High school and college graduations are quickly approaching and there is still time to plan and throw a fabulous party! We have put together a standard checklist to make sure your grad will remember the event forever.

Pick a Date – Start spreading the word to family and friends as soon as possible so they can start marking their calendars. Most college graduations are in May with majority of high school graduations in June which you should consider this when picking a date. Guests will likely be invited to several graduation parties, so even consider pushing the date back to July.

Set a Budget – Yes, you want this party to be a success and memorable but you do not want to go over a dollar amount you can comfortably afford.

Rent a Tent – A graduation party is about being with friends and family. A simple canopy or framed tent placed outdoors with a dance floor, tables and chairs is usually perfect for a relaxed and casual atmosphere you are aiming for. A canopy tent is perfect for the backyard being they are designed to be staked in grass. A framed tent is designed to be setup on concrete or asphalt and is anchored. The earlier you contact Sully’s Tool and Party Rental, the better selection you will have.

20×20 seats 40-50 people comfortably.

20×30 seats 60-75 people comfortably.

20×40 seats 80-100 people comfortably.

Pick a Theme – While not completely necessary, it’s always nice to have some correlation between your invites, decorations and party favors. We have a variety of fun colorful linens (https://linenswatches.com) audio/visual products, fountains, games, concessions items, and much more.
