The school year is ending soon, and it’s time for graduation. From celebratory balloons, flowers and gifts to party catering and delicious desserts, Strack & Van Til is your one-stop graduation station.
Visit the Floral Department for flowers and balloons galore to present after the ceremony. Give your graduate a fresh bouquet available for grab-and-go in their school colors or bright and colorful options like the grad poms bouquet, single roses or the gorgeous graduation bouquet.
“Order ahead of time in-store or by phone and a trained designer will handcraft an exceptional custom presentation bouquet,” says Floral Department Director Jen Knoche. “You can order other floral arrangements and balloon bouquets online at strackandvantil.com/shop-floral, with free delivery on orders over $30.”
The Floral Department is bursting with balloons! Graduation-themed balloons in various sizes, shapes and colors, including stick balloons to add to a plant or fresh bouquet or a floating balloon that makes a statement. Graduation-themed plush stuffed animals are available, too.
What graduation would be complete without a party? Strack & Van Til has everything you need to congratulate your graduate. Begin with custom table centerpieces made with flowers from the Floral Department. Next, plan your menu with help from the Deli Department and cap it off with cake and treats from the Strack & Van Til Bakery.
Check out the Deli Department’s “Entertaining Made Easy” flyers for catering menus, in-store or online. Select from our famous hand-breaded or grilled chicken, a la carte entrees, party trays and charcuterie appetizer solutions.
Customer favorite entrees include mostaccioli and meat sauce or meatless mostaccioli, Italian sausage and peppers in marinara sauce, Polish sausage and kraut, baked ham with pineapple glaze, barbecue rib tips, Certified Angus Roast or Italian beef and, of course, Strack’s famous fried or grilled chicken and mashed potatoes.
Is the party a barbecue? The Strack & Van Til Deli Department has the perfect sides, including macaroni and cheese, baked beans, potato salads in a variety of styles from American to Steakhouse and an array of pasta salads.
Party tray options include premade sandwiches and Hye Roller wraps, party wings, taco layer or spinach dips, gourmet cheeses, fruits and vegetables, freshly sliced meats and cooked shrimp.
“Our catering menu has something for most everyone, but if you prefer something different, we’re happy to create a custom menu,” says Deli Director Kristin Snow.
Party tray and a la carte entrees start from 10 to 20 people and party packages are priced at a minimum of 25 people or more.
When the meal is finished, the dessert is the icing on the cake – the graduation cake, that is. Celebrate your grad’s big day with a custom cake from Strack & Van Til! These made-from-scratch cakes are not only delectable, but they’re also beautiful.
“We can customize your cake or individual cupcakes with an edible photo of your graduate,” notes Bakery Director Tim Calderone. “There is no limit to the creativity at your local Strack & Van Til Bakery.”
The bakery also carries an assortment of pre-made, graduation-themed cakes, and you can order from hundreds of designs in-store or online at strackandvantil.com/catering/order-cakes-online.
Don’t forget to pick up other bakery treats including Our Homestyle cookie platters, famous signature butter cookie platters, brownie and cupcake platters and large message cookies that can be customized by the Bakery Department’s expert decorators.
Wishing a “hat’s off” and congratulations to all this year’s graduates from the folks at Strack & Van Til.
