My husband and I decided we would do my college graduation party at our home. My awesome mother (and I truly mean that) will be taking over most of it. Where she is from, they type of college education I have received does not happy to very many, so it is a huge deal for her and my dad. We have a basement that we are currently finishing with a bathroom and a bar. Upstairs we have a semi-open concept home was well. Mom thinks that if we rearrange for guests upstairs, almost like a lounge style, for guests who may struggle with the steps. We would set up downstairs as well and the backyard with games such as horseshoes and other simple ones to play.
We have between a tex-mex, "tea party" with salads, or a BBQ. What style do you believe would be the best and would it offend the guests if we had a two level party set-up?
