Easy Grab and Go Food

Setting up an easy grab and go food buffet for your next home entertaining affair is highly recommended. Why? Because it makes entertaining a lot easier for the following three reasons.

1. Easy Grab and Go Food is Self Serve

1 The food is self serve. Guest can help themselves and make their own food choices. No additional help is needed to serve guests and not having to hire food servers saves money. Check out these easy pepperoni sandwiches we served at our daughters graduation party. We wrapped them in clear cellophane bags to maintain freshness.

2. The Food is Protected

2 The food is protected with packaging. Not only does the packaging protect the food from environmental elements but it also keeps the food fresh. The added convenience of prepackaging the food allows the option for guests to take their food and eat at a later time.

Elevate Your Home Entertaining Style

When setting up a grab and go food buffet choose simple packaging that enhances the foods visual appearance. Using clear cellophane bags help guests quickly identify food choices and blend well with dΓ©cor. Here we purchased Tostitos Bite Size Chips and used an American International Heat Sealer to seal the bags to ensure freshness. If the added expense of a heat sealer is not in the budget use twist ties to seal the bags. Decorative twist ties are included in the purchase of the clear cellophane bags.

Create Memorable Celebrations

We incorporated cookies from our local bakery. Individually wrapped some in clear cellophane bags and some in black stripe bags. Mixing in the black stripe bags helped to quickly identify the cookies with nuts and added a little more visual texture to the food buffet.

3. Easy Clean Up

3 My favorite reason… Easy Clean Up! There is less clean up involved for the host. Guest help with clean up by simply throwing away their trash in a designated container. Enables the host to spend more quality time with guests and enjoy the special occasion.

Cupcakes are another great option for a grab and go food buffet. We used clear plastic cups with lids to package these cupcakes. Adding a little color coordinated tinsel on top made them look more festive.

Easy Grab and Go Buffets allow everyone to relax and Enjoy The Celebration

Tips:

To get the most out of your entertaining budget

  1. Purchase an American International Heat Sealer – enables you to buy one size cellophane bag and customize to fit your exact need. Saves the added expense of guessing what size bag is needed for each food item.

2. The clear cellophane bags are sold in quantities of 300. We cut the bags in half and used the heat sealer to close each bag. Doing so enabled us to obtain 600 bags for the cost of 300 bags.

3. If your budget doesn’t support the purchase of an American International Heat Sealer… No problem. The clear cellophane bags come with decorative twist ties that can be used to seal the bags.
