Tips for Planning a Graduation Party
Obviously there is a world of difference between planning a high school graduation party and a party for college grads. The serving of alcohol would be the first difference. At a college graduation you might do a champagne toast, while at a high school graduation, it definitely needs to be alcohol-free. Consider creating a special cocktail for college grads and a special “mocktail” for high school grads. Work with the coordinator at the South Coast event venue for any special menu items.
Make sure to secure the space at our banquet rooms in Swansea as soon as you know when you want to throw your party. Obviously space goes quickly during graduation and wedding season, so the sooner you can start planning your party for your banquet facility, the better. Once you secure your date and get a contract set with all of the elements that you want included, you can start sending out your invitations to friends and family. Stay in contact with the event coordinator to make sure you have an accurate head count as you start to get RSVP replies back from your guests.
Who to Invite?
When you throw a graduation party, make sure to speak with the graduate to find out who they want to be invited to their special event. You can invite local friends and family, school mates, professors and teachers, guidance counselors and anyone else that has been an important influence on their life. You can also invite out of town guests, such as grandparents, cousins or best friends that have moved away. Even if you think a special guest won’t be able to make the trip, it is respectful to invite them anyway. In most cases they will be happy to be able to send a card or gift instead.
Speak with the event coordinator at the banquet rooms in Swansea to find out if there is an approved vendor list. Many times a banquet facility will provide a list of popular vendors as way of helping their clients hire quality services for their events. It can be difficult to locate quality vendors for all of these different services, especially if you have never thrown a big party like this before. You want to know that when you order a special graduation cake, that it will show up and look just like you were promised. That’s not the kind of surprise that you want on the day of your party.
Some of the types of vendors that you might hire for a graduation party can include:
- DJs and emcees
- photo booth operators
- photographers and videographers
- cake and pastry bakers
- limousine services
- florists and decorations
- ice sculptures
- invitations and thank-you notes
Make sure to speak with the event coordinator at our South Coast event venue to find out more about all of our pre-approved vendors and vendor partners that you can use to enhance your special celebration. It is important to work with reliable, professional and insured vendors who will deliver as promised.
