Celebrating a Banner school year

Graduation party hosting tips

(NC) – With the end of the school year in sight for many students, parents are starting to make plans to celebrate the accomplishments of their young scholars with a festive graduation party or BBQ.

In an effort to kick off the long awaited summer vacations and congratulate students for a job well done, do-it-yourself parents are looking for customized ways to show how much they appreciate their kids' efforts.

“Showing your love and appreciation for your kids doesn't have to cost a fortune,” said Shelli Gardner, CEO and Cofounder of crafting company Stampin' Up! “The gift with the greatest impact, the one that shows you truly want to make someone feel special, is the one you make yourself.”

To make things easier for parents the experts at Stampin Up!, the country's leading crafting company, have come up with the “Celebration Basics Kit” which helps parents create the foundation for any customized party décor.

Whether the festivities are in your dining room or backyard, the kit features all the essential décor elements required for a party such as a “celebrate” banner, goodie bags and tags that come in go-with-anything neutrals that you can colourize with Bermuda Bay or Calypso Coral add-on kits. Customized stamped messages can be added to incorporate the graduation theme and the Celebration add on kit also includes address printed invitation cards.

To keep the memories of this special day alive, Gardner suggests the Everyday Fun Photobook using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio! software. “It's an intuitive design program featuring an array of colourful visuals that will help make your child's graduation memories a treasured souvenir.” Photobook Tip: Start off the book with a picture of your child's first day of school as a youngster and end with their graduation photo to mark the timeline of their scholastic journey.
