5 Graduation Party Menu Ideas

5 Graduation Party Menus

It’s that time of year! Graduation season is right around the corner.  I’ve got a son graduating from high school this year.  I’ve been working to come up with a menu for his party.  In the process, I’ve got 5 different menus to share with you.  I hope these ideas will help you plan your celebrations.

Read to the bottom for all the dessert ideas!  I wanted to add them separately, instead of one for each menu.

Easy and Casual BBQ Feast


BBQ Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker



Potato Salad


Homemade Baked Beans in the Slow Cooker

Asian Broccoli Salad

This is the menu I am most likely going to use for my son’s party.  It’s easy.  The pork can be made ahead of time and frozen, then heated in the crockpot.  The baked beans cook in the crockpot and are easy to put together.  The only thing that will have to be done the day of the party is toss the dressing on the Asian Broccoli Salad.

To this, I’ll add desserts and probably potato chips.  I may also add cut fruit.

Menu Ideas for Graduation Parties

Raise your hand if you have a new graduate this year!

A year ago, I was planning my oldest daughter’s high school graduation menu.  I’ve noticed quite a few people searching for ideas for recipes to serve at graduation parties, so I thought I’d put together a list to get you started.

There are so many ways to celebrate a graduation.  I’m not even going to try to cover them all.  Casual is what I’m most comfortable with, so this list will include foods that can be served buffet style, can be fixed ahead of time, and serve a crowd.

Today, I’m cooking.  And cleaning.  And list checking.  And hopefully crossing things off the list as they get accomplished.

My oldest daughter is graduating from high school tomorrow.  After the graduation ceremony, we’re hosting a lunch reception for family and friends.  Here’s what I’ll be fixing today:
