The Perfect High School
Flags and Banners for Class Reunions
A lot of pieces have to fall into place when you’re planning a high school class reunion. You have to figure out where you’re going to host the gathering, you have to make sure there is plenty of good food to eat and beverages to drink, and you have to hunt down all of your classmates so you can send them an invitation.
You also have to make sure the environment is festive, and it doesn’t hurt to give classmates a little something to take home with them either!
There are many ways to decorate and many things you can hand out, but few have as big of an impact as flags. That’s especially the case when you opt for custom flags from a professional flag maker, like The Flag Makers, that offers so many different flags and customization options.
When it comes to high school flags, pennant flags are sure to bring back memories. Although this style of flag can be used in a variety of situations, they are most commonly found in school hallways and the bedrooms of teens. Why not bring back the nostalgia of your youth by decorating with these time-honored flags?
Pennant flags can be used to decorate the walls inside the hall and they can be hung from the ceiling. High quality, custom flags with your school name and mascot can be raffled off or given away as gifts. Get creative and decorate different kinds of pennant flags to represent special events, like dances you remember when you were a student, as well as flags of your most heated rivalries.
Pennant flags are popular in school hallways, but bannerettes are equally as popular. They are a dressier, more formal alternative to traditional high school banners. They are also more likely to be seen in offices and colleges, making them a good option for college class reunions.
Banners can feature your school name and mascot, but they can also display activities, winning sports teams, individual class members and their awards, and more. Flag colors, string, and fringe can be customized to reflect your school colors.
They are a great way to decorate, but they make great awards too. Pass them out to successful graduates as a reward for all their hard work, or give them as gifts to former teachers as a way to say thank you.
If you’re planning on hosting a large crowd, you need flags with impact. Surprisingly, smaller is sometimes better. That’s definitely the case with hand flags.
One hand flag can be passed out to attendees before a gathering. They can be waved during speeches at a class reunion, but they can also be a lot of fun at an alumni night, as they are a great way to identify school alumni at a high school football or basketball game.
They can also be used as decorations. Organize them in a centerpiece or use them as place settings. When the evening is over, guests can take them home as a souvenir!
Personal gifts are a great way to thank former classmates for coming to your high school reunion. There is no limit to the kinds of gifts you get can get, but ones that remind them of their time in high school are a lot of fun.
Most students are proud to display their attendance at their school with things like letterman jackets. That pride doesn’t subside just because you’re an adult! Enable classmates to continue showing their affiliation with their old school by passing out bandanas and scarves at your reunion!
Consider getting creative with the items you pass out by making them part of the decorations first. Hang scarves over the back of every chair or drop bandanas from the ceiling when you drop the balloons at a reunion dance.
Not only can they be custom printed by a professional flag maker to feature your school colors, you can also give them a personalized touch. Do you remember signing T-shirts and decorating sweatshirts with puff paint when you were in high school? Why not lay out markers and puff paint and let your classmates decorate their own scarves and bandanas!
