Do you have a recent grad in the family worth celebrating? A graduation party may seem like a simple and straightforward affair to plan, but you’d be surprised by the number of things you need to consider such as the decorations, activities, and the types of foods you need to serve. The first step is, of course, to choose a theme that matches the interests of the grad and creates custom decorations that help set the mood for the event. Of course, no party is complete without our list of top 5 treats you should serve at a graduation party!
Freshly Baked Cookies
Nothing brings back nostalgic memories of childhood than freshly baked cookies, and without it, no graduation party is truly complete! You can opt to bake chocolate chip cookies from a pre-made mix or a personal recipe, but if you know you’re not the best cook, there is a much better option– the Black and White Cookie Company. They have a wonderful selection of kosher cookies with yummy vanilla and chocolate frosting on top. The 14-pack mini black and white cookies are perfect for a party where the majority of the guests will be standing!
Buttercream Frosted Cupcakes
Coupled with cookies, buttercream frosted cupcakes are among the most popular desserts to serve to grads. If you have a theme all picked out for the graduation party, you can opt to bake or purchase custom cupcakes that blend in with the overall feel of the party. In fact, cupcake toppers and colored sprinkles can set the mood for any event!
Pizza with Popular Toppings
Now that you’ve given everyone a boost of sugar, it’s time to add a bit of salt to the diet. Pizza is not just affordable, but an easily recognized staple food in every American’s diet. For the purpose of saving money and ensuring that the pizza is bite-sized, you may wish to slice the pizza into smaller pieces to fit onto a platter. Finish off the pizza pieces with decorated toothpicks to match your event.
Home Popped Popcorn
Popcorn is yet another favorite to serve alongside the infamous pizza. The great thing about popcorn is that it can be salted and buttered, but it can be found in other flavors as well. Depending on how much sugar you really want to serve, you may add caramel or chocolate. However, if you prefer to stick to salty, popcorn can be found with powdered cheese on top!
Lastly, it makes sense to provide a treat that everyone can eat in the form of flavored chips. Sour cream and onion or regular chips are great appetizers, and they can fill everyone’s bellies on a budget. If you’d like to mix things up a bit, pour different flavored chips into a large bowl and give everyone the element of surprise.
When choosing treats to serve at a graduation party, make sure to consider the personal favorites of the grad being celebrated. The foods described above by no means serve as a comprehensive list, so feel free to mix and match as you like! Contact The Black and White Cookie Company today for more information.
