How to Host a Graduation Party at Home

Graduation season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate your graduate’s achievements than by hosting a memorable party at home? With the Speed Cleaning method, you can quickly prepare your house for a celebration that’s both fun and stress-free. Here’s how to plan your party, clean efficiently, and ensure everything goes smoothly.


  1. Set a Date and Time: Choose a date and time that works best for your family and guests. Consider whether a daytime or evening event suits your needs.
  2. Create a Guest List: Write down everyone you’d like to invite. Send out invitations a few weeks in advance to give guests ample time to RSVP. 
  3. Plan the Menu: Decide on the type of food and drinks you want to serve. Finger foods, appetizers, and a few main dishes work well for a party. Don’t forget to accommodate dietary restrictions and preferences. 
  4. Decorations and Supplies: Order or purchase decorations that match the graduation theme. Balloons, banners, and tablecloths in school colors are great choices. Ensure you have enough plates, cups, utensils, and napkins for all guests.


1.  Decide which rooms your guests are most likely to spend time in and concentrate on just those rooms. If there’s time to clean elsewhere, fine. 

2.  Declutter the most important rooms. This step alone can make a huge difference in how a room looks and it certainly makes it easier to clean. 

3.  Clean the bathrooms first after decluttering in case you run out of time before guests arrive. Bathrooms are the exception to the “good enough” rule. They should truly be clean and smell clean. Keeping a tote bin under the bathroom sink stocked with cleaning supplies like Speed Cleaning’s Red JuicePro Scrub, paper towels, etc., makes this quick cleanup easy. 

4.  Then clean the kitchen to the best of your ability, even though you’re simultaneously preparing dinner for a crowd. 

  • Vacuum or sweep the floor 
  • Run the dishwasher or put clean dishes away 
  • Clean the sink 
  • Wipe the counters 
  • Empty the trash can 
  • Wipe up visible marks and spills on the floor 

5.  Moving on to the other important rooms, dust working from the top down. The light fixture over the table might be something that doesn’t get a routine dusting, so be sure to include that. Speed Cleaning’s Flexible Microfiber Duster is perfect for dusting delicate surfaces as well as large surfaces quickly and easily. 

6.  Lastly, vacuum. Then you can get yourself ready for your guests and greet them at the door relaxed and smiling. And if something didn’t get done – say it with me – oh well!


  1. Create a Flow: Arrange furniture to create a good flow for guests to move around easily. Set up food and drink stations in accessible areas.  
  2. Entertainment: Prepare a playlist of your graduate’s favorite songs to play in the background. Consider setting up a photo booth with props for fun pictures.  
  3. Delegate: Don’t hesitate to ask family members for help with tasks like refilling food, greeting guests, or cleaning up spills.  
  4. Prepare Ahead: Cook or prepare as much food as possible the day before the party. This will free up time on the day of the event for final touches and relaxation.  
  5. Relax and Enjoy: Once the party starts, relax and enjoy celebrating your graduate’s accomplishments with friends and family. 

By following the Speed Cleaning method, you’ll have your home party-ready in no time, allowing you to focus on making lasting memories with your loved ones. Congratulations to all the graduates and happy hosting!
