If you’ve been here a while you know that I am a very proud auntie and godmommy. This year, I have a niece graduating high school and a nephew graduating middle school. You know that I am ready for graduation season. Graduation season can get expensive though, so I’m here with a few ideas on how to keep costs down. Trust me, there are better places to spend the money than on those $300 balloon arches!
Box O Party Graduation Party In A Box – Seriously, this is a party in a box. It comes with everything you need to have a basic party at home. And if you’re looking for more than basic, then use this as your starting point because for under $20 you are getting everything you need. It comes with cups, plates, photo props, a centerpiece, and more.
Balloon Pump – Trust me. You will not want to be blowing up all the balloons for your graduate’s party. You also won’t want to pay professional balloon prices. If you do though, I can offer a few recommendations. My first one though is to order some balloons off of Amazon and check out Youtube videos on how to decorate with them.
Autograph Sign – Someone will forget to bring a card. Your graduate will rarely reread a card. This stands out. It becomes a living memory. And it can be kept as a reminder of the perfect party.
Fitted Table Cloth – These make a table go from looking basic to sophisticated in no time. They’re available in multiple colors so I’m sure you will find one to match your party colors.
I know that social media tells us that we’re supposed to spend a year of college tuition on graduation celebrations but let’s be real, that don’t need to happen. If you have it to spend, cool. Most of us don’t. That doesn’t mean that our graduates shouldn’t feel loved, supported, and celebrated. It only means that we owe it to them to celebrate them responsibly. It’s also the chance to give them a life lesson. You can often make something look like a million dollars without actually spending a million dollars. Also, with all of the money that you’re saving, you can put some of it in an envelope and hand it over to the graduate because elementary school, middle school, high school, or college, they all gonna love getting some cash!
