Fun Graduation Party Ideas on Artificial Grass Lawn

May 31, 2019

A graduation party should be a fun, positive experience. You don’t want a messy lawn to ruin it. That’s why an artificial grass lawn is ideal for this kind of event. An artificial grass lawn can stand up to heavy foot traffic. It won’t get sloppy if rain strikes. It’s ideal for playing backyard sports with guests, or for just lounging. To learn more about why an artificial grass lawn is perfect for a party, visit our team at any Watersavers Turf location.

Graduation Party Ideas with Synthetic Turf

Synthetic turf doesn’t require much upkeep. You never need to mow or water it. Thus, when planning a celebration, you can focus more on coming up with fun graduation party ideas. You’re likely to think up better graduation party ideas when you don’t need to worry about maintaining the lawn and prepping it for the event.

We’re happy to help. Are you planning an event for a recent grad in your life? Keep these graduation party ideas in mind:

Choose a Theme

A themed party may seem better suited to a child’s birthday, but it can help you plan your decorations more easily. For instance, you may decide on a “beach party” theme. Now you can add decor and features that match it. Add a volleyball net, and set up areas where people can sit or lounge on towels with snacks like they would at the beach.

Set Up Areas to Play

Look at the list of people coming to the party. Will there be any young kids? Set up a few games or activities to keep them occupied, like water balloons or bubbles. Add a few adult-friendly lawn games, too. Bocce and cornhole are smart options. You can even set aside a specific area of the lawn for football or baseball games. Synthetic turf gives you the freedom to offer these features without worrying that your guests will destroy the lawn.

Offer a Photo Booth

Odds are, your guests will take pictures of their own. Still, it’s nice to have an area where guests can take “official” photos with the grad. With a synthetic turf lawn, you’ll have the perfect vibrant backdrop for these photos.

Even More Artificial Turf Party Ideas

You don’t need to know a recent grad to enjoy coming up with artificial turf party ideas. This surface is perfect for any outdoor event! The following artificial turf party ideas show how you can take full advantage of your lawn during the warmer months.

Artificial turf party ideas worth keeping in mind include:


Want to give your friends the chance to “get away from it all” without heading off to the woods for the weekend? Turn your backyard into a campsite. Just keep open flames away from the turf if you plan on starting a fire; the heat could damage the fibers.

Golf Practice

Practicing your putting skills can be a fun social activity. With fake turf, you don’t even need to head to the golf course or range to do it. Add a putting green and have a party with your golf buddies. Offer golf putting challenges if you like to compete with each other. If you have kids, you could even transform the yard into a mini-golf course!

Cuisines of the World

Do you like cooking? Do you know others who do? Consider throwing a party in which each guest brings a dish from a different world cuisine. Fake turf is ideal for these types of events because it’s easy to clean.

Learn Something

Setting up a bar to serve cocktails and other adult drinks is always a smart way to make sure guests enjoy your party. Take an extra step by giving guests the chance to learn how to make a specific cocktail with unique ingredients. Offer a gift bag for each guess that contains everything they need to make it again in the future.
