Paula of Frog Prince Paperie sent us the fantastic graduation party and I know you’ll get inspired. The theme is “A Bright Future” and can be applied to your high school graduation party. You can create a dessert display like thus using the school colors of your graduate. And of course you can update the year as needed.

To round out this table you can serve golden graduation party punch. It’s made for all ages and the color compliments this blue and yellow decor. Furthermore,  you can add these outdoor party decor ideas to welcome guests as they arrive to the party.

Paula found the light bulb candy containers at Hobby Lobby and added real bulbs around the table for decor. She added some classic graduation symbols like pirouette cookies tied with fruit candy strips to look like diplomas. Mortarboard “graduation caps” are made to top the push pop containers. See how to make DIY graduation caps yourself.
Lollipops are molded into the graduation year, and decorated cookies are always a welcome treat.

HOSTESS TIP: Use the push pop containers for things other than cupcakes. Fill them with candies for cute party favors.
