Today we’re talking food! Children’s party food is traditionally a bit, dare we say it, dull. Sandwiches, a few crisps, a cocktail sausage if you’re lucky and finished off with jelly and ice cream. Fills a wee hungry tummy but doesn’t complement the party or spark little imaginations in any way. At our Sparkle Stars parties, we’ve seen all sorts of food being served up and even been lucky enough to sample some of it – so have a good idea of what gets little ones enthused at food table! If you’ve got a celebration coming up, check out the ideas below for some simple but super effective party food suggestions.
Spicing up Sandwiches
No need to skip the sandwiches completely for a kid’s party, just give them a little more pizzaz! For very young guests, we love these teddy bear sandwiches. All you would need to create them is:
- White and brown bread
- A teddy shaped cutter
- Melted chocolate to drizzle on for the eyes and mouth
- Mini marshmallows and fudge to create the ears
- Any fillings of your choice.
Super Savouries and Healthy Hints
Let’s face it, as much as little people enjoy the sugary treats at parties best, you want to encourage them to have something healthy as well – so you’re not scraping them off the ceiling come home time! Try tempting them with these rainbow pizzas, ladybird bruschetta (tried and tested by us!) and fruity magic wands.
Every party needs a treat or two, here’s our favourite ideas for making those sweet things even sweeter.
Chocolate and Sprinkle Dipped Strawberries – So very simple but look and taste amazing! Just put melted chocolate in one bowl, sprinkles in another and get dipping! Leave in the fridge for half an hour to harden the chocolate before serving.
Hopefully we’ve given you some party food inspiration to turn your table into something magical! If you have any of your own ideas please share them with us!
