Graduation Food Ideas

What matters the most to your grad at their graduation party? We’ll bet the answer is food. It’s the topic friends like to talk about because it’s what gets everyone excited about their graduation party. We wanted to share with you 5 graduation food ideas that are quick and easy to accomplish and will be a hit with your grad’s friends and family!

1. Tacos. At the All Star Graduation Party, we made a taco bar for guests to enjoy. It was pretty simple – all we had to do was cook the meat (a lot of meat) and have the rest of the toppings on hand. Just be sure to refill the serving dishes so your guests don’t think they missed out on your meal!

2. Sandwiches. Another simple graduation food idea is to make sandwiches for your guests like we did at the Glam Graduation Party. You could have guests make their own or have the sandwiches pre-made from them to grab and go to keep the line moving. This may require extra hands to make sandwiches ahead of time, but is less work on party day. Ideas for sandwiches: turkey, ham, roast beef, turkey supreme, tuna, meatball.

Recycled Cards: Make Something Beautiful With Trash

Happy Earth Day!
On Earth Day, we like to celebrate all things eco-friendly. Here at Pear Tree Greetings, we do what we can by creating most of our cards from 100% post consumer recycled paper. Sounds good, right? But what exactly is post consumer recycled paper?

Well, instead of making our signature card stock from wood pulp (trees) we make it from the recycled paper that you send to your recycling bins every week. That means we’re not killing new trees to make our paper, and we’re keeping it out of the landfills.

What’s cool is that when we say 100% post consumer recycled, that means all of it. Not just a little bit, like others claim. Most paper products labeled “recycled” are made from waste created by the paper and printing industries (pulp, scraps, trimmings and other material that has not been used by you or me) which may be good business for the company, but is not really considered recycling.

Graduation Photo Display Ideas: Affordable Custom Posters

Graduation photo display ideas
