Easy Graduation Party Photo Display Ideas That Will Impress Your Guests

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

2021 Grad Party photo displays - Looking for clever ways to display pictures at a grad party? Check out these easy but impressive ideas!

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.

Photo Letters are great way to show off your favorite pictures at a college or high school grad party!  They're a fun accent to the senior memory table, and you can put them in your dorm room after the party as a fun reminder of friends from home.

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!

Order photo numbers and letters at Shindigz.
