Graduation Party Candy Buffet {Free Printables}

by | Jul 25, 2019 | Graduation, Printables | 49 comments

When I ran across the idea for a Graduation Candy Buffet I knew we had to include one for our boys’ high school graduation party!  Here are some of the types of candies I used:

I was going to use “You’re No Dum Dum” for the suckers, but one of my daughters insisted on “So long Suckers” instead. It cracked the boys up and they know we are all going to miss them dearly. 

There are lots of additional options you can use as well:

  • “Class Ring” – Ring Pops
  • “Smart Cookie” – Mini chocolate chip cookies
  • “Nerds” – Small boxes of Nerds Candy
  • “oFISHally Graduating” – Swedish Fish
  • “Thank you Kisses” or “Goodbye Kisses” – Hershey Kisses

If you’d like to use my signs, you can download them here

I also made a little sign to go along with our Diploma Cookies made with Pirouettes and some of the leftover Cherry Twizzlers Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy from our Graduation Cap Cupcakes!

    I used two sets of the Better Homes and Gardens Galvanized 4 Piece Serve Caddy: I bought them at Walmart for around $8 each.

    How do I print the signs? What kind of paper should I use? I've never done this before…It should be easy but I make things harder than they are. LOL. Anyway, any help/tips would be appreciated. What kind of paper should I purchase at the craft store? After I download it, then what? thank you so much for posting this and helping me out. Missy 🙂

    I just printed them onto white card stock 🙂 Some of them are attached to skewers the others are folded in half like a card so they stand on their own.

    Thank you! I think I used picmonkey to create the printables. I'm sorry I don't have an editable file to share!

  11. Jessica Gordon

    So I just looked up my old files and I actually did make one for goodbye kisses! Is the email address you used for this comment a good one to send it over to?

    What size was your stock paper

  15. Jessica Gordon

    I'm sorry, I can't remember :/ I'll do a little digging and see if I can find it. I believe it was one of the options in PicMonkey.

    Thank you so much for sharing your adorable signs. I am using all of them. I printed them, glued them to card stock and folded as tents. I’m just finishing them. We have our daughter’s graduation a week from now. I was hoping I might be able to get the Class Rings sign as well. I purchased Ring Pops and was hoping there might be a template so I could make it, but saw in comments here that there isn’t I don’t believe. I also purchased animal cookies and was hoping to make “Class Pet” sign as well. LOL Any chance I could get directions to make, a template or the class ring sign?

    Thank you so much again!

    • Jessica

      I am sorry I wasn’t able to help you out in the time frame you needed! Congratulations on your daughter’s graduation!

  32. Lisa

    Hi! Thank you for sharing your signs! They are great! Would you happen to still have a sign for the Class Rings? I thought that was cute to add to the rest of the candy. If you still have it, I will send you my email address. Thanks so much!

    • Jessica

      I do! I’ll email it over to you.


    Hello, can you share the other signs not in your original download? Thanks so much!!

    • Jessica

      I sent it over to you! I really need to get it uploaded to dropbox 🙂

  34. Kim

    Hello-I absolutely love your signs and have already purchased most of these candies. The only one I purchased that I do not see a sign for in your original download is “oFISHally Graduating.” Do you happen to have a template or have since made one for that candy?
    Thanks for your time. I appreciate your help.

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
