Sometimes, it's not possible for everyone to be together for graduation - and that's okay! There are plenty of ways to close the distance and tap into unique graduation party decoration ideas to create an intimate virtual graduation celebration with your friends and loved ones.
First off, you'll want to plan how you will bring your family and friends together virtually. You'll need to decide which platform you want to use and pick a date and time so you can invite everyone to log on and tune in.
The easiest, most popular video platforms to use are Zoom, Skype, Facetime (you can even create a Facebook event as your invite), Google Hangouts and Google Duo.
Each platform has different limitations, so choose the best for your group. Zoom has a limit of 40 minutes, so if your gatherings tend to go long, this may not be your best option. Facetime only works with iOS, so if your group won't all be joining from Apple devices, this is not an option. Google Hangouts require a gmail account and Google Duo requires your participants download the app. All these platforms are free to use, you only need an internet connection and a computer, tablet or phone with a camera.
Now, let's talk party planning. Here are six ways to say hat's off and game on to a hype grad party!
