The World is Your Market! Graduation Party Ideas from Evite and Panera

It's Graduation season! 
I love graduation parties because they really do mark and end and a beginning. 
Graduation parties can be tough for parents because you want something memorable, but there just aren't many cute graduation themes out there to inspire you. 
Well, today I am sharing an awesome graduation party idea from Evite and Panera Bread!
"The World is Your Market" is a great, fresh take on a graduation theme. 

May and June are the perfect months to do parties alfresco! It's not too hot yet and since so many graduation ceremonies are in the morning, you can easily make it a brunch! 
I think all moms are looking to throw a party easily and with no-stress, right? Well, why not have the brunch catered?  One of my favorite places to order food for my parties is Panera Bread. 
You can even order online! I LOVE online ordering! 
I always panic on the phone and forget something. 

How delicious does this spread look? 
Your guests will love it!
The backdrop is simply letters spray-painted white and attached to the backdrop. You could easily do these letters in the colors of your child's high school, or even the college they will be attending!

The styling on this table is so beautiful and inviting. Doesn't it make you want to grab something off there right now? 


One of my favorite details is this "You're One Smart Cookie" station created with Panera cookies. 

I love working vintage globes into parties and this chalkboard painted one is the perfect touch!
A great activity for guests is to write the graduate a little note of congratulations. 
This adorable little vignette is set up to look like tiny diplomas. All you do is write your note with the cleverly disguised flower pens, roll them up, and tie them with a little piece of twine!
The graduate can read them that day, or maybe even keep them to open later on down the road. 

Good Luck with all those graduation parties this Spring and Summer!
