Tips For Celebrating Grads, Dads, Start Of Summer


Staff report

Celebrating grads, Dads and endless Summer nights are upon us as we enter the month of June. To ease your sweat-induced stress levels related to planning a party for a recent grad or favorite dad, we’ve enlisted help from go-to party planners Ticket2Events.

Sean Koski and Brian Kelly of Ticket2Events, have got you covered this month from tips on a fishing themed BBQ to a sparkly graduation party.

When planning a special occasion for dad ask yourself what his favorite pastime is and build your party theme around that. If dad loves to fish, or be on the water, think about scheduling a fishing day trip or boat trip with the family. Keep the decorations aboard minimal, and focus on games/activities to play with while on the trip. If dad’s into golf, schedule time on the driving range before heading home for a golf themed celebration.

Brian Kelly and Sean Koski say, “Our favorite drink to add to any golf themed event is an Arnold Palmer, half lemonade, half iced tea.” Adding vodka will transform the Arnold Palmer into John Daly – appropriately so. Decorations for dad’s day can be fun too. Ticket2events suggest, “Filling the room with favorite photos of dad through the years,” to add the sentimental touch desired on Father’s Day.

Graduation parties are hard to miss in June especially since most schools release their students to the real world by end of May! Celebrating the accomplishments of a recent grad is hard to miss too! Sean Koski says, “Like a bride in white, we can’t imagine a graduation party without a little sparkle! We try to add to every graduation party a little bit of flash!” From invitations that gleam when opened to glitter parting gifts like eye/body glitter palettes from KM Reflection, Ticket2Events says, “If it glistens, add it to your graduation party!” If your graduation party is celebration the move from high school to college, decorate accent pieces in a glittered version of the new school colors.
