Graduation Party Food Ideas


Deciding the graduation food menu can be a difficult task. But if a well advance plan is laid out, the graduation food can be the best your guests ever had! The key to this is "Keep it Simple".

  • Serve only five to seven different menu items.
  • The graduation party food items depend on the time and type of the graduation party.
  • Take some help-ask your graduate about his choice of food, as he also knows what his friends like.
  • Catering to his choice will make him feel all the more special!

Tasty Dessert Ideas

  • Candy bars with personalized wrappers to give out to your guests.
  • Smores at a fire pit is a great idea. Provide several baskets full of marshmallows, chocolate bars and graham crackers. Have plenty of roasting sticks on hand.
  • Cakes are a must for the great graduation party. Order the new photo cake for display and make a second one to cut and serve. Decorate the cake with wafer diploma, mini graduation cap and #1 sign.
  • Ice cream sundae bar- serve ice cream with different toppings, fruit, cookies, and coffee. Its easy, fun and guests will love it.
  • Serve cheesecakes in a variety of flavors with different toppings. For example: hot fudge, strawberries, blueberries
  • Everybody just loves chocolates so order gold foil-wrapped coins with your graduate’s name on one side and the year on the other.
  • Try Root beer floats this time. It will be a sure hit amongst the guests. Scoop vanilla ice cream into plastic cups and freeze them overnight. Then at the party all you have to do is add root beer and a straw.
