Other Outdoor Grad Party Considerations
In planning your upcoming outdoor graduation bash, you have tons of freedom to craft the kind of party you want to make a truly memorable experience for your guests. But, there are lots of other things to keep in mind to guarantee everything goes off without a hitch.
Planning an Outdoor Party Around the Weather
As you plan the most epic gathering to celebrate such an epic feat as graduation, there are a few other considerations to take. First, weather can play a key role in a party’s success. While summer is more conducive to holding outdoor parties, you should have a plan B in case a summer shower comes your way. Check the weather forecast leading up to the party so you are extra prepared if plans need to shift. You can plan a “rain delay” or even have a back-up party tent ready in the wings. That way no one can rain on your grad’s parade.
Staying Safe During 2021
Graduation 2021 is definitely unlike any other. The circumstances and concerns that have risen due to the pandemic make social distancing and gathering outdoors instead of inside a primary concern for many. Make sure you emphasize to guests that the party will be held outdoors and make them comfortable if they choose to wear masks. You can even provide graduation-themed masks. By making everyone feel safe and comfortable, the party can go on without a hitch.
Using the Guest List to Plan Finer Details
Another factor to keep in mind is who all is invited to the party. Since graduation celebrations tend to bring together family and friends of all ages, consider this when you're planning the food and drinks, along with the activities and music. Picking a middle ground on activities and music is usually the best route, and as long as the two are focused on what the graduate would want, then it’s a fool-proof way to make most everyone happy.
