But, they did it! Graduation has finally arrived!
A party is the prefect way to highlight all their past accomplishments and celebrate with family and friends as they prepare to embark on their journey toward future dreams.

graduation party, and your event can be as unique and special as the

Who doesn't love to dance? The popularity of shows like Dancing With The Stars or So You Think You Can Dance has brought the passion for this pastime to a whole new level. Hire a professional instructor to teach a favorite style – hip hop, ballroom, Latin, or even Bollywood – or host your own dance competition so guest can show off their skills.
Honor the star(s) of the show by rolling out the red carpet and inviting guests to attend this exclusive Black Tie affair. Interview family and friends as they arrive, and be sure to film it! After serving champagne (non-alcoholic, of course) and fancy hors d'oeuvres, you can show a theme-based movie such as The Graduates, Class Act, Accepted, or General Admission.

airplane/helicopter races. Host the party outside or transform your
venue into a star-filled night sky. You may even want to film
classmates talking about their dreams and hopes for the future, and
how they see themselves in 10 years. Shoot off fire works or have
guests release lighted paper lanterns. The sky is the limit!
