Easy Party Food Recipes and Tips
A Glass With Class
It’s a shame to pour a pretty, grown-up cocktail into a plastic cup that says “keg party.” For a more sophisticated option, try a translucent (or frosted) shatterproof tumbler, says Calder Clark, an event designer in Charleston, South Carolina. “They’re sturdy, great-looking, and inexpensive if you buy them in bulk.” They’re also dishwasher-safe, and if you’re feeling fancy, you can have them personalized with your name or—wait for it—monogram. For lemonade and mixed drinks, a 12-ounce cup works. (Find them at paperhouseonline.com. Plain 12-ounce cups start at $57.50 for 50.)
When it comes to the do’s and don’ts, you’ve got lots of questions. Here, solutions for making the season merry and bright.
