Tinley Park Catering Graduation Tips

Salina's carries everything you need to have the best Tinley Park graduation party of the summer. Whether you're celebrating a middle school, high school, or college graduation, Salina's has been one of Tinley Park's top caterers for almost 20 years. We know that planning the perfect graduation party can be stressful, so here are some helpful tips from our catering experts.

Tip #1 Call in a few weeks in advance to reserve the catering delivery time you really want.

Due to the numerous catering orders we have during graduation party season, delivery times may become booked quickly.
By contacting us in advance about what time you will want your food delivered, we can ensure your time slot. If you wait to reserve your delivery time, you may have difficulty getting the delivery time you want.

Tip #2 Order for the exact number of people you're having

Don't over or under order. It will leave your guests hungry, or leave you with mountains of leftovers. Salina's has very generous portion sizes. We frequently receive comments from customers that they had the perfect amount of food when they ordered for how many guests they were having. 

Tip #3 Plan to serve dinner at least one hour into the party start time

Don't have your catering delivered before your guests arrive or right when they are getting there. It is best to wait a minimum of an hour into the graduation party to serve the meal to allow latecomers a chance to arrive and everyone time to get settled in, try some appetizers, have a drink, and mingle a bit. Salina's provides a 30 minute catering delivery window to make specific meal times in Tinley Park a reality.

Plan a Party and Book Tinley Park Catering in 3 Easy Steps

Are you planning a graduation party or backyard wedding? Booking your caterer should be your next order of business once you have selected the date of the event. Read on and follow these three steps on how to choose your caterer.


Step #1 Establish a budget for your party.


Before you start buying supplies for your party and placing your Tinley Park catering order, come up with a price range that you would like to spend on your party. By estimating what you are comfortable spending before you start planning, it will be easier to get a general idea of how much of your budget you can spend on the food and any necessary rentals.


Step #2 Go with a Tinley Park Catering Business that can take care of all of your party needs including your rentals.


Trying to secure rentals and food for a party can become a hassle. Make things easier on yourself by selecting a catering company with the ability to take on all of your catering needs including the food and rentals. Whether you are hosting a large backyard party and are looking to rent a tent along with tables and chairs, or if you just want to add something special to your child’s birthday by renting a snow cone machine, select a caterer that can fulfill your rental needs along with your food.


 Step #3 Choose a diverse menu to appease all of your guests.


No matter how large or small your party is, offering your guests several food options is always a smart idea. Keep in mind that some of your guests may have special dietary needs that require them to eat vegetarian or gluten free foods. Vary your food menu and choose a caterer that is equipped to provide you with a large selection of delicious food items that guests with special dietary needs can enjoy.
