Where Can I Get Some Easy Party Food Ideas?

Party Food Ideas

Party food ideas can be the main cause of stress when you're planning a party.

What kind of party food should I serve?

You want to have items that everyone likes, and the right amount. If you are looking for some menu ideas for your next event, this article will ignite your imagination and help jumpstart your carte du jour. The most important thing about party food is that there are food choices for everyone. Watch out for peanut, seafood, or wheat allergies; diabetic guests should have some choices, as well as vegetarians or others with dietary restrictions.

The best kind of party food ideas are EASY and I think appetizers are the easiest! You can find some easy appetizer recipes for your party.

Kids Party Food Ideas

The age of the kids at a child’s party will help you decide what food to serve. Younger children should not have very small items, so stay away from nuts and small candy. Cupcakes and cookies are great, as are individual sized muffins or doughnut holes. Chicken nuggets are always a popular food idea for kids!

For older children to teenagers, a pizza party is always a favorite. You can offer a variety of toppings on the pizzas, and offer side dishes such as salad and breadsticks. Ice cream is great for any age group. If in doubt, ask your guests what they would like to see on the menu. Whatever you choose, make sure you have enough, because many times guests bring other guests, or neighborhood kids stop by and you want to make sure you've got enough for all.

Graduation Party Food Ideas

Many graduations take place in the summer, so an outdoor BBQ is ideal and it also gives you lots of party food ideas. You can include burgers, dogs, chicken, or sausages on the menu. Side dishes can be easily made at home or bought from the deli, and can include potato or macaroni salads, cold bean salads, fruit salads, and normal mixed greens salads. Decoratively sliced melons are a refreshing alternative to cake, as are fruit and cream combination desserts.

If your guest of honor is a high school grad, a home cooked potluck can give them a wonderful send-off as they go onto college, where a home cooked meal will become a treat. Having everyone bring a dish offers many choices for guests as well as the opportunity to sample many different recipes. You can give your potluck dinner a theme; for instance, a dessert buffet. Each guest can bring a dessert. Or a Hawaiian/Luau theme; grilled tropical fruit and fish can be served, as well as colorful drinks.

Brunch Food Ideas

Party food ideas are easy when it comes to having a brunch. Having your party late morning/early afternoon leaves the doors open to have both breakfast and lunch foods. It's simple to have a little of each meal, breakfast and lunch. Having a brunch will allow you to mix both the best of breakfast and lunch.

Cold or warm quiches can be served, as well as a variety of baked goods. Fresh fruit and warm or cold pancakes, crepes, or blintzes can be served with whip cream. Finger sandwiches and salad make a nice light fare for a brunch. Gourmet or flavored coffees, teas, and juices make wonderful brunch party beverages.

No matter what the reason for the gathering, the food is one item that is looked forward to and remembered. As long as your food ideas include the needs of your guests and the palette of your guest of honor in mind, you will do a great job. Have fun with the food and make sure to enjoy some of it with your guests.
