There’s no prouder moment for a parent than watching your child walk across the stage to receive their diploma and seeing them transition their tassel from one side to the other. It’s a feeling that will stay with you forever. No matter the degree earned, it’s one that deserves recognition and celebration. Show the new grad how truly proud you are by throwing them the perfect graduation celebration.

Plan the Menu

When it comes to planning any kind of party, food is the most important part. It helps set the mood of the event and, of course, keeps your guests’ stomachs from growling! For a graduation party, focus on food that’s fun and easy. Consider Publix Deli Chicken Tenders or a Publix Deli Sub Platter. Both are crowd pleasers and – best of all – easy!

Don’t forget the sweet treats! Our bakery offers a variety of platters that will take care of all of the sweet cravings. Our bakery associates are trained to help you find the perfect platter for your party. The great thing is that you are able to customize your platter varieties and even colors. Want green and white icing on your brownies and petit fours? No problem. We can change the theme of your platter to your school’s colors.

Simply bring your ideas to the store and our teams will help you figure out every detail. If you’re running short on time, you can place your order using our Online Easy Ordering platform.
