Graduations are a BIG DEAL and a great reason to celebrate!

If you are looking for graduation party ideas  you’ve come to the right place. I’ve done the legwork for you and gathered links to foods, desserts and decoration ideas for you to consider.

With over 30 food ideas and a dozen ways to decorate for your graduation party – there is something for everyone.

DECORATIONS | DESSERTS | PARTY FOODS | CHEESE, VEGGIE & CHARCUTERIE BOARDS | VEGAN, VEGETARIAN & GLUTEN FREE

As an artist and digital designer for Cricut and Silhouette machines – I love working on the decorations. Food is always the harder part of a party for me so finding all these amazing food and dessert ideas made my mouth water. 

Whether you want to make decorations for the table or graduation candy stickers with your cutting machine – I’ve got ideas for you.

If you want wings, gluten free, vegan, vegetarian – cheese trays or charcuterie boards – I’ve got links for that too.

Here are quick links by category – I hope this helps inspire you for the big day! If you try any be sure to leave a comment so I know how it went (and what I should try first.)
