Graduation Party & Gift Ideas

"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." ~ Les Brown

For kindergarten graduation, let your child sign the mat for a cap-and-gown picture. This signature will be even more precious a few years down the road when you photograph your high-school senior holding this special keepsake from long ago.

Make sweet mortar boards by securing a fudge-square cookie to a mini peanut-butter cup with icing. Add the tassel with a thin strip of fruit candy.

Any cylindrical foods, from store-bought cookies to pinwheel finger sandwiches, can become a diploma when tied with ribbon.

For a graduation-party tablescape, favor, or gift, wrap Starbucks Frappuccino bottles in custom labels, fill with posies, and add the gift tag to a striped paper straw.

Cut a custom square-shaped black card, and hot glue a tassel and button to the center. For an extra-special touch, enclose cash tied like a diploma.

Frame a quote from a favorite book, such as Oh, The Places You'll Go. Let the look of this print inspire whimsical decorations and a springy color palette.
