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!
