Planning your party menu is only half the fun -- we like everything we serve to look pretty, too! With our creative serving ideas for fall party food, your buffet table will stop guests in their tracks.
When it comes to party planning, easier is better. That's why we love these decked-out toothpicks -- so cute, yet so darn easy. Buy them or make them with crisscrossing washi tape to match your party's theme.
Even saucy sandwiches can get dressed up for your next tailgate. Pack them in simple aluminum pans for unfussy appeal. Wax-paper wraps for each burger look cool and minimize mess.
Melted ice cream dripping down your arm can put a damper on your party spirit. Cheer up! A simple wax- or parchment-paper wrap looks adorable and saves you and your party guests from sticky hands.
Chicken pot pie is a staple on our fall menu, and it's easy to make the classic comfort food look party-worthy. Instead of traditional vents in the top of the pie, use a cookie cutter to carve a sweet shape.
If pumpkin pie stars at your fall gatherings, make it even more special with an easy but gorgeous garnish. Place a leaf-shape cookie cutter gently on the pie, and fill the inside of the cutter with cinnamon. Pull a butter knife or chopstick through the crumbs to make veins.
Slicing apples crosswise reveals a festive star shape that looks and tastes gorgeous atop autumnal spiced cider. Strands of orange peel are another pretty touch that adds a hint of citrus zing.
Great for Halloween, our raven stencil lets you leave a ghostly trace on dessert plates. Cut out the stencil and dust over it with cocoa powder. Creating the design on white plates offers the most dramatic look.
Instead of skewering appetizers with toothpicks, pump up the cute factor (and the flavor) with pretzel sticks. It’s easy, adorable, and delicious -- why didn’t we think of this sooner?
Give a standard cupcake a party-ready makeover in three steps. First choose cupcake liners that match your party's theme (bonus if they coordinate with the frosting). Then tie each cupcake with a ribbon, and finally top off the frosting with a cute candy.
