POST-IT party for the grad

I am so excited about this idea because we all use Post-it® notes {my sister Jenna is about as obsessed as Oprah} and what a relevant product to decorate a party with for a new grad. The colors are bright. The ideas are endless. The cost is affordable. The cuteness is unbearable. Here are some of my ideas ~ now I just need a party to put them into action. Anyone want me to plan their Post-it® Grad Party? :)

David Stark is a genius planner {his recent book David Stark Design looks fabulous} and I am so impressed with his Post-it® decor on a recent episode of The Nate Berkus Show episode and a party seen below.
{yes, those are vases covered with colored pencils, rolling hills with pencils and post it notes and pencils for guests to doodle at each place setting ~ all of which are totally doable for a grad party}

This David Stark DIY Fridge Project featured on Design Sponge provides excellent how-to details for a Post-it® backdrop for your upcoming grad party, or simple fridge decor.

I absolutely LOVE Chris from Celebrations at HomeA Bright Future‘ graduation party. Because Post-it® Notes are bright, some of her ideas would work wonderfully with our party theme. You must check out her entire party post here, but for now make sure your guests can enjoy bright-colored candy {to match your Post-Its} placed inside light bulbs in honor of your ‘bright’ child. Chris, you are so creative.

This Post-It Mini Clipboard for $4 by Acarrdian Cards on Etsy would be an adorable favor for friends to take home.

For all your single minglers or forgetful minded guests {like me}, your guests can exchange numbers at your party with these Post-It-shaped Watches available at Paris Boutique PA Design for $13.60

Create a Post-it® Note tree or wall where people can grab notes individually and write notes of advice to the new grad. Once they write a note, have a table close by with a 8.5×11 book for 6 spots per page for Post-it® Notes. It will serve as a ‘guest book’ for the grad to keep forever.

Other ideas:

Work with Jenna at Fleur de Lis, a paperie, to create a Post-It Note Invite. She can work with you to design it. I promise it will be cute.

Design a background that says ‘congrats’ with Post-Its, along with Post-It message, like Martha Stewart did in the top photo on kraft paper.
