Do you have a Graduation Party that you need to plan? If not a graduation party, perhaps a birthday party. Well, we just attended my cousin’s high school graduation party and it was A-MAZING!!! It had the most unique theme….. It was a WAFFLE THEME!!! I must say I am not a huge fan of waffles, and was a little disappointed when they told me the theme because I’m not a fan of traditional waffles…I know I know, I’m crazy. Once I got to the party, my mind was quickly changed. This so called “waffle” theme was taken to the next level.
Waffle Themed Graduation Party
They hired a waffle truck to come. Yes, for real…..a truck that made waffles inside of it. Like one of those food trucks that drives around town.
The waffle truck not only had regular waffles, but it also had waffle fries, ham and cheese sandwiches with the waffles as the bread, peanut butter and jelly waffle sandwiches, and egg, gouda, and ham waffle sandwiches. My son got a peanut butter and jelly waffle and my daughter got a regular waffle…
On the table next to the waffle truck they had all the condiments….
Isn’t that the cutest houndstooth bucket? If you look a little closer, you will notice the syrup inside the bucket and the custom label….
My cousin’s name is J.T. … the “Pure J.T.” is in reference to “Pure Michigan”. Have you heard the “Pure Michigan” commercials?
Ice Cream Truck with Waffle Cones and bowls
At a WAFFLE themed graduation party…waffle cones and bowls are a must!! My cousin worked at an ice cream parlor during summer vacations while in high school, so of course they knew to have all the toppings…strawberries, blueberries, sprinkles, chocolate sauce. I decided to go with a summery option…. Vanilla ice cream with strawberries and blueberries in a waffle bowl…..what is your favorite? Waffle cone or waffle bowl? Fruit or no fruit? Oh man just looking at this picture is making me hungry for some more!!
Coffee and Specialty Drink Cart
What is a waffle themed graduation party without a coffee and specialty drink cart? ha! So, Of course there had to be one of those!
Decisions, Decisions…My first round was an Italian Soda of some sort..I’m thinking berry? I just told the girl I wanted a really delicious Italian Soda, so be creative. It was quite tasty whatever she made. While I was at it, I also indulged in a Caramel Frappuccino…my cousin and his girlfriend sold me on one. Seriously though, when is the next time I’m going to see a drink cart like this? I’m glad that I did because it was quite a delicious drink!
Graduation Party Decorations
Oh yes friends, there is more! Let me give you a brief tour of all the creative ways they decorated for my cousin’s graduation party.
I loved seeing all the pictures from when he was little and they even had a beach ball that he got from his Kindergarten Class. I thought this was a cute idea…all the kids in the class signed each other’s beach ball and that was their present to take home with them for summer vacation.
This wreath hung on the front door. Those are all his graduation pictures.
Graduation Cake and Cupcakes
The Graduation Cake and cupcakes were very clever….he graduated from Penn High School…the lady who made the cake and cupcakes embellished them with different activities that he was in.
Graduation Party T-Shirts
My cousins like to make t-shirts for different events and this wasn’t any different….
We are so proud of my cousin and his many accomplishments.
We look forward to watching him learn and grow throughout his next four years as well!
