Overcome the Most Difficult Color Combinations for Graduation Parties

In Ohio, we are already starting to plan for graduation parties for next year.  If you think wedding color schemes are hard, try sticking to the traditional high school color combinations mandated across the U.S.  Our challenge?  Green and Yellow.

I know what you are thinking!  I love mint and light yellow color palettes.  Or how about black with touches of Emerald and Gold?  Wouldn't that be great?  It would but we are talking St. Patrick's Day green and goldish yellow for a daytime event.  You can imagine how quickly a party could start to resemble March 17th festivities or even Fat Tuesday.

But we didn't give up and after a week of looking at inspirational photos on Pinterest and Google, we found our answer.  SUNFLOWERS!

When designing your space, don't forget to design in levels including up!  These are great options and you can get silk ones wholesale for under $13.00 each at Save-On-Crafts.

Loving the idea of a striped runner as the base of the table design.  I wonder what our graduate will choose?

Use any items throughout your graduate's high school experience to add to the decor of the event.  This is a super cute graduation cap that is very DIY friendly!

Add graphics and printables where you can to add that extra pop of green to this color scheme.  I also love the colored straws with different designs.  Super fun and easy to find online.

Cut the stems of the Sunflowers close to the flower itself and place the flowers around the tables for extra decor or use smaller ones on the napkins at each place setting.  They stay fresh throughout the event because they are a hearty floral.  We also love the idea shown here of adding game tables for action stations.
We can't wait to start the planning process and will be sure to share the final product with you just in case you find yourself agonizing over yellows and greens for your next event.  If you have had success with these color combinations, we would love to see your ideas!
