Graduation Time is Here!

It's Graduation Time!

With graduation time quickly approaching I wanted to be sure to give you some ideas on how to make your celebration a good time for everyone...including the host and hostess!

I will be throwing two graduation parties this season just for my own family and I know the key to making them a success is preparation and simplicity.

So a few ideas may help.

Before you do anything, think about the graduate. Take in to consideration their likes and dislikes and their personality and plan around that. Choose decorations, your menu and entertainment that suit the graduate. This is a party to celebrate them and their accomplishments.

Some easy ideas to consider:


  • A BBQ - Chicken & Ribs, burgers & Dogs and BBQ Chicken are all fairly easy ideas.

  • Chili and Salad - having a few types of chili and a variety of salads is a great idea. Add fresh bread and you've got a great meal.

  • Pizza & Pasta - cooking in advance makes it all so easy. Just heat and serve.

  • Subs & Salads - Either a sandwich bar or ordering a 6 ft. sub where your guests serve themselves keeps it simple and so good.

  • Appetizers & Desserts - Having a variety of appetizers and desserts is pretty simple if you plan it right. Use heating pans or serve cold appetizers.

Decorations & Invitations

I buy on-line to keep it simple. Some of my favorites are:
