2021 Graduation in Las Vegas
Graduation from any level of education is an event to celebrate and enjoy with family and friends, and it’s more important than ever to honor your graduate. Graduation is more than just one day or party — it’s honoring a graduate’s years of hard work and dedication. However, we’re currently living in unprecedented and unpredictable times due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Although it’s impossible to say what will happen in the next few months, it’s likely that many plans, including graduation ceremonies and celebrations, will have to be postponed or changed.
There are many proactive steps you can take to have a fun (and safe) graduation celebration. Read on for ideas on how to still celebrate such a big milestone.
COVID-19 does not mean you have to immediately cancel your graduation party and any other celebrations associated with this momentous occasion. You can still plan a grad party, give or receive cards and personalized yard signs, express your pride to the new grad, or celebrate with your graduating class. However, heed health organizations’ instructions and make the necessary adjustments to your plans.
Small Party Ideas
One way to avoid canceling your party and to continue celebrating your big day is by having a small party with less than 10 individuals in attendance. Create an intimate setting with only your closest family and friends and celebrate your big win in small ways for now.
Make sure to limit close contact and adhere to the recommended distance of six feet from each other. To play it safe, frequently wash your hands for 20 seconds and disinfect surfaces during and after the party.
Virtual Party Ideas
If you want to opt for a safer alternative, consider having the graduation party over video chat. Create a virtual invite for all your friends and family, and host your party on one of the many video sharing platforms for large groups. This is the best way to limit social interaction and protect everyone from any potential exposure to the virus.
People can still interact, exchange congratulations and stories, and enjoy the atmosphere of the party without leaving their homes and risking their health. Plus, you do not have to limit your celebration to only a few friends or family members; you can invite everyone you want to your virtual graduation party.
Date Change Ideas
Although graduation traditionally occurs in May or June, your graduation party does not have to be on the same day as the actual event, especially in unknown times like these. If you have your perfect party planned, and it cannot be decreased in size or transferred online, consider delaying to a later date when it is safe for people to travel, be in public settings, and interact closely with others.
No matter what you choose to do you can celebrate your graduate in a BIG way. We would love to help be a part of your celebration. Contact us to book a personalized yard greeting!
