It’s that time of the year again when copies of “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” fly off the shelves and renditions of “Pomp and Circumstance” can be heard in school auditoriums throughout the country. Yes, it’s graduation season again.
But before your birdie flies the nest, it’s time to throw them the epic party they deserve. At The Clubhouse Montclair, we provide a venue for company parties in Essex County, and we want your graduation party to be engaging and memorable. That’s why we’re providing you with some ideas to get your creative party planning juices flowing and help you throw the greatest party ever.
Let’s check out some essential components of a lively and entertaining graduation party:
The menu for a graduation party doesn’t need to be fancy or complicated, but it should be fun. Universally-loved foods like pizza and cupcakes are an easy go-to, but more inventive foods such as mac and cheese bites or even a cotton candy machine can put your party over the top. The Clubhouse Montclair features ample table space for your food stations and a warming oven to keep food coming out fresh and tasty.
Depending on the age of your graduate, you can set up a cocktail or mocktail bar for your guests. Be innovative by including refreshing summertime drinks like strawberry ginger coolers, cucumber coolers, or the tried-and-true punch bowl. They’re delicious on their own, but these drinks allow you the option to add alcohol if desired. At The Clubhouse Montclair, we have soda and mixer options in addition to our ice and glassware package to help you craft your imaginative BYOB drinks.
Keeping your guests engaged and involved is integral to their enjoyment. Consider getting the party jumping with a dance contest using our Spotify-friendly sound system. Or, you can create a “comment wall” where guests use markers to share a memory or a funny anecdote about the graduate.
You could also play “guess the grade school picture,” where you challenge partygoers to match other guests’ elementary school pictures with their adult photos. It’s a fun and easy way to get your guests interacting with one another.
The Clubhouse Montclair is one of the premier venues for graduation parties in Essex County. Let us provide you with the space to make your graduation party truly unforgettable.
