An engagement party is a celebration of a new era in two people’s lives and a transition for their friends and family as they move toward what will hopefully be a happy union. The food selection at one of these parties is a good way to show the happy couple how special they are and make them feel even more welcomed into both families. Here are a few food ideas for engagement parties that you may wish to consider.
As a fun dessert or a way to flavor your drinks is to create ice cubes with berries in them. To do this, you simply need to take blueberries, raspberries, or another small fruit and place them into the slots on an ice cube tray. Strawberries can also work well if you chop them up first. Add some water to fill out the ice cubes, then freeze the mixture. This provides a simple fruit snack or a great way to turn the beverage array into something extra delicious.
Sandwiches tend to feel too commonplace for a major event, but you can still get the convenience of a sandwich while still doing something original. If you spread some chicken salad on a tortilla wrap, roll it up, and then cut the wrap into portions, you create small roll-ups that serve as terrific finger food. You can add any spices or extras that you want to the wrap prior to rolling it up, allowing you to create something unique and tasty.
Home-Made Lemon Soda
You can make your own delicious soda to go with any food with some lemon juice, sugar, berries, and soda water. Mix two tablespoons of lemon juice with a tablespoon of sugar and five large strawberries (or a similar amount of berries if you prefer a different flavor). Mix until the sugar dissolves, then add ¾ cup of soda water. Add some ice or serve to your guests chilled.
An engagement party is a joyous occasion that can be enhanced with good food and drink choices. The ideas here should get you started and give you a chance to personalize your party.
