✦Prom and Graduation Ceremony or Party Supplies:

Years ago, my friend Hanna taught me the value of celebrating the little things in life as they arise. These tough times do not call for cutting out partying. On the contrary, these are the times we need to embrace friends, family, and community, and join together in celebration. Today, more than ever, schools need to develop creative ways to raise funds Justify throwing a donor thank you party not only as astute marketing tool but also as an act of patriotism since you will be contributing to the overall growth of the economy. Elementary school classrooms now try to integrate class parties into the curriculum, so check with your child's teacher for his/her input prior to planning the whole party.  Remember to keep it simple, keep it age appropriate, and keep it meaningful.  As for proms and other dances … give yourself enough time.  Let Party Idea Pros walk you through each step of planning your event by providing professional recommendations on all the little details. And if we forget something, feel free to remind us!

Don't let this memorable day fade away with the morning sun. The next day, when all is still fresh, log onto to create photo books, memory calendars, and even photo thank you notes. The photo books, in particular, are perfect for memorializing your event and are an easy way to keep an archive of your school history. Make a few extras to present as gifts to your extra generous volunteers and donors.
