Prom Night Menu Ideas

A few Prom Night Menu Ideas to help with the after-prom party planning.

It’s Prom season once again! As a parent it’s fun to watch plans being made celebrating another year of school coming to an end, but, if you’re like me, you want these young adults to be safe while celebrating. We’ve offered to host an after-prom breakfast or get together of sorts at our home. While I’m not sure if my daughter thinks we’re cool enough to accept the offer, I’m going to go ahead and start thinking about menu items for the evening if it does happen to end up at our home.

While we’re thinking a breakfast menu would be fun, we do know other parents who serve a huge dinner before prom for a group of students. How cool is that?!? A post-prom dessert party sounds like a sweet thing too.

Whatever you’re thinking, I’ve put together some ideas for different menu spreads.

If you have any ideas to share, I’d love to hear them too!

Bacon and Brie Quiche – Go ahead and make a few of these. The chaperones will want more of this one!

Coconut Pancakes – Of course, any pancake or waffle will do when young adults are involved, but these are a nice twist on the basic pancake.

Melon Fruit Salad – While it’s such a small amount, you may substitute amaretto flavoring or vanilla extract for the amaretto.

Cheddar Biscuits from

And bacon, of course! Also from


Whatever plans end up being for your young adults on prom night, we’re praying for a fun, but safe and responsible evening for all!

    Great ideas — my parents made us after prom breakfast many years ago and so I kept the tradition and did the same thing for my girls — so much fun and such great memories! But boy can teenage boys pack away the food (keep this in mind when planning your menus lol)

    Awesome ideas! In our small town, there are no restaurants within 30 mies, so the parents of the junior class cook for the entire prom! That was 63 meals this year, including a few teachers and sponsors! We served chicken cordon bleu, rice, green beans and a delicious cake we called “ooey gooey cake” because it is called “better than sex cake” on my recipe card! The kids requested root beer floats, too! Lots of fun for the kids and the parents all work together and have fun in the kitchen! Your ideas are awesome and I wish we had them last month when we were making plans.

    My parents offered prom dinner at our house many moons ago. We had so much fun and it was much more relaxed than at a restaurant. They served steak with bleu cheese crumbles, baked potatoes and a salad. Dessert was simple but delish cupcakes, decorated in our school colors. Fun memories!!
