Setting the Bar

Set the bar by setting the bar! I’m not talking about an open bar or cash bar. I’m talking about the delicious stuff that makes you want more. I’m talking about food bars!  Food bars are one of the fastest growing trends. Not only does it taste delicious, but it also adds a special touch to your next event that will have your guests talking about it for days. What are our favorite bars? Have a read below!  

1. Sundae Bar – Who doesn’t love ice cream? Incorporate a build-your-own sundae bar at your wedding. Perhaps during cocktail hour on a hot summer day to cool of your guests before the reception begins, or even as a late night station when your guests are sweating from strutting their moves on the dance floor! Choose three different flavored ice creams and a whole ton of toppings to choose from! Mix it up with healthy toppings such as pineapple, strawberries, toasted coconut flakes, and sweet favorites such as mini reese’s, chocolate chips, and sprinkles. Definitely a crowd pleaser for both adults and children!


2. Donut Bar – It’s Donut Time! This bar can be used as a breakfast display at the ceremony, or is the perfect addition to a bridal shower! Gather your favourite donuts and set them up in a beautifully displayed donut bar. You can stack them or place them in uniquely crafted trays. You can mix it up with timbits and regular sized donuts. Another option is to have plain donuts, with assorted glazes to drizzle on top and toppings for guests to create their own flavour of donut! Always remember to label the different flavours!

3. French Fry Bar – French fries are no longer basic! You can pick from onion rings, sweet potato fries, and regular fries. Add a selection of seasoning such as sea salt, rosemary, and garlic. We all know that we don’t just have to eat fries with ketchup anymore, so display a few different dips to choose from. If you want your guests to get really unique with customizing their fries, you can also add cheeses and toppings such as shredded chicken. The fun element of having a French Fry Bar is that you can get as creative you like with the display. Use jars, trays, different levels of platforms and cones to really give it an edgy feel!
