Wording for a graduation party invitation can say "You are invited to celebrate John Doe's high school graduation on June 1, 2012, at 4 p.m. at his parent's house." A graduation party invitation should, at a minimum, contain the name of the graduate as well as the date, time and location of the party. If there is a party theme, such as a pool party or barbecue, that should be specified on the invitation as well.

When planning a graduation party, the hosts should first decide on the date, time and location. It is usually convenient to have the party following the actual graduation ceremony, usually with a few hours of leeway. This allows for guests who may have attended the ceremony to change clothes and gives the hosts time to get everything set up for the festivities.

In addition to the basic information on the invitation, there are other details that may also be helpful. For example, it is good to have an idea of how many guests may be at the party. This is when RSVP information is helpful. If hosts indicate a phone number or email address, guests have the ability to officially accept or decline the invitation. Another detail to consider is that of gifts. While it is traditional to shower the graduate with gifts, he or she may rather opt that donations are made to his or her favorite charity. If this is the case, that should be specified on the invitation as well.
