Yikes, somehow I am old enough to have a kid graduating high school this year! Not sure how that happened! DD doesn't graduate until June, but I am totally stressed already about the party! We've been doing lots of home improvements to get ready for it, now I think I'm ready to start thinking of the actual party. Which day is better to have it? Saturday or Sunday? We had planned on one Saturday, but now that appears to be the only date any of her friends have chosen. Dh doesn't think people will want to come on a Sunday. But other Saturdays that month don't work well. Are there any easy/budget foods? How the heck do you figure how much food you'll need or how many people will actually come? I'm a big OCD planner, so the idea of not having an exact head count freaks me out! Who do we invite besides family and dd's friends? Do students invite teachers? Do parents invite their friends if they don't really know the graduate? Any good (inexpensive) places to order invitations from? Thanks for any advice! Since we are the only person in our family/friends to have a graduate, I haven't been to a party in quite a while. I have no idea how they are now.
