We’re all for celebrating recent grads with a party that’s complete with sweet treats, vibrant decor, and endless fun. So, we rounded up a few of our favorite DIYs from across the web, that’ll turn your upcoming fete into the ultimate summer-friendly blowout.

Graduation is a cause for celebration, and no celebration would be complete sans a photo booth. This balloon-turned-marquee lettering sign is a must-try.

Popsicles and summer go hand-in-hand, and we’re all for cooling off with these colorfully fruity treats from Paper & Stitch.
How cute is this paper flower graduation tassel? Think of this DIY from The House That Lars Built as the grad version of a birthday cap.
No pool? No problem. Throw it back with a kiddie pool that can double as either decor or a spot to cool off in. Bonus points if you add in some inflatable toys.

We love a good palm centerpiece, but when they’re hard to come by, a little creativity is in order. These paper palms and greens created by The House That Lars Built. make for quite the vibrant and whimsical table display.

Bring out the lawn games, and even try your hand at DIY-ing a few. This cacti-inspired take on a ring toss by Brit + Co guarantees hours of entertainment. 

Bring the outdoors in with a vibrant (and very much over-the-top) floral chandelier. On the plus side, you can opt out of a centerpiece for the tabletop.

Dress up the snack table with these printable popcorn boxes created by Design Is Yay. They can also double as parting gifts for guests. 
 
Mini balloons double as the sweetest set of adornments for a standard set of straws. Pair with an eclectic variety of sodas or juice, and take your bar cart setup to the next level.
