Personalize based on your grad's favorite colors, school colors, or even team colors. The options are endless!

Don’t forget about dessert: A celebratory cake or tray of cupcakes are traditional ideas you can complement with other selections, such as a colorful M&M'S candy bar with personalized M&M'S or pre-designed "Class of 2022" M&M'S, to add some variety. Be sure to purchase dessert plates, napkins, and flatware that matches the party’s color scheme for a coordinated look.
