Graduation festivities and parties are the ultimate way to celebrate your high school graduation! You’ve finally ended your senior year and it’s time to invite your loved ones and friends to commemorate it all with you!

One of the best ways to make your senior graduation party extra special is to not only showcase your senior portraits but use them in your party decorations as well!


1. GRAD SIGNING BOARD: these are one of our client’s favorite products for their grad parties! It’s a great way to commemorate your loved ones’ well wishes for your future while showcasing your fave senior pics from your AHP session! Our seniors love to take theirs with them to college and hang on their dorm room walls!

2. K THROUGH 12 WALK OF FAME: why not line your front walkway with 12 yard signs… ones with each year’s student photo starting with kindergarten all the way through your graduating class senior picture?! When all of your grad party guests arrive, they can walk through the memories with you!

3. BALLOON EMBELLISHMENTS: print out several wallets or mini-snapshots from your senior pics and use double sided tape to stick them to the ribbons of helium balloons. Whether you float them through the house or tie them down, your guests will be looking through your fave senior pics all night long.
