As the host of a party, we deserve to have a good time too! But as someone commented on my recent post regarding hiring a bartender, sometimes our enjoyment is boggled down with serving our guests and answering a slew of questions, including, ” what is this? ” and ” what does this have in it?”.
When hosting an event in your home, usually you are familiar with the likes, dislikes and allergies of your guest list. If I have a guest who is allergic to a particular food item, when greeting them I tell them what on the menu was created with them in mind, and what items they should stay away from. There are usually only one or two guests with severe allergies, so it isn’t a major inconvenience on your part.
On the other hand, ” what is this?” will be asked by everyone. Here are a few creative (and fun) ways to label food for your guests.
This idea is perfect for a Game Night!
An alternative to craft paper. Use black wrapping paper to lay out the pieces to your food station.
Or…go with the original: Craft Paper
For those of you who love a good printable. Use clothespins to attach the labeling to the food items.
Use dry erase markers on corner ceramic tiles for creative labeling.
You can add any design to fit the theme and reuse them as much as you need to!
