The Ultimate Graduation Party

Owner of J. Leigh Events shares tips to cut costs but still have a great party

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — It is graduation season! If you are planning a party for your loved one, Jennifer Bishop, owner of J. Leigh Events, has some great tips for you to plan the ultimate graduation party!

Graduation parties can get very expensive. There are great ways to cut costs but not cut down on style with your decorations. Many stores have plastic and paper plates and utensils that can cut down on costs but still look very festive. Same with decorations! You can have a very exciting party with lots of décor from the dollar store or Amazon. Another great way to cut costs is to buy food from the grocery store! It is still delicious, and you can buy décor to add to it so it is more personalized.

Another fun idea is to do a guestbook with polaroid cameras! This allows guests to snap a photo and gives you more memories.
