Graduation Party Ideas and Decorations For The Class of 2024

Any graduation is a cause for celebration! Whether you're celebrating a high school grad, college grad, or even a petite preschool grad, a fabulous graduation party is a must. Lucky for you, we have a degree in perfect party planning and are happy to educate you on all of the best graduation party supplies you’ll need for an unforgettable celebration. So, accept our party invite and cue the Pomp and Circumstance

Traditionally, graduation party decor has been designed around blacks, golds, and silvers. But since we like to keep things fun and fresh at Bonjour Fête, we took a much more colorful to celebrate the class of 2024 with rainbow hues. After all, the future is bright so why shouldn’t your decor be too!?

We’re all about using various colors when choosing party supplies for modern grad parties because a multicolor palette pairs easily with any school colors. That’s why our Sprinkles & Smiles partyware collection with Flour Shop LA is ideal for graduation parties. It features all sorts of bright and bold colors to mix and match with other decor. 

With this in mind, we based the rest of our graduation decorations around the blue, yellow, pink, and greens featured in the partyware to tie our whole rainbow celebration together.

Whether you’re celebrating indoors or throwing a backyard graduation party, balloon garlands are always an A+ idea! Naturally, we color-coordinate, but the options are endless when it comes to combinations.

If you’re looking to keep it simple, pick up a few graduation-themed balloons and create your own arrangement, it’s just as fantastic! Quick tip: cut up a tassel banner and wrap it around the base of the balloons for a stylish touch.

And while we’re on the topic of banners, let’s break down another fun DIY graduation decoration. A few years back, we repurposed the giant Alphalit 2022 numbers from New Year's Eve, and Pop Park City created some rainbow tassel decorations using a few Happy Birthday garlands

If you want to try this out, the process is simple. Just cut out some cardboard and layer the tassels horizontally across the length and width of the numbers. We also topped our display with an adorable graduation cap balloon mosaic. Hats off for unique graduation decorations!  

We loved this rainbow color scheme so much that we needed it in flag form. These graduate flags are a must-have for any grad’s big day. Not only do they make fabulous decorations, but they’re also wonderful photo props, yard sign embellishments, and party favors. 

Even better, these flags are beautiful keepsakes to commemorate all your grad’s accomplishments. We love the idea of adding them to scrapbooks or shadow box picture frames along with photos from the celebration! 

Now let’s go back to this all-tassel no-hassle tableware set-up. We started it off by layering the Sprinkles & Smiles Small Plates over the large rainbow chargers. Then, we added the coordinating confetti napkins.

To tie in the graduation theme, we embellished each setting with a graduation cap napkin and our Signature Black Noir Cups.

No grad fête is complete without a few celebratory party favors. Mini piñata favors are always a good option, and these smiley face guys are too cute to pass up. Fill them with any kind of candy, small trinkets, or dollar bills, and place one at each setting for your guests to pop open and take home! 

All good things must come to an end, but there’s always another celebration just around the corner. We hope you’ve enjoyed our colorful take on graduation parties, and feel prepared to throw your own! Congratulations to the class of 2024!
