It is graduation party time and many grads and their parents are planning parties to celebrate. One of the biggest tasks is planning the graduation party menu.
A graduation party is often a mix of adults and young adults. You’ll want to please both palates. Food needs to be both sophisticated and also fun. Some graduation parties may choose to have a casual menu – like a barbecue. This is an ideal choice for summertime. Fun choices can be to add shiscabobs so guests have something they can carry around and eat. Finger style foods will also be popular.
Another popular choice for a casual party is a giant submarine sandwich. This is a great way to please a large crowd and feed many people. Add to the sandwich a variety of delicious “side” dishes that will appeal to people, things they can eat with a fork like potato salad or macaroni salad or even potato chips or tortilla chips.
For a more elegant party, consider the cocktail party style. hors d’oeuvres can be passed and guests can drink alcoholic and nonalcoholic drinks. This can be a very sophisticated party. Hors d’oeuvres can be fancy like stuffed mushrooms, shrimp wrapped in bacon, scallops and Thai chicken.
