I absolutely love rustic themed graduation parties. My own graduation party was rose gold and rustic!

Here are 12 rustic graduation party decor ideas.
Rustic Graduation Party Decor Ideas
Glass Drink Dispensers
Glass drink dispensers are surprisingly affordable! They look much more classy than plastic ones, they last longer, they’re better for the environment, and they fit perfectly in a rustic theme. This wooden table really finishes off the look!
Wooden Place Card Holders
These wooden place card holders are perfect for putting pictures in and adding to your centerpiece or using as centerpieces. I love how rustic the wood looks!
Repurpose a Palette
This Pinterest post showcases how simple it is to repurpose a palette. I love how in the picture above the palette is used to display the menu, although a palette can work to display pictures or label other things around your party.
This chalkboard easel is perfect for adding a welcome sign or writing out your menu. It stands up on its own, and the unfinished wood is perfect for your rustic graduation party theme.
Vintage Door Photobooth
If you’re able to find some old doors, they make a stunning photo booth. I would look at antique and thrift stores – even junkyards. So cute!
Burlap and Lace Tassel
Burlap and lace are staples of any rustic high school graduation party. This lace and burlap tassel looks amazing when strung on the top of picture displays or photo booths.
Galvanized Bucket Silverware Holder
Galvanized buckets just scream rustic. They’re super cheap, and you can repurpose them after the graduation party is over. I included some super useful chalk labels below, too.
Wooden Label Holders
These wooden label holders match the ones I mentioned previously that would look amazing in addition to a centerpiece. These shorter ones that come with the label paper are perfect for labeling food or beverages on the display tables at your party.
Floral Photo Booth
Floral elements work perfectly with a rustic high school graduation party theme. I love the blush pink of the background of this photo booth, and the flowers draping down it effortlessly tie it together.
This plain burlap banner is the perfect base to pain on a welcome sign, the graduation year, or anything else you want to display. Some simple letter stencils and sponging on some paint to match the rest of your theme is perfect for taking this banner to the next level.
Brown Paper Lanterns
Brown paper lanterns may seem drab, but I added them to this list to help you bring together the wooden elements that are throughout your party. Paper lanterns are affordable, and they’re large enough that they stand out.
Advice cards are a newer graduation party trend, and I think they’re a great idea. This allows the graduate to take some advice from everyone at their graduation party with them to college.
