Want to have a nice food bar for your next party or event? Want to have a central focus when it comes to the food you serve? Want a fun, trendy theme for your food? Then doing a food bar is a great first step when it comes to impressing guests with food.
Your next step is to pick a theme. This should be the easy and fun part of planning an event or party. Just think about it, does your event already have a theme? Events with built in themes include: Bridal Showers, Baby Showers, and Holidays. If your event does not already have a theme then you get to choose what you like. You can choose themes like: Hawaiian Luau, Pastel Colors, animal print safari, or deep blue sea.
Now that you have your theme it is time to decide what kind of food bar you would like to have for your event or party. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Impress your guests with fun and colorful candy in some beautiful clear jars and vases. Porter’s recommends using bright and colorful candy like gum balls, sixlets, and salt-water taffy.
Other great candies include chocolate covered sour cherries and chocolate covered cinnamon bears.
Hot chocolate bar:
Another great food bar idea is a hot chocolate bar. Include extra fun things like hot chocolate flavors, decorative mugs, and cookies to go along with the hot chocolate.
Chocolate fountain bar:
The last food bar suggestion is a great hit for any chocolate lover. All you need is a chocolate fountain and anything you want to dip into the chocolate. Here are a few ideas on what you can use: bananas, strawberries, marshmallows, cookies, rice crispy treats, and cake pieces.
Porter’s has fun cake pop molds and ideas that you can add to any food bar (especially the ones with chocolate.)
