Grazing Station

Kick your kid’s grad party off in style with a crowd-pleasing table of finger food. Grazing tables are often the first pit-stop at any party, which keeps guests munching and satisfied while they socialize with each other. The best thing about a grazing station is that you can combine whatever food you want, and they’re especially ideal for an outdoor party.


This is all about food your guests can grab with their fingers. Or skewered appetizers because everyone loves eating from a stick. Or you can have heaps of different platters with crackers, cheese prosciutto, diced fruit, pepperoni, nuts, ham, and olives. And add some guacamole with fresh avocado, chopped onions, jalapeños, and tortilla chips. The options are almost endless!

BBQ Style

Everyone loves delicious   BBQ food like spicy hot wings and tasty hot dogs. We have several customizable menu options available including steak, seafood, vegetarian  Then there are all the different hot toppings, like chili, beans, cheeses,   and every type of sauce imaginable. We make it however you ask!

South Of The Border

If you’re keen for a more Mexican style of fiesta, you can offer your guests a wide variety of different authentic food. Maybe you’d like beef burritos with avocado and cilantro, chicken tacos with roasted garlic aioli, or pulled pork carnitas with shaved jalapeno. Another very popular idea is a build-your-own nachos bar with a wide variety of toppings to choose from.


When it comes to a buffet  , there’s always plenty of options for deliciously hearty and filling food. Like mini cheeseburgers stuffed full of toppings like smashed avocado, caramelized onions, chipotle aioli, and multiple types of cheeses. Or maybe classic honey chicken rolls paired with a mixed green salad with fruit or a potato salad. Another idea is a pasta bar filled with heaps of different types of pasta and a range of yummy toppings.

Dessert Time

While a cake is often a necessity for many graduates, there are many different ways it can be offered to guests these days. Maybe your graduate would rather a dessert station with cupcakes, donuts, or mini cream puffs. Chocolate fountains are another fun idea that’s often unexpected.
