Preston always says that what separates a nice party from a fabulous party are the details. When you use attractive pieces that also work well, guests take notice and appreciate your efforts.
No wonder he’s such a sucker for sleek party servers that are also highly functional. Like this three-compartment snack caddy, for instance. Obviously, it’s ideal for nuts, chips and candy. But Preston also likes that it has a comfortable silicone handle, making it a cinch to move around as necessary.
But what really caught his eye with this serving piece is the chance to create a theme. What does Preston mean by a theme? Well, sure, you could just open a couple of bags of nuts and pretzels and be done with it. But you could also get a little creative:
If you’re throwing a Valentine’s Day party this year, fill one bowl with white M&Ms, one with red and one with pink. Now you have a sweet as well as pretty treat for your guests!
Here’s another idea from Preston: Pour some confetti or glitter into the bowls and then set a tea light inside each bowl for an unexpected (and portable) centerpiece. After all, just because it’s called a snack caddy doesn’t mean you have to fill it with edibles.
