How to personalize your wedding or event Part 2

December 9, 2008

One of my favorite parts to any wedding is the food (so you may be reading about many resourceful ideas about food). With that being said, why not personalize your wedding or event with Interactive Food Stations.  Interactive Food Stations can be presented in several ways: Kept open for the duration of the event;  planned as a late night snack – a nice surprise for guests who are beginning to experience hunger pains after dancing the night away,  or as a treat for the long road home. In any event, it’s your special day so personalize it by being creative! 🙂

Here are some suggestions:

A Candy Bar

A Sweets Table

Then purchase containers and cake stands of varying heights in your theme or colors. Adorn with a beautful centerpiece. Lastly, make sure to make labels so your guests know what delights they are about to enjoy!

Ice Cream Sundae & Floats Bar

Chocolate Fountain

Smores Station

Donut Station

They can be dipped in lots of different flavors, but my favorite is powdered sugar.  I heard a rumor that you can have candy bars fried too! Yum! Yum!
In and Out Truck
