Graduation is right around the corner. Your son or daughter will be throwing the cap off and getting ready to rock their new college environment. Why not bring it in the right way and step into the LimeLight?
A “Trunk Party” is the perfect send off. A trunk party is more of a going away party that also helps you, the parent, save a little cash. The idea of a trunk party is to get those dorm room necessities and toiletries your college freshman will need to make it through the first year.
Here are some great ways to personalize a trunk party for your college bound teen:
The decorations are always the fun part. Start with using their college colors for plates and napkins; as well as center pieces with bouquet of lollipops using the same collegent color scheme. You can also hang up a school flag or integrate the schools mascot into the decor, whether it is a bear or a cornhusker!
Place empty envelopes on a table with blank sheets of college ruled paper. Next, create unfinished sentences written on the front of each envelope like: “Open When you’re feeling discouraged…” Or “Open when you need to know how much I love you…” or “Open when you’ve aced your first test…” The party guest will choose an envelope with the unfinished sentence and finish it for your college bound teen to read when they are feeling homesick.
And don’t forget to make this a moment that is truly unforgettable for your high school grad.
These fantastic and cool party ideas are only a few. Don’t think you could do it on your own? We would love to help plan this very special send off with you. For more great tricks of the trade from Limelight Expressions, please subscribe to our blog.
