Simple Fruit Cup Lunch IdeaIn addition, the grab and go fruit and cheese cups were not only appetizing but they were also very functional. We wanted to keep the party menu simple and have a grab and go luncheon. Therefore, the goal was to creatively prepackage delicious food that could be easily eaten and quickly cleaned up. We decided to make prepackaged individual fruit cups.
“Preparing a simple individually wrapped food buffet also allows the host to relax and enjoy the celebration. Displaying appetizers and hors d’oeuvres in a creative way is a game changer for the hostess with the mostess.”
Cups and Lids for Fruit CupsThe search began for putting fruit cups together for the graduation party. Subsequently, after trying different size drink cups we determined 12oz. drink cups with lids were the perfect size. Big enough to hold ample amount of food and small enough to carry with three fingers.
Effortless DIY Fruit CupsEventually, we realized choosing this type of packaging was a success as we watched our guests grab and go with ease. In other words, we made the right decision choosing these drink cups. Everyone was able to simultaneously grab other snacks and swiftly move through the buffet line. The fruit cup party snack was a hit.

Aesthetically Appealing Fruit CupTaste is just as important as presentation. Elevate your home entertaining style and present attractive food and flavorful edibles easy for guests to eat. The combination helps set the tone for creating a memorable affair. Beautifully displayed prepackaged food can be used for an indoor affair as well as an outdoor party.
Hearty Homemade Fruit CupsWe also attached heavy weight black plastic forks that are sturdy enough to pierce grapes and cheese cubes without the utensil breaking. Have you ever experienced the uncomfortable feeling and the inconvenience of using a thin plastic fork that breaks? Well, we have and we’d like to avoid that from ever happening again.
Easy Fruit Snack DetailWhen entertaining you can never have enough napkins. So we inserted crisp white beverage napkins into the straw slots located on the top of the lids. A minor detail that helps maintain cleanliness and is visually appealing. The napkins are a perfect topping on the mini fruit cups.
