Grad Brunch

After all of the BBQs and dinners, some yummy breakfast food will be a nice twist. Have all your friends over (tell them to wear their pajamas!) and serve only breakfast foods. It will be just like you just woke up from a sleepover, but you'll actually be well-rested! And get creative with your menu! Use food coloring to make bright pancakes and waffles, serve fruit pizzas, and make a bar for DIY breakfast "sundaes."

Sweatshirt Party

Boring backyard BBQ's just got way more interesting! Invite friends and classmates over for a fun dinner, but with a twist: Everyone needs to wear a sweatshirt from the school they're attending in the fall. Plus, it's an awesome excuse to chat up your crush about his new college.

Game Night

It sounds so obvious, but having everyone over for a chill night of karaoke, board games, and old movies will be a big hit! Rent your fave movies or old-school cartoons, and whip out some fun childhood games, like Chutes and Ladders, Monopoly, and Life. Give out cute prizes for the winners, like nail polish, candy, or a $5 Starbucks gift card.

College Themed

Introduce friends to your new college by throwing a school-themed party! Is your college in a city that has a signature cuisine, like Chicago's deep-pizza, or New Orleans' Canjun? If so, serve it at your party! Does your new school have a kickass football team? Make a football-themed photobooth, with your school's jersey, mascot and a field goal backdrop! Your friends and fam will love getting to know the spot that's going to be your home for the next four years.

Carnival Night

Give your besties a night of games and yummy food by turning your backyard into a carnival. Since renting a ferris wheel might be just a little tricky, recreate some simple-but still super fun-games like ring toss, darts (pin mini balloons to a bulletin board!), and corn hole. Serve carnival faves like popcorn, corn dogs, pretzels, and candy apples!
