Impress your guests with these easy graduation party photo display ideas! One of my favorite parts of a graduation party (other than the food) is checking out the photo display.
It’s fun to see all the activities they enjoyed while in school. Most of the parties I go to also feature pictures of the graduate throughout the years…I love seeing how much they’ve grown and changed!
So gather together your favorite pictures, take a stroll down memory lane, and get ready to make (or order) fabulous graduation party photo displays.
Photo Numbers or Letters
Share your grad’s favorite memories – and call attention to his/her grad year – by displaying photos in the shape of numbers.
These sturdy photo numbers from Shindigz are available in 2 sizes.
The larger size looks fabulous displayed on a fence or a large wall.
The smaller numbers or letters can be placed directly on the memory table, or can hang just over the table.
I love how they used the grad’s initial on the memory table pictured above. It’s so much easier – and eye-catching – than a trifold board.
If you use the photo letters, the grad can then use it as a decoration in their dorm room – it’s a great reminder of home and good times!
Grad Party Garage Door Banners
Let the whole neighborhood know that you’ve got a new graduate with an oversized garage door banner!
The striking banner pictured above comes in 8 colors and is a fabulous way to announce how proud you are of the graduate.
K-12 Photo Yard Signs
You bought all those school photos for a reason…put them to good use by displaying all of them in full living color at the party! Yard sign set also includes 2 “Congratulations” signs that can be personalized with school colors and your own text.
What a fun way to start the party (and maybe embarrass your grad just a bit with those awkward middle school photos). Yard sign set available at Shindigz.
