Commencement Ceremonies 2016 0

We’re just getting ready to turn the corner on the spring holidays and head into graduation season.  In our community, there are commencement celebrations for elementary students moving into middle school, for middle school students moving on to high school, for high school students who will begin their college or career experiences, and for local college students. Every town, village, and city within ten miles any direction from the party store is having a graduation celebration between May 17th through June 17th (a list of commencement dates is at the end of this blog post). Graduation parties are a joyous, memorable time. Grandparents and parents gather round to mark the right of passage from one life phase to another. The children are happy because they know their summer break is about to begin, and almost everyone is excited about the prospects of moving on to something “bigger and better.” Planning a graduation party is easier today than ever before. You can visit our Card & Party Giant party store online to get ideas about what’s available. You can stop in the Glenview party store and check out the inventory that will fill the shelves as the Easter holiday party decorations and supplies are rotated off the floor and graduation party supplies take a place front and center! Card & Party Giant is your local party store for graduation party supplies with a large selection of 2016 Graduation party decorations, cards, balloons, custom banners, and more at the Glenview store. Call ahead for balloon orders and deliveries.  In addition to party supplies and other party incidentals, Card & Party Giant also has chairs and tables for rent, and offer a limited selection of local school logo party supplies (OLPH, Loyola, Glenbrook South, Glenbrook North).
