On May 21st the Deuel Senior Class of 2011 will graduate. With this, they need to celebrate. Most all seniors' families host a graduation party as a congratulation for their graduate. Planning these graduation parties does take time too.
The families have probably thought about what they will serve at their party. Do they want to do a traditional pork loin supper, walking taco fiesta, or a strictly salad and dessert bar. With all this to consider, it is hard to make up your mind. Food is a big deal for your party. The decorations are another important aspect to your gathering. You have to have tablecloths, centerpieces, a guestbook, plates, napkins, and any other extra do-dad you may want to complete the "look" of your grad party. I thought picking out the decorations was the most fun part about planning the graduation party. Also you have to invite the guests! Contacting your photographer is the first step to this process. You can go in to their studio and tell him or her what your ideas are and they will most likely design your invitations you had in your head. Then once you get them ordered you should start sending them out to all of your friends and family so they can all acknowledge your accomplishments! Then there is the not so fun part about graduation...cleaning. You have to get everything in tip-top shape to have guests over and if your having it in your garage, you probably have a lot of work to do, or at least I do! But after all the hard work you will get to celebrate with the people that mean the most to you, It'll all be worth it!
Graduation is an exciting time. You're starting a new chapter of your life, it's just crazy how fast time flies!
