How to make your special graduation achievement awesome and memorable by hosting a Virtual Graduation Party with friends and family!
How to Host a Virtual Graduation Party
This year my son was going to be graduation from 5th grade. The first of many milestones in his life. As a mom, you know these milestones are sometimes more important to us with pictures and memories than they are for the kids.
Now that we are getting closer to the end of the school year, the thought of an in-person graduation just doesn’t seem feasible. But that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate! You can host a virtual graduation party!
So how can you make your virtual graduation party a huge success?
Set up a virtual graduation invitation
Using google meet or Zoom to host your virtual graduation party.
Send an online invitation to your child’s classmates, friends and your family. Find a fun graduation themed invite to email out to everyone!
Now it’s time to have a virtual graduation party!
Treat this virtual graduation party just like any other party! Pick a theme! Maybe you will want to keep things low key and have a luau theme. Or maybe you will choose to go fancy and have everyone at your virtual graduation party get dressed up!
After all, this is a special day for your graduate! Find out what they’d like to do. Maybe your graduate can wear their cap and gown to the party.
Make a virtual scrapbook for the party
These kids are sure to have some amazing memories. I know for our graduating class, there is a lot of discussion on how they will get their yearbooks.
Have every kid email you some of pictures or videos from their favorite memories together. Then, create a slideshow you can share during your virtual graduation party.
Plan for Food + Drinks!
We all know the best party of a party is the food and drinks! Here are some ideas:
Pick a theme and everyone enjoys something in their home from that theme. IE: pizza, appetizers, taco night, etc.
Or use door dash or grub hub to order desserts or pizzas to all of your party attendees!
I am loving what some local party stores and party companies are doing around here. They are blowing up balloons and surprising people by putting balloons and decorations for birthdays and events outside of their house.
With everything going on, enjoy this special moment! Announce your achievements from the rooftops with balloons and other fun graduation decor inside and outside of your home.
Play some games at your Virtual Graduation Party
Have some fun with your party guests by playing some games. You can all choose to play a card or board game via your google meet or zoom, charades, pictionary or something else you can think of!
Congrats to the class of 2020! I hope your virtual graduation party is just awesome!
