Your little one, who is clearly not little anymore, is graduating and of course this needs to be announced and made a celebration with a graduation party invitation or card! If you are looking for inspiration ideas for the invitations keep reading as we run you through a few of them below.
Probably one of the cutest graduation invitation ideas around, there’s no better way to announce your child’s graduation than by featuring a wise ol’ owl as part of the party invitation design? An owl becomes symbolic of wisdom and knowledge gained through out the hard years of study in school and of course a better reason to toast to.
Party inspiration ideas can include little owl cut outs hanging from the ceiling and even graduation hats given to guests that walk in.
If you are looking for something loud and dynamic, then be sure to include a picture of your son’s or daughter’s graduating class on the party invitation. If the party is bound to have more of your child’s friends, then this is an ideal way to kickstart the occasion.
Another great idea could be to have a photo booth at the party so the graduation picture could be recaptured in a different setting! This kind of party offers more freedom to play around with as it is more informal and includes a younger group of people. So be sure that there are ample games organised, movies loaded or pre-ordered and lots of food and music floating around to create a memorable evening.
The classic graduation invitation would include the subtle colour combo of black, white or even gold. If the party you are hosting is more formal with sit down à la carte dinner, then it’s best that the classic and more formal and bold colours are chosen for the graduation invitations.
Keep in mind that each of the invitations chosen also become ambassadors for the rest of the party decorations, favours (if any!) and themes that will be included in the celebrations.
Since in most cases, except when the class picture is included, the graduation invitations can be printed beforehand and distributed among your guests leaving you ample time for party planning, organising and thinking of ways to create an evening filled with memories.
