If you have a son or daughter who will be graduating from high school or college this year, it’s time for a party! Don’t stop at any regular party when you can have the ultimate party with the help of custom props from Big Apple Props. We make custom foam props for parties of all types. If you can imagine it, we can make it! You can also choose from out prop rental stock for your party decorations. In this week’s blog, we’ll look at a few possible themes you could use with for a graduation party.


Sophisticated Graduation Party

You can take the serious route and celebrate your child’s graduation from high school or college, but that doesn’t mean it has to be boring. An Asian themed party is sophisticated, yet beautiful. We have rental items that enable you to put on an Asian-themed party easily. Rental items that would make the party a gorgeous celebration include a golden, sparkly Buddha, cherry blossom screens, and Shinto gates that can tower over thrones of honor. We also have an Asian-themed cart with a red pagoda roof and custom backdrop. Extra decorations can be fans and paper parasols and paper lanterns.

Life is a Circus

What theme could be better to top off the craziness of their final semester than a circus! We have lots of rental props for a circus theme. Our elephant will set the theme of the three-ring party! Big top tent decoration of red and white stripes are easy to on any scale and are a very forgiving decoration to do. We have a carnival themed cart that acts as a table for snacks and cake. A mini ferris wheel and carousel ponies are adorable and add to the festive feel of any party. We also have strong mad and trapeze artist props with cut out holes for your guests to stick their heads in for hilarious photos. A carnival ticket booth would be perfect for your guest of honor to sit in to greet guests. We can also make a customized sigh to celebrate the big day.  Ideas for custom items could include a foam diploma with the graduate’s name on it. This would be a great keepsake as well. Food ideas to go with this theme are easy too. Rent a cotton candy machine, a popcorn maker, and a snow cone machine for the graduates to feel like kids once more before they head to college or into the job market.

Welcome To the Jungle

Now that your student has completed all their work and gone through the graduation ceremony, it’s time to relax before they start the next phase of their life. We think a Welcome to the Jungle theme is a fun tongue-in-Cheek way of celebrating this rite of passage. We have great jungle-themed props that you can rent for a Welcome to the Jungle party! This would be an easy party to decorate for. Head to the party store and get tropical themed items. Tropical flowers and vines are a great starter. African wildlife can add some fun to the party. We have a zebra, a lion and an elephant that would impress guests and get everyone in the celebrating mood!
