Celebrate the Graduate

Graduation season is in the air. Are you planning to celebrate the new graduate by throwing a party at home to get them ready for their next chapter? Whether you’re seeking party supplies or gifts, Dollar General has everything you need to throw the most memorable grad party ever.

Decor and Supplies

Select a color scheme for the celebration that’s appropriate for your grad: gold, silver, black and white all tend to be popular colors. For a cohesive theme and easy cleanup, go with disposable party plates, beverage napkins, utensils and party cups. Then, set the table with a silver and gold disposable table cloth and party foil confetti for extra table flair.

Wanna go big? We’ve got chalkboard flag banners, streamers, gold confetti balloons and hanging tissue paper decorations to add to the party decor. You can also set up a photo booth and provide guests with props, string spray and squawkers to pose with.


Graduation season is the start of summer which makes it the perfect time to celebrate at home with a cookout or barbecue. Fire up the grill for a graduation feast of hot dogs, hamburgers and grilled veggies. Plus, don’t forget a variety of cookies, chips, trail mix and candy. Save on snacks by shopping private brands like Sweet Smiles™ and Clover Valley™! Look for the brands that carry a 100% satisfaction guarantee.


Find gifts for the new graduate all in one trip. From tech to home decor, give ‘em gifts that will come in use in the future. If your grad is heading off to college, you may want to consider bedding, decor or school supplies that provide practical and affordable options. Gift cards can also be a wonderful surprise. Don’t forget gift bags, tissue paper, wrapping paper, greeting cards and other gift packaging essentials.

And remember: celebrating graduation is a fun time to recognize the graduate and their accomplishments, but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
