Graduation Party Catering Tips

Graduation is a time to celebrate the achievements of your graduate and their hard work. Throwing a graduation party can be an exciting event, but it can also be overwhelming when you’re trying to figure out the perfect menu for your guests. Village Catering is here to help with our top tips for great graduation party catering!

Finding the Perfect Appetizers For a Graduation Party

When it comes to appetizers, there are many options that will please any crowd. Stock your coolers with a variety of soda options, bottled water, and alcohol for the adults if it’s that type of party. Consider serving classic finger foods like mini pizzas, sliders, or tacos. You can also include some healthier options such as vegetable platters or fruit trays. If your family and friends have a taste for seafood, consider offering scallops wrapped in bacon or another seafood-inspired appetizer.

Planning the Perfect Menu For a Graduation Party

When you first sit down to plan a graduation party, it’s an exciting time where you have all sorts of ideas for decorations, food, and location. When planning the menu for your graduation party, keep in mind what type of cuisine would best suit your guest list. 

If you’re looking for something unique and special, consider regional dishes from your graduate’s new hometown or school colors in tall vessels, jars, and small bowls. You can also just ask your graduate of honor what they prefer – perhaps they love Cajun cuisine or lobster boils! Whatever they’re favorite food is, making sure the honored graduate has a meal selection chosen to match their tastes is a great way to celebrate their accomplishments.

Buffet Suggestions for a Graduation Party

If you’re looking for buffet suggestions for your graduation party catering needs, consider selecting assorted tray packages that will offer guests a variety of foods to choose from. You could also create your own buffet with items like salads and sandwiches or hire a food truck if you’re looking to serve something more unique!

Desserts and Sweets For a Graduation Party

No graduation party would be complete without desserts! Consider candy favors shaped like diplomas or mortarboards as well as cupcakes decorated with school colors or personalized messages. If you want something more elaborate than cupcakes but still easy to eat on-the-go then cake pops are always popular at parties!

By having the perfect dessert layout to serve your guests, you’ll ensure partygoers have a wide range of edible delights to indulge in.
