What did you do for your kids? Vincent has no idea what he wants. I need ideas.

We had some of Stephen's friends and some adults with whom he's friends over for a very casual BBQ. In the end, maybe 30 people. It was about a week after graduation; didn't work to do it the weekend of graduation. By the end of the evening, the kids were all sitting around playing Apples to Apples! The night of his graduation, we took him out with family to one of his favorite restaurants (a BBQ place...see a theme here?).

we have an open house type party (drop-in anytime between x and y o'clock) and serve a buffet of heavy hors d'oeuvres and invite family, family friends and friends of the graduate

We did nothing for highschool - neither kid wanted anything, although most people we knew had drop in type parties. College graduation for Courtney was a low country boil for her and her friends. It was what she chose.

we did more low-key celebration with just extended family. And with even that, Ryan would have been fine with less, lol. Now, my youngest son, I can see him totally wanting a drop in type of thing. We'll see!
