Graduation Roses - Throwing the Cap

May 8th 2019

At this time of year and especially here in California students and families are preparing for an event that marks a particularly poignant moment in their lives, the graduation ceremony. For many it signifies the end of childhood and formal parenting and a bright new future.

Ceremonies for graduating students date from the first universities in Europe in the twelfth century, since that time different traditions have developed around the world. When you finally earn your college degree, graduation is an exciting opportunity to celebrate all of the hard work you’ve put into your education. It gives students and their loved ones an opportunity to recognize a significant achievement. In most graduation ceremonies students dress up in special graduation robes and ‘mortar board’ caps, normally hired specially for the occasion. Graduates pose for photos and often gather together after the ceremony collectively throwing their caps into the air, a celebration that recognises that all the hard work has paid off.

One of the best ways to celebrate graduation is to go out for dinner after the ceremony with close friends or family. It is popular and so reservations need to be planned well in advance. It is on these occasions where graduation gifts come into play. For most, once the robes and the caps have been handed back, the only tangible item to signify the event is the graduation scroll. This is where the graduation gifts come in.

Many people choose to throw a party which is a great way to gather friends and family around to congratulate the new graduate. These parties often become grand occasions with outside caterers and another occasion where there is a wonderful opportunity to provide special gifts.

At OnlyRoses we recognise that graduation celebrations are truly memorable which is why we have curated a special collection of graduation gifts for these occasions.
