College graduation themed partiesOkay moms, if you are graduating college after this spring semester, it’s time to celebrate and live it up.  How about celebrating with a themed party for yourself where you can invite all your family and closest friends?  Who says that themes are just for kids?  They don’t have to be and after all, a mom is a kid at heart.

I know that when I officially graduate with my next degree I want to have a themed party to celebrate.  So believe it or not I have been researching if this is possible.  There are actually a wide variety of themed ideas out there for college graduates.  Which one do you choose, right?  Well, I thought it would be fun to make a list of themes for a college graduation party.  Let the good times roll!

I am sure there are so many ideas out there that I am leaving out but these are definitely a good start don’t you think?  Just looking at the list I am getting excited and already planning in my head what kind of graduation party I would like to have one day.  The Hollywood party theme seems like it would be really exciting as you could dress up in your formal wear and invite others to do the rest.  The invitations could be very formal like a red carpet event.  The possibilities are endless.
