To Party or not to party

So... my latest dilemma...

My daughter is graduating from high school... 

What to do about a graduation party?

Do I just have it at my rinky-dink house with a very small backyard?
Have it at my cousin's house in New Boston?
Have it at my dad's house?
Have it at a hall?
Or not have one at all and just give her the $$ I would have spent?

See here's the thing, I love throwing a party!  LOVE IT!  It is sooo much work.  Having it at my house would be easiest but I'd love to have it at my cousin's house, but would I hurt my dad&stepmom's feelings because my dad did, in passing offer his house because of his yard, or do I have it in a climate controlled hall?

Oh brother.

Perhaps have it at a neutral place? We don't have family living here so when my daughter graduated we had her party at a nice local park where we rented a picnic pavillion for just $15 (this was in 1998). We made it a potluck and invited her friends and our church and it was a great success.

Just a thought. I hope you'll all have a great time! ...Debra
