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.

  13. Lisa Caudill :

    Where did you get the heavy duty roasting sticks?

  14. I Love this idea!! I’m having my daughter’s graduation party at the end of July.. I’m curious how you keep the chocolate from melting…. Obviously the table wont be in the sun, but its still hot in the shade most days.. Any tips would be great!!

    • Hi Lisa, Congratulations on your daughter’s graduation. I like to stick the chocolate in the fridge – the night before – and only bring it out right before serving. It definitely helps with the summer heat and gives you some play time before the chocolate become too soft to handle. – Stephanie Lynn

  15. The firepit is nice during the fall, too. I can remember attending a party a few years ago during an October Saturday night with several s’more options. Personal favorite was a Mexican twist: dark chocolate, marshmallow, toasted pumpkin seeds, and a dash of cayenne pepper, on cinnamon grahams.
