Type Of Food To Serve At Parties

The best way to narrow down what to serve at a party is to decide the theme and location. Will this be a sit-down dinner? Will it be a casual open house? Or will it be an outdoor picnic/BBQ?

The easiest choice will be to serve finger foods. That way, guests can serve themselves. It’s less work for you and saves on dishes, too!

Charcuterie boards are a really impressive and fun way to display finger food.

Finger food with dips is another one of the best graduation party menu ideas. Everyone loves dips!

Food on a stick – whether that’s skewers or toothpicks – let your guests help themselves.

And don’t forget about the desserts. Every party needs the sweet treats, too.

Party Food Supplies

The supplies you need will depend on the food that you choose to make.

That’s why I suggest clicking through to each recipe or idea. The individual recipes will have a list of tools and supplies that you need.

Generally, there are some party food supplies that you’ll need, no matter what you make.

First, you need a huge cutting board, a food serving tray, or a tiered tray. Basically, you need things to set the food on.
