S’mores Bar Party – build-your-own s’mores party table set up #LetsMakeSmores | This shop is #sponsored by #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. The story and opinions read here are entirely my own ~ Let’s Make S’mores Tonight!
The perfect ending to any event we host here at the house usually involves a gathering around the fire pit. It’s an entertaining tradition that never gets old, especially during the summer months. Once the fire gets going there is no denying the ultimate companion to the crackling flames and moonlit skies is a good old fashioned s’mores.
No matter what the occasion or party menu may be, there always seems to be room for S’mores at the end of the night.
I’m a big fan of self serve party tables and when it comes to s’mores it’s no different. Offering an array of different toppings gives guests a chance to get creative and build their own custom concoctions. There is no wrong way to make a s’mores!
Setting up a S’mores Bar Party Table is simple and a quick solution for any summertime get-together. Below are some easy display ideas for care-free entertaining and printables showcasing some of our favorite s’mores combinations.
The only prep really involved in setting up a s’more bar party table is coming up with a fun display.
A majority of the basic ingredients can simply be left in their original packaging – which means all of the prep work can be completed in advance and ready to go when the fire begins.
All of the toppings for our s’mores bar were found in one quick trip to our local Walmart.
The toppings can be displayed in something as simple as plain white bowls, as shown above, lined up for easy access.
Note: Be sure to have a receptacle close by for guests to dispose of the wrappers.
Canisters with lids are perfect for holding and displaying the marshmallows and graham crackers. Although the lids are removed once the party begins – they help keep outdoor pests at bay while on display.
Note: for younger guests plastic containers or bins may be more suitable for safe self access.
TIP: To keep the marshmallows from getting sticky I always like to toss them in a bowl with some powdered sugar – making sure each marshmallow is completely coated before placing them in a container.
Along with the basics – Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bars, Honey Maid Graham Cracker Squares, and Kraft’s Jet Puffed Marshmallows – our S’mores Bar Party Table also included:
Ritz Crackers, Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème Candy Bars, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Fresh Sliced Strawberries, and Kraft Caramels
The beauty of a S’mores Bar Party is watching guests build their own unique flavor combinations. We love seeing – and tasting – what everyone is creating!
