Jeannine Johnson from It’s Your Party Bakersfield shows us some great ideas for throwing the perfect graduation party on a budget. 

Helpful Tips:

  • Take advantage of inexpensive stores like 99 Cent Store and Dollar Tree– you shouldn’t have to spend a lot of money
  • Collect school photos from throughout the years for a great centerpiece or decoration.
  • Flowers!
  • Use the graduation cap as a guest book for party-goers to write the graduate words of encouragement
  • Butcher paper in place of linen tablecloths, also a great way to write a note for the graduate
  • Use college books and stack them in the middle of the table as centerpieces
