Inside: Virtual Graduation Ideas to Celebrate Class of 2020

Graduating from high school, college, or graduate school can be one of life’s most memorable and rewarding milestones. That’s why virtual graduation celebrations are so important right now. Whether it’s your first degree or your third, graduating is a time of recognition for all the hard work you’ve put into studying, taking tests, and studying some more. It’s an important tradition that most of us love to share with our closest friends or family, whether we’re able to celebrate in the same place or not.

Supplies for Virtual Graduation Day

Whether you’re celebrating your graduated through FaceTime, Zoom or a small gathering with family. You defiantly need supplies to make their day feel special.

Yard Letters: One of my favorite Virtual Graduation Day decoration ideas is large yard letters! They are quickly growing in popularity and are such a fun way to show your graduate how proud you are of them!

Graduation Ideas

Balloons: Balloons are one of the best ways to celebrate. Whether you send them to a graduate or use them as a decoration, they are the perfect way to add a little fun to any celebration!

Here are a few of our favorite balloon ideas:

We teamed up with our friend Melanie from Living Luxuriously for Less to give you more fun Virtual Graduation decorating ideas!

Send Personal Messages

Instead of arranging a group video chat for a specific time, try encouraging friends and family of the graduate to send them special messages throughout the day of their graduation. This way, the graduate will have a steady stream of video messages throughout a day that will be sure to put (and keep) a smile on their face.

Virtual Dinner Celebration

If you love a good dinner party, then order up a meal for you and your friends right to your doors. Set up a Zoom or FaceTime call with your guests and enjoy eating a meal together virtually! Honor your grad with a great dinner party and even some games! It’ll feel (almost) like a fancy dinner out to celebrate the party guest of honor’s graduation.

Themed Zoom Party & Gift

Pick a place the graduate has always wanted to go and plan a themed Zoom party around it. If the person has always wanted to go to Italy, send them a homemade pizza kit or a pasta dinner. Play Italian music and make your Zoom background Italian scenes. Then, at the end of the call, tell them that you’ve all chipped in to start an “Italy vacation” fund for them for whenever travel is able to happen again. Having something to look forward to is always a good idea, right?

Virtual Graduation Karaoke Ideas

Get on a group video chat and belt out your favorite coming-of-age tunes, like Vitamin C classic “Graduation (Friends Forever),” Boyz II Men‘s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday,” Eve 6‘s “Here’s to the Night” and more.

Plan a Personal Parade

Gather all their friends, family, and neighbors and start the longest carry van of cars to congratulate your graduate. Have each car make fun signs and decorate the outside of their vehicle with fun streamers and balloons. Then set a time for everyone to drive by and wish your grad a big congrats!
