Are you a parent of 2020 graduate and feeling the pressure of hosting a party your teenager will actually enjoy and remember?
Time is short and budgets can be tight. This shouldn’t stop you from avoiding the pitfalls of a painful graduation party.
Include your teen in the planning
The family may be the primary party planner, but don’t forget to include the guest of honor — the graduate. Include your teenager in the discussion about the party details such as when, where and what will happen.
Have you checked out their social media lately? This may help you get some ideas for themes, food, or gifts that they may like.
Choose the Menu
Let's be real the best party of any party, including a graduation party is the food. But you don't want to be tied to the stove or grill for the whole party.
Consider menu where mostly everything can be made ahead of time so that you can take your chef's hat off and enjoy the graduation party with the rest of your guests. Or if you have the budget consider having it catered. A taco bar, BBQ buffet, or ordering from your teen's favorite restaurant may be good choices.
Create a party Atmosphere
This is the perfect time to go beyond just your basic balloons. Check out local businesses that can provide everything you need for decorating. One of the things that Las Vegas is good at is throwing a party and there are a lot of local businesses that will help you throw the perfect party.
Make a selfie station or photo spot

Take Advantage of Social media
Between the selfie station and the hundreds of other pictures taken at the party, make sure everyone can enjoy them later on by creating a hashtag on social media (i.e. Instagram) such as #garrettgraduates. Simply put a few framed signs with the assigned hashtag around the party to remind people to feel free to post and share.
