Unique Backyard Party Ideas For High School Graduation

shutterstock_227175187One of the best things about the spring and summer seasons for patio lovers are the entertaining opportunities. An outdoor area with beautiful landscaping and plenty of space for guests is ideal for hosting gatherings and celebrations. Here are some fun and unique backyard party ideas for homeowners to consider this graduation season:

A themed dessert bar loaded with treats. Everyone loves a good dessert bar, so set up a table with a variety of delicious themed treats. Some easy ideas include homemade ice cream sundaes with colored toppings that match the graduate’s school colors, or a candy dessert bar with a variety of color coordinated candies. You can provide small bags so that guests can fill them up with the candies of their choosing to take home with them. Since the table will be set up outside in the yard or patio, you won’t want to bring out ice cream that will melt until guests are ready for sweets. Have some other options to set out beforehand too, like cupcakes and cookies.

Have a photo booth. A photo booth is a must at any party today. You can rent one, usually by the hour, from a company that specializes in photo booths for events. They will bring the booth, props, and provide guests with photo strips of their pics right away. You can also keep it simple and create your own by setting up a background, such as draping a large white sheet on a fence, and then providing guests with fun photo props, like graduation caps, funny glasses, and wigs. Set up a camera on a tripod and let everyone have fun taking silly pictures.

Make a card crafting station. A card crafting station is a fun way to get guests engaged with an activity at the party. Provide paper, stickers, colorful markers, and envelopes so that guests can write a personal message to give to the graduate. This is also a great activity for younger kids, if you’re celebrating a preschool or elementary school graduation. Keep little ones busy with a card craft to commemorate this special event in their lives.

A graduation party is the perfect opportunity for patio lovers to entertain outdoors. Homeowners can save money by throwing a festive celebration for the graduate right in the backyard. With delicious desserts, fun activities, and a photo booth to make memories, guests will love spending time outside, appreciating the beauty of your landscaping.
