If you are looking for some budget-friendly graduation party ideas you’ve come to the right place! My son’s high school graduation open house was done on a dime and he loved it! I started out with his school colors, a simple theme and included his favorite foods that we knew his teen friends would like!
I cannot believe how time flies! My son Austin is a high school graduate! Wasn’t he a toddler just yesterday?
The theme for my son’s party was “Picture your Future” I am an avid scrapbooker and wanted to showcase my son growing up through the years – so when I saw the printables from Piggy Bank Parties, I was so excited and inspired!
I found these 8″ paper mache numbers at Hobby Lobby, painted them purple and decoupaged a collage of pictures of my son on them. It made great budget friendly centerpieces. FOR ALL THE DETAILS AND STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS click here.
Personalized lollipops in school colors from Oriental Trading
Homemade Snickerdoodles – my son’s favorite!
I made a variety of cupcake toppers – Nicole thanks for making 80 cupcakes. You’re a rockstar!

I cannot tell you how proud I am of my son, and how blessed I feel to have the privilege of being his mom. I can “Picture his Future” and know this next chapter in his life will be filled with happiness, love and success.
Love you Austin. You are now officially a Husky. Go Dawgs – Woof!
