Are you planning the ultimate graduation celebration for your graduate? Are you going to let social distancing hold you back from screaming to the world how proud you are of your son or daughter? This is the time to make a statement that you will not be silenced. Let’s start to celebrate!!!!
The first thing is let’s look into our creative bag of tricks and find some elements that can work for this situation. My advice is let’s decorate. Decide on the theme ( school colors, career goals, favorite hobby) or whatever fits the personality of the graduate. Next get some signage (posters, banners, yard signs), balloons, t-shirts, flags, and more to let the world know how excited you are.
Do not limit the celebration to a day. Consider making it a week or month long celebration. Instead of having everyone drive by in their cars all at once, send out electronic invites to give family and friends certain times and days to come by and celebrate your graduate. Have your guests bring pompoms, personalized signage, a bullhorn if needed to show their love.
Now here are some places to consider for purchasing items. Target, Walmart, Dollar Store, local supermarkets have graduation items in store. Also checkout online sites such as Oriental Trading, Shindigz, Party City, Michaels, and Joann Fabric. *Note: Michaels, Party City and Joann Fabric are doing curbside pickup if your items are available in your local store.
This situation will not last for a lifetime. The restrictions will be lifted and you can plan a party for a future date. This will also give you time to save money for the big celebration.
