Super Budget Friendly Graduation Party Ideas

Graduation is right around the corner and I cannot think of a better reason to celebrate.  Today, I will be sharing with you a few super budget friendly ideas for hosting a graduation party.  I hope that you all will find these tips helpful in planning an epic party to celebrate your scholar.


Invitations- One of the most frugal ways to invite family and friends is send it electronically or to create a Facebook event.  * You may want to create a few DIY paper invites to send to guest who may not have social media.


Venue- Host your party in the comfort of your home in order to further reduce cost. If your home does not have the proper spacing/seating for your guest; considering renting out a pavilion, park or public facility that has low-cost rental fees.

Décor- Now this one can add up very quickly as it is easy to get carried away.  The important thing here is to stick with a theme and carry it throughout the party for the biggest impact.  To get more inexpensive ideas for decorating check out these videos: and

Food- Planning a menu has proven to be more cost effective than offering a plethora of finger foods. I recently hosted an event and the caterer provided smoked chicken, green beans, baked potatoes with all the trimmings, rolls and sweet tea- for $6.50 per person.  We were able to feed 30 people for less than $200! Grilling is always a great option as well… Whatever you choose to do, remember to create a budget and don’t bulge.

I hope that you found these tips helpful in planning your graduation celebration.  Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Youtube for a daily dose of luxe for less tips, ideas and inspiration.
