A graduation in the family is definitely a milestone worth throwing a party for! And if the honoree is a lovely young lady, why not thrill her with a Glam Graduation Party in the chic-est palette and decor trends these days? We’re talking a pink, gold and black color scheme. Plus the hottest G’s in party styling—geometrics, geodes, gemstones and of course glitter! A perfect blend of girliness and sophistication as she bids goodbye to high school and looks ahead to college life.
Come and see how you can source the grad party decorations and goodies—or even make many of them yourself!
“Glam Grad Party” Ideas: Decor, Treats, Gifts
The secret to choosing your grad party elements is to keep focused on the pink-gold-black palette and the geometrics-gems-glitter look. And voila! A fab ambiance for your beloved graduate.
Parties nowadays owe a lot of their polish to well-chosen paper elements. Think invites, party signs, place cards, menu cards and favor tags. For this chic event, see these glam examples we found.
First, a pink watercolor-style graduation party invitation (1) from Zazzle. We couldn’t help noticing how it mimics another motif that’s “in” now, too: marbling!
Then, this striking “Agate” fashion print in pink with gold leaf (2) from Lezlee Elliott on etsy. It would be fabulous as a welcome sign or dessert table backdrop, then as a memento to take along to college!
Be right on trend with a party garland of 3D geometric forms (8) with pink and gold glitter, of course! You can actually DIY this following the tutorial from Mod Podge Rocks. More DIY decorations are these hanging geometric pendants (2) made from straws and string, with matching geometric box place cards (plus many more amazing ideas in the same post!)—courtesy of Kristi Murphy.
For the table settings, a great way to combine practical with pretty is through decorative party ware like these kraft and neon pink geometric paper plates (4) available from Ginger Ray.
And for a really cool way for guests to write their messages and greetings, how about an alternative “guest book” crafted from an old globe painted with pink chalkboard paint (9)? Thanks to A Little Craft in Your Day for the tutorial. A great decor piece for the grad’s future dorm room, too, don’t you think?
Glam goodies and favors
Perfect for this grad party would be a pink ombre layer cake (7) like this one from Eddie Ross. Sweet and sophisticated all in one! While for party drinks, consider pink lemonade in jars (6) with straws trimmed with gold bows as seen on Lillian Hope Designs. And perhaps pink champagne for a congratulatory toast to the graduate!
Finally, give unique party favors like these glittered chocolate jewels (5). They look pretty fancy, but are actually DIY-able! Check out the how-to video by Friedia.
So if the usual “university colors” bash isn’t quite your young graduate’s style, this pink and gold Glam Grad Party is definitely a stylish alternative, don’t you agree?
