Pinning Ceremony


I'm class president and our class is in charge of planning our pinning. We have a location, date and time (2-5pm). I'm wondering what we should serve? In the past, some classes have had just cake and punch and some classes have hosted a full luncheon. Any ideas? Also any ideas of things your class is doing or did in the past that worked really well (or really bad!) would be great too! Thanks!

You guys are lucky. We aren't allowed any refreshments...

I also JUST posted a thread like this one, I havent had much response though. I am also planning my classes graduation and pinning ceremony.

What I have planned so far is to hold the pinning ceremony at our campus, with a slide show and a humorous powerpoint. After that we will announce that we are holding an after party at a different location (we are deciding between three local restaraunts) We have a local bakery in our town who was willing to donate a sweet tray (instead of a cake). This way guests can buy dinner and drinks if they wish and it doesnt come out of my $200 budeget the university gives me. We will also serve coffee and tea to go with the sweet tray. I am also having class sweatshirts made for everybody. And because my class didnt want to order the traditional pins I had some buttons made up for everyone. We are also going to do senior superliatives during the pinning ceremony!
