Graduation Party Ideas
What has a cap and gown and loves ice cream cakes? Graduates! Summer is almost here and that means graduation season is approaching. If you have a graduate in your life that deserves a big celebration, then you need an ice cream cake. We have put together a few of our favorite graduation party ideas for after the ceremony. We partnered with some great bloggers to help you make the most of your party budget while having Instagram-worthy pictures. These graduation party cake ideas featuring simple graduation party decorations are easy to create and will help make your celebration memorable.
Headbands & Sprinkles, Oh My!
Courtney’s Sweets took the Carvel Family Size Ice Cream Cake and personalized it with piping and sprinkles that matched the graduate’s decorations and favorite color—pink! Little grads love to help with sprinkles. For items she needed to purchase, she chose to venture to dollar stores and party stores.
Instead of the traditional graduation cap, spice it up a bit with a crown or a graduation headband that matches your decorations.
Black, White & Gold
Add a little elegance with the right party supplies and a matching Ice Cream Cookie Cake. Pick up a sleek cake stand, gold plasticware and plates and napkins that fit your theme. Celebration Stylist does an impeccable job making disposable dinnerware look sophisticated. Check it out.
Here is a graduation party idea that doesn’t take long at all: DIY tassel plates. These plates are so simple that even someone with no decorative talent can throw them together. Our friends at The Good in the Simple put a fun spin on graduation caps with these colorful tassels. Sprinkles and glitter letter candles made her cake pop.
Simply take ordinary black paper plates under a hole punch to make these easy (and darling) little plates.
