Delicious party platters need not be made of extravagant and expensive food items. When you just want to relax with your friends, simple party platters, subway sandwiches and finger foods will definitely do the trick. Get imaginative with these simple items and you are sure to enjoy throwing your simple party.
If you are new to all these, here are some party platter ideas that are simple to prepare. More importantly, these will not dent your budget too much:
1. Simple Party Platter
Crackers and some dips may be the simplest platter you can serve when you have friends come over. Create variety by putting together different types of biscuits, crackers and cookies. Also offer several types of dips and cheeses so your guests can choose whichever they want to eat.
Crackers and biscuits are very cheap and they are not too hard to obtain especially if you are assembling your platter hastily. You can even present them in such a way that shows off your creativity to your guests. For a healthier choice, you can also serve fruit party platters.
2. Party Platters Subway
Sandwiches are usually on the menu when it comes to impromptu gatherings. To make them more exciting, offer only the ingredients. Put in different kinds of breads, meats and cheeses into the plate. Also include dressings, tomatoes, onions, peppers and olives in there to give your guests a chance to be more creative in their sandwiches.
3. Finger food platter
Finger foods are very easy to cook and serve. You can go to the store and buy yourself some chicken wings, pork rolls, cheese sticks, vegetable rolls or some dim sum. You can serve them right off the frying pan while they are still piping hot.
4. Fruit Platter
If you are on the healthy side and you want your friends to join the bandwagon, then fruits are always a safe choice for you. Like any other platters discussed here, make sure you give your guests several options to choose from.
Whatever party platters, subway or finger foods you serve, the important thing is that you exert the effort in making guests feel at home and enjoy themselves.
