Graduation Party at Venue 901

Oh, the places they will go!

What a perfect event to kick off Venue 901 party scene – a combined graduation party!

Claire, Matthew, Hayle, Reed and Andy are off to college in just a few short months, and their families decided to celebrate together at Venue 901. We were thrilled to welcome them to a fun Saturday afternoon get together and lunch!

What graduation party would be complete without college swag?



This group of grads are off to LSU, Auburn, Mississippi State and Christian Brothers University, and you could definitely tell when you arrived. Venue 901 was the perfect backdrop for all college themed party goods you can imagine. The kids’ parents delivered party goods and swag from their favorite school to Currie McAlpine, our Event Producer, and together with the adorable centerpieces were made by Holliday Flowers and Events and the custom cookie name cards by The Painted Cookie that we used for placement, every detail was perfect.

Today is Your Day.


Moms arrived with balloons and take home goodies for all! Each of the graduates received copies of Oh the Places You’ll Go by Dr. Suess books, along with candies, cards, and more. Our guest tables provided the perfect place to display all the awesome graduation party gifts.

Our boxwood walls provided the perfect backdrop for the bright red metallic 2019 balloons, perfect for graduation photos! Don Lawler took some awesome pics for memories that will last a lifetime!


You’re Off to Great Places!


Each table was set with a family style sausage & cheese platter with eco friendly boats, so that when they arrived guests could mingle, have a bite and visit the bar for lemonade, unsweet tea or an Arnold Palmer. We had adorable college theme cups and beverage napkins to keep the Off to College theme alive!

Currie completed our Corky’s sausage and cheese platter with custom flags and shake.

For lunch, we served a buffet that included a build your own BBQ sandwich plus a great salad, fried chicken nuggets, which were a HUGE hit, and mac and cheese!


For dessert, we had awesome hot fudge sundae bar with our infamous “Momo’s Hot Fudge” sauce, cherries and whipped cream!



You’re off and away!


A graduation party to remember. After such a great afternoon together, we wish these kids the best of luck in the future, but can’t wait to see them all back in Memphis!
