In the month of February, love is in the air. And what better to represent love other than some good, sweet treats? Having sweets at your event is almost essential, whether it be a sugar heaven or just a simple cake! Here we have listed some must-have sweets that we think are more common and guaranteed to be loved by your guests. Also, we have listed some more unique sweets ideas that you might want to include to make your event stand out!
Cake comes in all shapes and sizes. You can have cupcakes, cake shooters, cake pops, or an actual cake. If you’re unsure of what to have at your event, this is always a safe option!
Whether they are chocolate chip, sugar, double chocolate, M&M filled, oatmeal, peanut butter, or anything else, cookies are another option that is easy and enjoyable!
Brownies can make a nice substitute for cake if there isn’t any, but it can also be a good addition, especially if there is ice cream!
Chocolate covered goodies are delicious and fun! Oreos, strawberries, pretzels, and marshmallows are some common things that you can cover in chocolate.
Unique Sweets Ideas:
Everyone loves ice cream; have an ice cream cart/truck or a station at your event where guests can customize their sundaes!
Incorporate fruits into your event for the healthy lovers. You can offer a variety of candy apples and fruit kabobs.
There are many things you can have at your event that is better in mini form. Not only are they cuter, but having these mini cheesecakes, fruit tarts, and pies will also make it easier for guests to enjoy!
Please your chocolate lover guests by having a chocolate bar at your event. Don’t forget the truffles!
Popcorn isn’t only for the movies. Have a caramel popcorn station to sweeten things up!
While cake can be placed in “shooter” form, so can other desserts. Your cheesecakes, pies, and mousses can be shooters too if you prefer this to the mini style. You can also have parfait and pudding shooters for brunch events!
Have some pre-made or DIY s’mores for your guests to enjoy!
There are many types of pastries in this world. Have just a few at your event! Some examples are strudels, scones, cinnamon rolls, and bear claws.
If you love banana bread, or any other types of bread, share it with your guests! You can even put them in small mason jars so they are cute and easy to grab.
Bring a little culture to your party! Whether you are from that place or not, having foods from other countries will spice things up. European flavors include macaroons and éclairs; Spanish flavors can be pastelitos and merenguitos, and Asian snacks can be moon cakes or mochi ice cream.
Regardless of what you have at your event, having it homemade is always appreciated. Use that family recipe that everyone loves and some of your guests might even recognize it!
Whatever you decide to have at your event, make sure it is something you will enjoy yourself. Don’t worry your guests will love it too! Who doesn’t love sweets?!
