How to Host a Fabulous Party!!!

General Party Tips


·Please remember when making your own food to place in Ziti sized pans or they will not fit in the water trays


·       When appetizers or food needs to be heated please make sure temperatures and times are close to each other and that you leave enough time to heat them.  Keep in mind how many ovens you have and how long it will take to heat food


·       When bringing in home cooked food, make sure it arrives hot.  Sterno’s do not heat food it only keeps it warm.  

If you plan on heating at venue make sure you have enough ovens and that temperatures needed to cook different foods are the same


· Keep the number of entrees to four to five.  More than that is way too many choices.  People will try a little of everything,  quantity over choice is best

Here are some great things to consider at your next party or event:

Popcorn Bar

Serve flavored popcorns: butter, cheese, caramel etc. Also provide popcorn shaker flavors and white or dark chocolate drizzle. Let’s guests fill paper popcorn cups like those served at the movies

Hot Chocolate Bar

Make Hot Chocolate serve in Thermos or decanters.  Fixin bar to include marshmallows, different whips creams and various flavored syrups 


Sundae Bar

You can go from simple to elaborate serving different types of ice cream, syrups, toppings, candies, whipped cream, cherries.. however 


Baked Potato Bar:

My favorite Potato bar the hostess served the backed potatoes wrapped in tin foil that when open it it became ;like a wrapper.  You can have a few or a ton of fixing for your potato bar

Hot Dog & Fixings Station

- put hot dogs in a crock pot to stay warm throughout the party.  On the side out an assortment of condiments and sides.
