  1. 1

    Shop for balloons at a party store. Store employees will inflate the balloons with helium and tie ribbons to them. Plan to have four to five balloons for each of your centrepieces.

  2. 2

    Fill large gift bags that have handles with candy to weigh the bags down. Select gift bags that have a graduation theme or match the school colours of the graduate.

  3. 3

    Tie four or five helium-filled balloons to the handles of each of your gift bags.

  4. 4

    Place each arrangement in the centre of your tables. Tell your guests to help themselves to the candy in the bags.

  1. 1

    Purchase helium-filled balloons and flowers that match the graduation theme or colours. Purchase one vase for each of your tables.

  2. 2

    Create a floral arrangement in each of the vases. Put a vase at the centre of each of your tables.

  3. 3

    Arrange four to five balloons for each vase. Because the balloons are attached to long ribbons you can arrange the balloons at varying heights. Attach a bunch of balloons to each vase. You can do this easily by tying the ribbons around the base of the vase.
