Can you believe that graduation season is almost here? Yikes! Where does the time go? If you’re in the midst of planning a graduation party, I’ve got the best graduation party ideas and recipes.

I oversee all the events at my church and we always throw a bash for all the graduating seniors and I encourage everyone to come and shower them with cards (and money). Each year I try to come up with a different theme. Some of my favorite graduation parties are ice cream socials, pizza parties and Oh, The Places You’ll Go type parties.
