Party planner: Small bites of food can be party hit
April 22, 2009
For people who want to be on the cutting-edge of party planning, one professional is suggesting to think small, particularly with the food.
By opting to serve smaller bites of food, your party guests may be inspired to mingle more, as opposed to being strapped down to a seat at a dinner table.
This also affords you the opportunity to show off more of your cooking skills and offer your guests more variety in food choices. This may be especially helpful for people with friends who adhere to certain diets.
But there's also a science to this, according to Jason Apfelbaum, president of Chef & Company. People will stay longer if there's more to eat.
"At dinner parties they often dont eat desserts," Apfelbaum told Delish.com. "When it's bite-size, they stay and eat them."
By incorporating more stylish elements to your party, you may impress your friends and inspire them to follow in suit, making you a successful trend setter and party planner in one single swoop. Just make sure you keep the recipes for the popular dishes to yourself.
