone there!
