Delicious Food and Drinks for Your Graduation Party

Planning a graduation party menu that satisfies everyone can be a challenge, but it’s also one of the most exciting parts of the process. Here’s what to consider:

Menu Planning

  • Types of Menus:
    • Buffet: This is a popular choice for larger parties as it offers a wide variety of dishes and allows guests to serve themselves.
    • Plated: A more formal option where guests are served a predetermined meal at their tables. This is a good choice for smaller gatherings or if you want a more structured dining experience.
    • Stations: This interactive option allows guests to customize their meals from various food stations, offering a fun and engaging dining experience.
    • Family Style: Similar to a buffet, but platters of food are placed on tables for guests to share, creating a warm and communal atmosphere.
  • Popular Food Choices:
    • Appetizers: Finger foods, dips, sliders, skewers, and small bites are perfect for mingling guests.
    • Main Courses: Consider grilled favorites, pasta dishes, tacos, or a carving station.
    • Desserts: Offer a variety of options like cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, fruit platters, or a sundae bar.
    • Dietary Considerations: Ensure you have options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, or other dietary needs.
  • Theme: If you have a theme for your party, consider incorporating it into your menu choices. For example, a luau theme could feature Hawaiian dishes like pulled pork and pineapple skewers, while a fiesta theme could include tacos, guacamole, and churros.


  • Non-Alcoholic: Offer a variety of refreshing drinks like iced tea, lemonade, sparkling water, and flavored sodas.
  • Alcoholic: If you choose to serve alcohol, consider beer, wine, and a signature cocktail or mocktail for a festive touch. Remember to check local laws regarding serving alcohol at private events.
  • Age Considerations: Provide options that are appropriate for both the graduates and their younger siblings or guests.

Catering Tips

  • Budget: Determine your budget for food and drinks early in the planning process.
  • Caterer vs. DIY: Decide whether you want to hire a caterer or prepare the food yourself. Catering can be more convenient, but DIY options can be more budget-friendly.
  • Food Safety: If you are handling the food yourself, be sure to follow proper food safety guidelines to ensure the health of your guests.

By following these tips, you can create a graduation party menu that is both delicious and memorable.
