Which type of party planner are you::

A – Started gathering ideas last May

B -WHAT! I need to plan a party?

C – UHHHHH, I have some ideas…

Well, I’ve been helping my Senior Mom’s over the year’s prep for this BIG EVENT and last year I decided to sit down and create a checklist. It’s their final high school memory, so why not make it a EPIC one!? If you’re on my Sparkle Newsletter you would have received this in the January mailing. Or if you’re a junior Mama, get on that list now so you don’t miss the full checklist.

You are in the last few weeks of senior year and putting the finishing touches on graduation. The cap & gown have arrived, or should be any time now. You’ve ordered the graduation cards. And you’ve made the 2-page “honey-do” list for your hubby to get done before the party…Right?

What else?

Here are a few ideas::

3-4 Weeks From Party::

  • Mail graduation cards {“regrets only” RSVP is easier for both sides}
  • Order the cake/cupcakes
  • Going to have a photo booth? Make a space that’s either inside or in garage
  • Create or buy a gift box for cards. My Pinterest Board?has cute ideas if you’re crafty
  • Buy your party outfit {for you + your Grad}

1-2 Weeks From Party::

  • Order flowers
  • Make sure your camera battery is charged and SD cards are ready {if you’re taking photos yourself}
  • Shop for last minute supplies {beverages, large trash bins, trash bags, games…}
  • If you’re not having it catered, do you have all the kitchen supplies {crock pots, coolers, bottle openers, utensils…}
  • Confirm the delivery times of rental equipment
  • Confirm the time frame with your photographer
  • Wrap gifts for Grad + their friends
  • Mention your expectations to your Grad for greeting guests

These are just a few of the last minute points to think about. In my Graduation Party Planner I start 6-months back to help you avoid the panic of forgetting something.

Senior Mom’s, if you know a junior Mama who would be thrilled to get ahead of the rush, BE THEIR HERO and send this post to them {they’ll thank you next May}.
