Celebrate this milestone with these amazing tables!
It’s finally graduation season! Now that you’re through with the blood, sweat, and tears, and you finally have a piece of paper to show for it, a celebration is in order! While having your closet family and friends around is more than enough, graduation is such an important milestone that you deserve to celebrate with something a bit more special. So read on and get inspired with these amazing scapes that’ll give you (or your graduate) a celebration to remember!
A feminine touch
Don’t you love this ultra-feminine (and ultra fun) take on the graduation tablescape? Soft tones of pink, cream, and white are balanced by a striking black and white runner, while the gold accents courtesy of the flatware and the rims on the plates add some much needed sparkle to the celebratory scape (plus, they match the banner as well). Make sure to add some confetti poppers, preferably of the sparkly and glittery kind, to really drive the mood home!
Graduating in the fall semester? No worries! Don’t wait until the commencement ceremony to begin your celebrations with this tablescape! A gold confetti runner—or some well-placed wrapping paper, for an inexpensive alternative—and some disposable gold ruffled plates add some sparkle to an otherwise plain white table without the mess of glitter, while white and gold pumpkins give a nod to the season while still being festive and color-appropriate.
Stay classy and elegant with this sparkling silver theme! Since the silver sequined tablecloth is so eye-catching, keep the rest of your scape relatively simple with monochromatic colors to avoid looking too overdone. Small white blooms in silver vases provide just the perfect amount of texture for your centerpiece, and dangling ornaments from your chandelier provide a good focal point above the table.
Treat your fresh graduate like a king (or queen) with this royally gorgeous celebratory scape! Large balloons tied down the center of the table provide some amazing height—and a beautiful focal point—instead of a one-dimensional centerpiece and runner. The black and gold color scheme also helps to give this table a very special and congratulatory feel.
Bring on the school spirit
Burnt orange and navy blue make for a school spirit-themed graduation party! Take a cue from this tablescape and incorporate the colors of your school into your look. For a cute way to really drive the idea of graduation home, DIY mini mortarboard place cards for each setting.
