Graduation Party Food & Fun-- Ideas from your Favorite Columbus, Ohio Caterer!

 

With 33 years of Graduation Party Catering under our belt, we here at Made From Scratch have an idea or two of how to make your party a success. And unique, to boot. Keep on reading for some interesting ideas.

 

 

5 Ideas to Make Your Graduation Party

Fun, Unique, and DELICIOUS.

 

 430253 10151034674053786 605458218 n 224725 10151034669148786 2035919511 n guests at smore station

1. S'mores Station. Making s'mores is always a good time. Our Signature S'mores Station was built exclusively for us, and it is done right. No harsh chemicals from a sterno burner. We have a hose built into the bottom of the burner, and we fuel it using propane (just like a real grill). A beautiful row of flame lines the center of the grill. Add our homemade strawberry, chocolate and traditional mallows, and you've got yourself a delicious treat!

 

 

 Dirty Franks signage dirty franks toppings Dirty Franks hot dog 

2. Dirty Franks Hot Dog Station:

As Dirty Franks' exclusive catering partner, we are the only caterer in Columbus who can bring this ridiculously awesome hot dog station to your party. Dirty Frank's famous all-beef Vienne hot dogs and poppy seed buns, served with DF cole slaw, tots, Boston baked beans, and a crazy amount of toppings to make your fave dog right off the Dirty Frank's menu. You could also serve up food from some of the other Columbus Food League restaurants (Tip Top Ohio Nachos, anyone?!).

3. Photo Booth Fun! Our Photo Booth really is top of the line, and for a limited time only, we are offering the booth for only $650! Research shows that this is one of, if not THE, most competitive prices in Columbus, and definitely the biggest value. With state-of-the-art digital technology, top notch photos, props, customization and an attendant, your guests are sure to enjoy this one with 5 hours of unlimited photo booth fun!

4. Festival Fun! Bring out the fun food stations--Flavored Ice, Popcorn, Cotton Candy, Shaken Lemonade Stand--and throw in an inflatable slide, ring toss or a dunk station. It's funny how quickly all of your guests will slip right into "kid mode"--it's a blast! Also, be sure to check out our Summer Spectacular menu here

 

 

   

keep calm and play on

 lifesize jenga pop a shot

 

5. More Games! Laser Tag, life-size Jenga or Kerplunk, maybe even a Pop-a-Shot or video game arcade. A perfect way to bring some excitement and entertainment to your party (and trust us, nobody will forget this one!) Your guests, old and young alike, will not want to leave the party. Happy playing!

 

  

 

 

Feel free to share your ideas with us! And, of course, give us a call if you want us to bring any of these awesome elements to the next Columbus, OH Graduation Party that your're hosting! Quotes are complimentary, as always.

Our Favorite Recipes Using SNOW!

We certainly aren't nearing a shortage of snow, especially if you're on the East coast ;) Frustrated with the difficulty of doing what is normally a simple task, like running up the street to grab milk? Show the snow who's boss. Trapped in your house with 3 feet of snow outside your door?  Eat your way out. Bored & run out of things to do on your snow day? This is for you.

We've collected some of our favorite recipes that call for snow--eat your heart out! 

 

1. Allrecipes.com Snow Ice Cream.

2.The Kitchn has a recipe for making Maple Syrup Taffy. Drizzle over snow and it will harden instantly, making a delicious candy treat. We tried this with the honey from our beehives:

 

 

3. Kool Snow Slushy: Grab that Kool-Aid from your pantry and sprinkle it over some (fresh) snow. Easy. Delicious. And really just kinda fun. 

4. Ever heard of snow pancakes? Yeah, us either. Until now. We're definitely trying this one. 

5. This Raspbery-Blueberry Snow Cone recipe by Epicurious is really just a fancy snow cone, but gourmet enough to serve at your next dinner party. Plus, it's a fun hands-on activity for you and your guests, kids, whomever. (Substitute the shaved ice for snow, of course!)

 

Go get 'em! Try some of these out--have fun, and be sure to let us know how it goes. Stumbled upon creating some fun recipes of your own? Tell us about it!

And, of course, don't forget that your favorite caterer isn't afraid of the snow. No snow days for us-- we're fulfilling your catering order rain, snow or shine. So, for your next board meeting, after-hours event, fundraiser, baby shower, wedding, birthday party---you get the picture--give Made From Scratch Catering, TBDCITL (the best damn caterer in the land) a call. Supporting Columbus, Ohio since 1983.

TIPS FROM CHEF TOM
November Edition
 

If you are cutting apples in advance, keep them in a container completely covered with Sprite/7up. The citric acid in the soda will prevent the apples from turning brown and, unlike lemon juice, it will not make the apples tastes sour. The more you know.

 
HELPING OTHERS

For the past 20 years, Larry Clark, President, and Made From Scratch have donated equipment to Better Way Ministries to assist their mission during Thsanksgiving.  Better Way Ministries serves over 5,000 meals to the poor and homeless at their inner city location on Thankgiving Day.
