A Step-by-Step Guide to Graduation Party Planning

Can you believe it’s already time to plan a celebration for their biggest accomplishment yet?! It’s finally time to truly acknowledge the years of homework, tests, packing lunches, late nights studying and early morning wake-ups to head off to school. So what do you do first?



If you haven’t booked a venue, this should be priority #1 as many locations do book up early. If you plan to host at your home, it is time to begin any household jobs that you want complete before the big day. Some low-cost venues in the area include:


Glen’s Sports Barn

Sharon Woods Shelters & Lodge

The Venice Club

Everal Barn

Westerville Park Shelters

The Market at Flint Station

Amelita Mirolo Barn
