Fun Graduation Party Ideas for the Students in Your Life

Get the equipment to make your graduation party unforgettable!


Can you believe it’s already time to plan a graduation party? From grade school to grad school, it’s that time of year for both endings and new beginnings. It seems like the year has simply flown by! You won’t want to wait any longer to get things planned and especially to reserve your event rental equipment. Whether celebrating high school graduation or preparing for the end of college, all you need to do is pick your favorite form of entertainment, which is why we’ve assembled these fun graduation party ideas just for you.


Photo Booth

Create your own graduation party photo yearbook but setting up a fun photo booth for all your party attendees. Choose from different sized tents so you can control the lighting and assemble some fun and crazy backdrops. Choose from a sparkling “Class of 2020” or go high-class and gift everyone a professional headshot to celebrate the end of college and the beginning of new careers. Don’t forget to add assorted props because you’ll want to have some fun with friends. Choose to share the shots digitally, or upload them to create custom photo books.



Pump up your party and get things started with graduation party rentals like a portable dance floor. You’ll really get your crew moving with this upscale and fun activity. Remind your guest to dress for fun and you’ll love seeing the pictures afterward too. If you want to add some fun graduation party ideas for the evening, don’t forget some flashy lights or even a little smoke for effect. Make sure that playlist has today’s hottest hits not just yesterday’s favorites!


Eco-Friendly Gala

Your tent rentals can suit any type of taste. Another cute take on the large gathering is adding an earth-friendly theme (think colorful paper straws and decorative mason jars). A great fit for your budding environmentalist or marine biologist, you can rent catering equipment like regular plates and dinnerware instead of relying on disposables. Decorate with upcycled materials like rainbow-hued linens or add some potted plants. Test out a garden theme, rustic and earthy theme, Oceana-based ideas, or even get crafty. For party favors, try gifting plantable seed paper or tiny tree saplings.


Family Game Night

When it comes to fun graduation party ideas, this is sure to be one filled with smiles. Invite the whole crew over to your favorite backyard or park area and let the games begin. Fill the area with giant floor checkers and Tic Tac Toes. Best your cousin a dice-themed game of Yardzee or join the kids for a bean bag toss. Step it up a notch by adding party rentals like a bouncy house or even a dunk tank. Complement the whole occasion with picnic tables and an outdoor grill. It’s time to bring on the hamburgers, hotdogs, and potato salad.
