After more than a year spent largely within the confines of your own home, one thing is for sure: you’re going to want to celebrate your 2022 graduate and all of their accomplishments, the most significant of which is coming through a very unique high school. or college experience. And the good news: you can do it safely.
If we’ve learned anything from our ongoing experiences with coronaviruses, it’s that there are many unique ways to honor major life milestones. If you’re still expecting big social gatherings, litter your lawn with signs and decorations and host a special drive-in event. Or go for a large Zoom family party, which is also a great idea for distant relatives. Because small gatherings, especially outdoors, have become more and more frequent, a thematic garden barbecue is also a great way to toast your son, daughter or any honoree.
Whichever way you choose to celebrate, just by honking, blasting graduation songs, and handing out favor boxes or having a big buffet and eating, drinking and having fun together – the most important thing is that your event is centered around your hard-working graduate. The party doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. Depending on the scale of it, expect to spend between $50 and a few hundred dollars. (Plus, if you go big with Pinterest-worthy decorations like graduation quotes scribbled on blackboards, a tent and a caterer, of course!)
