Title: Graduation party ideas for a pharmacist
Post by angiefunparty on Mar 14th, 2008, 6:13pm

My best friend is graduation college out of the pharmacy program as a  pharmacist.  I need some ideas for party favors and decorations.  I have a few but am wanting more.  Also some ideas for games we could play would be great.

Have you thought about getting pill bottles and making labels with the grads info, like a prescription? We did this for Nurses Week...huge success.  We filled them with M&M's.  They went over very well.

Her husband graduated pharmacy school last year and she did that very thing! If you think of anything else let me know!

For party favors you could contact your MD or local MD office and ask for freebies from the drug reps.  There is always a gazillion pens, notepads, stress relievers and the like lying around the medical offices.  You might even try and contact some actual drug reps.  They may be happy to get their 'medication' out there.

You can take advantage of these ideas

Here are the details, left to right, top to bottom:
1. One of the great vintage ads I found through a website online here. I literally found THE MOST amazing things on here, and they have ads for many different specialties! Iím going to buy some for myself also from the pharmacy section (since I teach at a school of pharmacy).

2. An old ad for AC-Demerol, which conveniently enough matched the party colors. Also from the website mentioned above. You can see part of the centerpiece- I used white hydrangeas, sunflowers, and a few other random flowers in arrangements throughout the house and outside.

3. The candy bar, featuring my husbandís favorite candies in the school colors, put inside of medical supply jars. I was especially fond of the pretzel sticks in the tongue depressor jar :)

4. The gift bags to fill with candy, which were just Kraft bags from Target in the party section. I bought stickers on-line at zazzle when they were on sale, and picked a style that matched the party invitations and gray color pretty well. The chalkboard container they are in (which instructed guests to ďfill a bagĒ was one I found at TJ Maxx for only $12. Score!

5. My cheesecake tartlets with a chocolate and almond topping. Delicious.

6. Container matching the favor bag holder that we used for utensils, topped with a burlap bow. Also from TJ Maxx, also only $12.

7. Adorable graduation banner from Etsy that I borrowed from a friend. (Thanks Casey!) Donít be ashamed to recycle cute things from generous friends. There are really only so many cute graduation decorations in the world. Letís not waste opportunities for practicality!

8. My beverage containers from Target with chalkboard labels. Great idea, but poor execution as the condensation from cold drinks make the chalk hard to read. Maybe use lukewarm drinks and fill the glasses with ice instead next time?

9. Mason jars (from Amazon- great price!) with gray paper straws (also from Amazon) on a Threshold tray (from Target) topped with limes and lemons to match school colors.

10. The vintage anesthesia tin I mentioned earlier, along with the textbooks I found on Ebay.

11. Okay, this was amazing. This is a feature from an EXCEPTIONALLY old newspaper from 1896 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first public anesthesia demonstration. My husband was so excited about this, and already put it back in its protective wrapper. So neat!

12. More party decor, and my lemon cream cheese cupcakes (because I apparently canít miss the chance to color coordinate desserts with party decor). But seriously, they were delicious. Recipe for icing here.
