5 Tips for Hosting an Unforgettable Graduation Party & Catered Menu Options

  • Posted on: 18 March 2019
  • By: Brian and Mick

Spring is in the air, and graduation season is upon us! As your graduate is busy finishing up the school year to prepare for their big day, it’s time for you to do some prep of your own: by planning their graduation party.

Here are 5 simple tips for hosting an unforgettable graduation party, and some of our favorite menu options!

1. Keep it Simple with a Backyard Bash 

Stressed about choosing a venue? Consider hosting the graduation party in your own backyard for a simple, budget-friendly option! 

 Luckily, spring and summer months are ideal for outdoor events in New England, and you can always rent a tent if you’re concerned about the weather. This way, your party will be a hit – rain or shine!  

2. Create a Crowd-Pleasing Menu 

While you’re busy planning out the party details, take the weight off your shoulders by hiring a caterer to handle the food. Who wants to be busy prepping and reheating food in the kitchen on their child’s big day, anyway? 

B & M Catering specializes in Clambakes, Pig Roasts, and BBQs, which are particularly fitting for backyard bashes! Our New England Clambake, Backyard Barbecue, and Chicken & Pig menus are all surefire crowd pleasers for graduation parties. 

Looking to customize your menu further? We’ve got hundreds of delicious a la carte items as well to accommodate your needs and dietary preferences!  

3. Choose a Fun Theme 

Choosing a theme can be a great way to keep the party-planning organized and flowing! Once you land on a theme, you can have fun with your graduate picking out matching décor, games, and favors. Feel free to get as creative as you’d like with your graduation party theme, sending out matching party invites to prepare your guests for a good time! 

Stumped on a theme? You may want to consider a classic summertime favorite – a Hawaiian-style Luau – complete with colorful leis for guests, a Tiki Bar, Reggae music and our Hawaiian Luau menu (featuring pulled pork, teriyaki chicken with pineapple, a tropical fruit medley and Tahitian punch).   

4. Turn Up the Beats! 

Keep the party going strong with lively music! Have your graduate send over a list of their favorite bands and artists, so you can create a playlist that suits their personality. Depending on your budget, you may want to consider hiring a local band to play live music to really wow your guests!  

5. Be Sure to Have Party Games for Your Guests!

Game on! What’s a party without some good ol’ fashioned games? Corn hole, KanJam, bocce, croquet, and volleyball are some of our favorite outdoor party games for all ages. A little healthy competition never hurt anyone, after all!

Here’s what people are saying about B & M Catering…

It has been almost two weeks since your company catered a clambake for my son's graduation party and the compliments have not stopped coming our way.  The staff, Jim, Matt, and Chris were very organized professional and hardworking. Their unwavering efforts that met our guest every need were a perfect match for the delicious food that was served that afternoon.  My wife and I look forward to having your company serve us at a future event.”

-George K.

I worked with this business from out of state to arrange a backyard BBQ graduation party.  In every respect, they were easy to work with, helpful, and friendly.  By the time I got to the house after graduation, food was set up and guests being served.  At the end of the party, leftovers were wrapped up and stored in the fridge, and everything was left clean.  No problem substituting a vegetarian option in one of their standard packages.  The food was simple, well prepared, and nicely presented.  A nice business may use them again for graduation number 2 next year.

-Gena M. 

We decided to cater our daughter's College Graduation party and had to find a caterer.  We found great reviews online for B&M and also heard from others that they used them with success.  We decided to give them a try and I'm so glad we did.  They were extremely helpful in selecting a menu and defining how much of what I would need.  We ordered from their a la carte menu and everything was delivered hot and on time.  The delivery driver was very professional, friendly and eager to help.  The food was exceptional and we received rave reviews from our guests.  Give them a shot, you won't regret it and when you do, make sure to order the Corn Bread, it's amazing! I give B&M an A+ all around!

-Karen K.

B & M Catering made our graduation party absolutely seamless! They were great in early planning, answering our many questions, working around our changing menu and needs. Once on site yesterday, their team was efficient, professional and fun to work with. The best part was the food!  Everything was delicious, and the cornbread was the best I have ever tasted.  Highly recommend!”

5 Tips for Catering Your Office Breakfast & Lunch Meetings

  • Posted on: 24 February 2019
  • By: Brian and Mick

Hurray, you’ve been given the honor to coordinate your office meeting!

As you’re checking off all the boxes, first things first – have you nailed down a menu?

There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a meeting with no food, and frankly, donuts and coffee aren’t going to cut it this time.

Whether you’re organizing a “Lunch and Learn” or morning coffee hour, become everyone’s office BFF with these simple tips for catering at the workplace!  



  1.  Confirm the RSVPs

There’s nothing worse than running out of food, or on the flipside ordering way too much and having it go to waste! Be sure to check in with your coworkers to confirm the headcount before placing your order.  

This will help you plan accordingly, and save some money depending on how many people you’re expecting! For instance, at B & M Catering, we offer reduced pricing for larger quantities of people. Alternatively, our Baby Buffets are a great choice for a smaller staff meeting of 12-15.  

  1.  Be Mindful of Food Allergies & Dietary Restrictions 

Go the extra mile to ask your coworkers about food allergies and dietary restrictions! This will help you craft the perfect menu, and ensure there’s something for everyone – including your vegetarian boss and pregnant colleague. 

We’re happy to help answer any questions regarding food allergies, and come up with a custom menu that works best for your group!  

  1.  Consider the Time of Day 

When planning your menu, you’ll want to consider the time of day! Spruce up your morning coffee hour with a surprise Breakfast Buffet like the “Hot Shot Breakfast” which includes favorites like scrambled eggs, bacon, home fries, fresh fruit, and of course coffee.  

If you’re planning a lunch meeting, our Box Lunch & Sandwich Menus are surefire crowd-pleasers. With four different menus to choose from, options range from classic sandwiches (like roast beef and tuna salad) to unique varieties (like the Caprese Wrap and Chicken Cordon Bleu). Accompaniments include fresh fruit, homemade cookies, coleslaw, salad, and chips. 

breakfast catering food choices


  1.  Don’t Forget the Beverages (and Dessert)  

Don’t forget beverages…and no we’re not talking alcohol! Meetings can take a while, so make sure everyone stays hydrated. Our Box Lunch & Sandwich Menus all include soda or bottled water, and individually bottled juice – orange, cranberry or apple – is part of our Brunch ‘n’ Munch Buffet. Keep your coworkers caffeinated (and happy) with some hot coffee, and don’t forget dessert to win everyone over! Our homemade cookies should do the trick if we do say so ourselves. 

  1.  Make Setup a Breeze

To make your life simpler, all of our buffet menus include sturdy disposable plates and utensils, a plastic covering for the buffet table, disposable serving utensils and condiments for an easy-breezy setup. After all, you work hard enough and don’t need yet another thing to add to your to-do list!
