For the past few years I have co-planned our home school group Graduation & Achievements Ceremony with another fantastic homeschooling mom from our group. We have a wonderful mom who is one of the group founding members who officiates the festivities.
I thought I would share a few ideas from our ceremony/celebration planning.
We plan this very simply with cupcakes and lemonade, and a few fun supplies found on amazon.com. You can serve what ever you like!! We decided to go this route because it required very little work for us, and nothing of the attending families, other than a few dollars to contribute. The cupcakes are fun and yummy and require no plates or cutlery, just small napkins.
Our beautiful FREE location is at a park on the water under a beautiful pavilion that needs nothing other than a few balloons, and the beauty of our children and families participating.
We do book a rain date given the outdoor location. If this appeals to you, you can call around your city to see what is required to reserve a public location like this. We simply fill out a small form online and submit with our date and time for approval. You could also do this as a backyard or even beach event.
