Your child is graduating from high school! Congratulations! Now it’s time to throw their graduation party so you can celebrate with family and friends. Make it special and hire a full service catering company so you can be sure to have excellent food, drinks, and setup, and so that the party will be stress-free.
Below are some essentials to planning a graduation party.
Set A Budget.
This is the critical first step. This will help to determine the type of catering you can afford, as well as the kind of food. Because the food is the most important part of every party, this will help to decide on the theme of the party as well. Be sure to have a budget set before you speak with any caterers. They will be able to give you a more precise quote, and they will be able to start planning a potential menu.
Set the Date.
Many families book weekends for graduation parties, so setting the date as soon you can is best. Schedule a meeting with caterers in Boston and discuss their availability. You don’t want to plan on a caterer without a date because they may have already booked with another family. Having great food is the key to a successful graduation party, so it’s important to allow plenty of time to book your ideal caterer, you don’t want to settle on second choice.
Pick the Location.
A graduation caterer can often accommodate any venue, however, not every venue allows outside catering. This is an important step in booking your graduation party catering. Many parents choose to host the celebration at their homes and some rent a banquet room, hall or even a public beach or park. Discuss location ideas with your graduation catering company so they can start planning accordingly. Location can often affect the menu.
Your theme may be decided on type of food you have chosen with your caterer. Some examples are a Mexican Fiesta, Luau, or BBQ. Professional graduation catering companies provide set-up services, so take advantage of their party-planning expertise for something that looks professional and fun, and stress-free.
Now that you have set a budget, booked your catering company on the chosen date of choice, and chosen a fun theme for your party you’ll be sure to have an event that is memorable for years to come!
