Food for Your Grad Party: What Everybody Wants to See on the Table

By: Chelsea Cozad

Whether you’re thinking of catering from a favorite restaurant or preparing everything by yourself, these are the top 6 items everybody wants to see when they arrive at your celebration.

  • Chick-fil-A Nuggets

Okay, even if it’s not a party who doesn’t crave these bite-size pieces of deliciousness? Trays come in small, medium, and large sizes so you can customize it to the amount of guests you’re expecting. Oh and don’t forget the sauces. I repeat: please do not forget the sauces. Polynesian, honey mustard, and of course the signature Chick-fil-A sauce are all necessary to pair with the nuggets. Chick-fil-A catering is foolproof way to make sure no friend or family member will go hungry at the big event.


  • Fruit Salad

A super simple side dish to prepare by yourself: cut up any and all of your favorite fruits, toss together in a decorative bowl and viola! A refreshing treat that satisfies all.


  • Chipotle

Grab a tortilla, or maybe you and your guests are craving a bowl; whichever it is, Chipotle catering has got you covered. The setup is simple: you can choose up to three of your favorite meats then you get fajita veggies, white and brown rice, black and pinto beans, all four salsas, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, guacamole, lettuce, and of course the chips. Guaranteed you won’t hear any complaints.


  • The Vegetable Tray

Grab the carrots, tomatoes, celery, snap peas, sweet peppers, cucumbers and any other veggies you love. Serve the tray next to sides of ranch and hummus. A staple for any event!


  • Mac and Cheese

Whether you choose a family recipe or to cater from your favorite spot, mac-and-cheese is a pleaser for guests of all ages!


  • A Candy Bar

No, I’m telling you to set out one Hershey bar. Instead, this is an easy, cute idea that will cure the cravings of all those guests with a sweet-tooth.  Take clear glass containers and fill with candies of your choice. Whether you want to stick to chocolate, sour, salty pieces,or a mix of all the choice is yours! Label each container and let your guests bask in candy heaven.
