After a year of distance learning, cancelled activities, and minimal time with friends, the class of 2021 deserves a graduation celebration like no other. Although the COVID situation has improved, the virus is still circulating, and safety must be a main factor in party planning. But we’re here to help! Here are a few tips for throwing a socially distanced graduation party that is special, memorable, fun – and safe.
The best and easiest way to minimize risk is to keep the party fully outdoors. From food and drinks to games and mingling, plan for every aspect of the party to be held outside.
Of course, this means weather will be a factor. Our party rentals will help you be ready for any situation. If it’s hot out, keep food and drinks cool with our “Fill n’ Chill” table, beverage dispenser with infuser, or tabletop ice bucket. Whether rain or sun is in the forecast, a tent is always a good idea (and is something you’ll want to book well in advance).
Spread the Party Out
Instead of holding all party activities on your driveway or one part of your yard, space it out. Serve food in the garage, games in the backyard, and a photo booth on the driveway. Place tables and chairs throughout the party with plenty of distance between them.
Stagger Arrival Times
If your guest list is large, consider staggering guest arrival times. You could ask family to arrive at one time and friends at another, or divide guests into groups based on their last names. Set specific blocks and ask guests to adhere to their specified time as closely as possible.
Offer a Drive-By Option
For folks who are high-risk or who aren’t comfortable attending parties, offer a drive-by graduation party option. This will allow them to congratulate the graduate while staying safe.
