Graduation Party Ideas!

Now that Easter is over, we can move on to other candy topics and important candy holidays – like Graduation! This important life event is right around the corner for the class of 2011, and those hardworking graduates deserve some creative treats at their party.  Our friends from Pizzazzerie and other sites have put together an amazing list of creative graduation party ideas that we just have to share our top 3 here.

Candy Graduation Caps – These come from the incredible, one-of-a-kind, Bakerella, who gives the entire instructions for how to make these on her site.  A hint from us – if you’re making a big quantity, get your Reese’s Mini’s and Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers from us at wholesale prices.  You can also use Sour Straws for the tassles!

Free Graduation Party Printables from Living Locurto! According to, all you need to do is Print, Cut and Party!

Graduation Party Centerpiece – This one comes from the Hostess With the Mostess Blog and is a wonderful and easy centerpiece idea. Here’s what you do: Recover a stack of books with wrapping paper that fits in the color theme of your party, like your school colors (tip: your local scrapbooking store usually has a limited supply of scrapbook paper featuring local high school and colleges logos), and bind with a ribbon.  Or wrap the books old-school style with the butcher paper or brown paper bags and tie with ribbons matching your school colors.  Either way, these centerpieces will be sure to grad attention!

    I recently attended the high school graduation party of my niece that was so wonderful. They had put up a big-screen tv and played a musical show made with pictures of her growing up from childhood to now. It reminded us of the time she was born and it depicted the story of how she evolved into a beautiful young woman. Everything was perfectly synchronized to music and the results were awesome! They got the show custom made for them by Smiling Snaps and I had never seen anything like that before.

    These candies look delicious. Perhaps you could make the candy the entire theme of the party. For the candy loving graduate you could have candy bars with featured candies, weird candies, their favorite childhood candies and also some special ones from other countries. Blend them in with the graduation decorations, tributes and memorabilia for a wonderful graduation party. The favors could be special one off candies or even just give guests a bag and get them to fill it with any candy they wish.
