  • Sign-in Board: This is a great way for the host to keep track of all of the guests who attend the graduation party and it allows the guests to write a heartfelt message to the graduate. Be sure to leave instructions next to the board to let the guests know that they can feel free to write a quote, advice, congratulations, or musings on the board for the graduate to read. Another alternative to a sign-in board is a sign-in book. Use some of your grad's favorite photos to create a photo book that their friends can write in!
  • Photo Collages: Entertain your guests with cute and humorous pictures of the graduate over the years leading up to their big day. If it is a college graduation party, for example, include pictures from preschool through high school and college.
