The Graduates of the Class of 2020 are worth celebrating!  We have to celebrate differently for a while – and maybe only with our qauranTEAM – but we can still recognize their achievements and show them our love and pride!

A few Graduation Celebration Ideas to Inspire.

Start the Day With a Graduate Worthy Breakfast

Start the morning celebrating your graduate. Whatever their favorite, make it special. Make it memorable. Try one of these tasty morning show stoppers.

PB & J French Toast

Bagel Breakfast Panini

Let the Party Begin.

The Front Porch Party

Balloons in school colors & flowers bouquets designed by our florists, custom sweet treats and graduation-worthy music (so that the neighbors can cheer along with you) will set the tone for bringing that diploma or degree into one’s home for the first time!

Tips: Try different styles of buffets for a quick and easy celebration. Start with your Grads favorite snack. The skies the limit!

1.  Grab a selection of desert from our bakery department or a selection of treats from one of our Market 32 patisseries.

2.  Try a popcorn buffet. Pop all the popcorn you can handle and then a rainbow array of toppings from sweet to savory. 

3. Try one of our wing platters for your group of party-goers.

4. Nothing but nachos. If you can put it on a pizza try it on some nachos. Pineapple and ham? Why not? BBQ chicken? How about Buffalo chicken. Try them all.

Just a few suggestions

Flowers

Don’t forget the flowers!

What better way to celebrate the day than a bouquet from our talented floral designers. Add them to a centerpiece, table scape or to brighten your grads day.

Ask about floral designs at the store near you.

Celebrate with balloons!

We offer balloons in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors so that you can add a festive touch your your graduation celebration.  Balloons can stand alone or they can add some flair and fun to your regular floral order.

The Grand Graduation Feast

Specialty catering platters give families the opportunity to hold an in home dinner worthy of the newly crowned.  With options for smaller sizes – there are fancy foods and drink for any graduate’s in-home quaranTEAM!  Remember it’s not the quantity of people at a meal, but the quality of the time spent with those closest to you.  Pamper and enjoy!

Tips: So many great platters to choose from. Order a few and add one of our tips to spice things up!

1. Heat and serve a meatball platter. Serve as is or grab some rolls and make mini subs. Add different cheese and sauces. Mozzarella and marinara combo, Alfredo and parmesan, pesto with fontina. You can also try different styles of pasta with a variety of sauces with any of our tasty meatballs on top. Say yes to a meatball tray!

2. Shrimp platters galore! Serve them as is with cocktail sauce or try one of our savory recipes. Yes it came on a platter but it doesn’t have to stay there. Get adventurous with our Mexican shrimp cocktail, or grab some wooden skewers and make a quick appetizer with tomato, basil, feta and Kalamata olives.
