If your planing on taking care of your parties on your own, let us give you a few tips that may
help out. Depending on the type of party and date, it can be very common in the case on
confirmation parties that many children will have them going on the same days, and at different
times throughout the day. What this means to you regarding your food situation is that, the
timing of your party could have a big impact on how many guests will eat, and even how much.
More often then not, parents order way too much food for their child's parting, thinking that
everyone will be eating that stops by, however reality is that the immediate family is generally a
for sure count, but once you get into other students family and so on that are also invited to other
parties, only a small portion of them will eat. Most likely adults will feel obligated to snack on
some items or try a piece of cake, depending on the time of the day.

to prepare and also easy for your guests to serve themselves. Very popular items that generally
go over well at confirmation and graduation parties are meat and cheese trays that let your guests
create their own sandwiches just how they want, and the best part is that it is cost effective for
you! Finger foods and appetizer type items also usually go over well because they are easy for
your guests to grab one to try and keep moving through the food line.
Drinks are fairly straight forward, however certain beverage types are sure to save you big.
Generally cans of pop, bottles of water, a small assortment of alcoholic beverages, and coffee
can be found at many confirmation and graduation parties. If you want to look for something
different, try some different types of teas, fruit juice blends, bulk juice containers, or even just
fresh pitchers of water with lemon slices or wedges available. You can buy gallons of flavored
teas at your favorite store and they can go over well depending on your guests preference. Fruit
juice blends are generally more healthy then sodas, and look great with the rest of your buffet
line. By filling your own glass pitchers with water, you can keep refilling them throughout the
party and save a decent amount of money rather than offering bottles of water which you will be
picking up half drank ones once the party is over.
