Graduation Food Bar Ideas
The party season is about to get started and if you’re looking for graduation food bar ideas to cater for your guests at your party we’ve got you covered!
Food stations have been super popular at wedding these past few years and they’re a super simple way to cater any party, especially graduation parties!
You can serve savory options like pizzas or tacos.
Or set up dessert bars serving donuts or ice cream sundaes.
Or why not do both!
Before you choose a food station for your graduation party there are some things you need to consider.
If you want to serve ice cream can you keep it frozen? You’ll want it in a freezer as long as possible and then you can transfer it to buckets of ice when guests are ready to use the station.
For waffle or pizza stations you’re going to need someone to handle the cooking element. You could hire staff or ask some family members to help out.
