Party Snack Cup Ideas
Looking for an inexpensive way to add pizzazz to your next party?
Try assembling individual snack cups – one for each guest.
Successful entertaining is all about the personal touches:
- Gift bags handed out at birthday parties
- Party favors given out at baby showers
- A box of chocolates or candy at the exit table.
Or think about it from a dining out perspective:
- Complimentary chips and salsa at Mexican restaurants
- A warm bread basket
- Free mints at the end of a meal
You see? The little extras are fun, whether you’re dining out or attending a party.
