A High School Stereotypes party can be one of the easiest – and most entertaining – college parties to organize. We’ve all experienced the ups and downs of being and living with those stereotypes, and throwing a party themed around this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate those clichés.
Even though you might not have to put the same kind of preparation into planning a High School Stereotypes party as you might for other college parties, taking the time to plan an event like this around your studying and other college activities can be tricky. iPartyGram is a new app that can help with the boring practical parts of organizing a party, such as inviting guests and managing RSVPs, so you can spend more time on the fun part: planning the party itself!
Sending the invitations
Once you’ve decided to throw a High School Stereotypes party, the next step is to send out invitations as soon as possible. Once you know how many people are coming, you’ll be able to plan for how much food and drink you need, so encourage your guests to respond quickly by setting an RSVP date.
Using iPartyGram, you can create a single invitation and send it to everyone you want to invite. This saves you money and time creating and posting paper invites, and also helps create more of an atmosphere than sending a plain text email. In the invitation, you can include details about which stereotypes guests could choose, and whether they need to bring anything.
When you send invitations through iPartyGram, guests receive their own unique log in code, so they can view party details and photos on the iPartyGram website and through the app.
Planning the party
When you have a general idea of how many people will be coming to the party, you can start planning decoration, food and drink.
To create a high school atmosphere, stick yearbook photos up on the walls. You can also use high school memorabilia, such as homecoming banners, trophies and other items you associate with that time. As most of the people coming to your party are likely to be around the same age, create a playlist of music you associate with that time.
A fun party game involves recreating the “Most likely to…” categories you find in high school yearbooks. You can put up a whiteboard with different categories (e.g. “Most likely to be a millionaire”, “Most likely to be a world leader”, “Most likely to be arrested”) and have guests write their nominations for each category. Then, near the end of the evening
Food and drink
Serve food and drink you used to have in high school. This includes soda, French fries, chicken nuggets, pizza, Jell-O, cookies, chips and so on. For an extra special touch, try serving food and drink on cafeteria trays.
The week before
You can use iPartyGram to create excitement the week before the party. Upload pictures of your preparations, or images of particular high school stereotypes in the days leading up to the party.
Planning a high school stereotypes is a lot of fun – even before the party itself begins! Make the process easier using iPartyGram so you can focus on having a good time and celebrating the golden years of high school.
