Philadelphia, PAVirtual Graduation Party - This year's graduation celebrations will be just a little..." different". Most high school and college seniors are likely to be receiving their diplomas through the mail. With commencement ceremonies on hold. Even though graduating during a pandemic is no one's first choice, entertaining specialist Jane Birdwell believes it's possible to still plan a fantastic celebration.


How To Throw a Virtual Graduation Party

       "As a mom of a graduating senior, I get the frustration that so many families may be feeling right now," says Birdwell, founder of Tablevogue, a collection of fitted table covers. "however even though you can't get together in person does not mean you are unable to celebrate your child's years of hard work and provide your family the opportunity to join in the celebration."

The following tips will help to pull off a fun and fuss-free virtual graduation party.

  • Prepare an interactive virtual invite. Choose a fun way to make use of color, theme, signage, and extras to make the party invitations {special|one-of-a-kind} and eye-catching.
  • Find a virtual viewing space. Carefully select a room of your home that will impress your online guests. It might be a cute corner of your backyard or perhaps a bright and cheerful area in your living room or dining room. The spot should be no more than 10 feet by 10 feet, so attendees can easily see the décor as well as people on camera. And make sure you remember to designate a unique space for the GRAD-of-Honor.

Keep the "wow" elements simple. You can achieve the best, results with simple touches. Start with these three:

  •    A fun dress code. Ask guests to put on the colors or logo gear from the college or university your grad will be attending this fall. If your graduate is stepping into the workforce or a trade school, ask the guest to dress following a party theme, such as Hawaiian shirts, famous book characters, etc.
  •    Impactful décor. Find a fitted table cover in a complementary color or print to produce an immediate "wow" factor and central point of focus for the GRAD-of-Honor.
  •    Great gifts. Ask that guests deliver gifts in advance, so the GRAD-of-Honor can open them and in real-time in front of guests.

         "The pandemic should not overshadow everything your graduate has achieved, and the brand new chapter they are beginning," concludes Birdwell. "Celebrate their success and encourage everyone in their lives to participate in the fun."
