Everyone knows that a good party requires a few key components, one of which is the snacks. Without proper snacks, you run into the problem of people getting hungry and leaving or even ill from not having anything to eat while attending. Rather than letting these complications ruin a perfectly good party, make sure that you’re set up for success from the start! We’ve rounded up a few snacks to add to your next party list to get you started.
1. Charcuterie Board
All the rage today, charcuterie boards are a great option for any party or get-together. They can be as intricate and expensive or cheap and simplified as you feel like. Making it even easier is the fact that you can buy many cheese plates ready to go, rather than going all out with a charcuterie board. However, if you’re feeling adventurous, search for inspiration before you get started.
You can conceptualize and have an idea of what you would like before getting started and then build out from there. Not only does it act as a work of art and conversation piece, but also a totally delicious treat for your guests to snack on while enjoying themselves. Just be sure to add something for everyone. Blue cheese, sharp cheddar, mild mozzarella, jams, different crackers, etc. The more variety = the more inclusive you can be!
2. Adult Snacks
For an adult get-together, you might consider offering infused snacks that can bring a touch more fun to the party. Whether it be alcohol-soaked gummies or decadent desserts infused with THC, there are plenty of options. However, as the host, it’s important that you are as responsible as possible. Examples of this include clearly warning guests that you have “special treats,” labeling them and completely separating them from the “normal” food. You are liable for your guest’s well-being so ensure you’re as safe as possible with every adult aspect you introduce into your party!
3. Dips, Dips, and More Dips
Nobody loves dips like those attending a party. They’re easy, munchable, and delicious. If you can, create a dipping area where guests can stand around snacking and conversating, or allow them to choose the dip they like and go. Some examples of this can be chips and salsa or bean dip, artichoke dip, and hummus with pita chips.
You might also choose to add in a sweet dip choice for guests. For example, cut up a variety of fruit and whip up a super easy fruit dip that pairs well with all the options. The best thing about having dips at a party is just how easy they can be. Whether you purchase the dips pre-made or you decide to make them ahead of time, you’ll enjoy easy cleanup and happy guests from start to finish.
4. Finger Food
If you’re looking for something a bit more hearty for guests, be sure to translate them into the easiest form: finger food. If you’re serving sandwiches, cut them into smaller pieces so that guests can easily enjoy them. You might also consider helping to portion out items so that no one needs to stand in line waiting to dish up something they want. Instead, there can be a grab-and-go method. Proportioning servings also ensures that there is enough to go around for everyone – a total bonus when serving a large number of people at once.
5. Carb-based Options
If you’re serving alcohol or other substances at your party, it’s important to have options that guests can eat to help sober up or feel better if necessary. Options can include plain crackers and bread (like serving a loaf of french bread with a dip). Heavier foods can help to make you feel a bit better by soaking up some of that alcohol and raising blood sugar levels.
