Restaurantware {a proud member of my wedding vendor guide} sponsored this post and provided their products for use. All ideas, opinions and photos are 100% my own.
Whether you are planning an engagement party, a bridal shower, a bachelorette party, a wedding, or a party for any celebration - serving food in stylish and unexpected ways is a great way to surprise your guests. It's also a fun way for conversations to get started. I love thinking outside the box when it comes to parties and food. Today, I am sharing with you some stylish food presentation ideas for your next party that I've come up with thanks to the amazing items that are available from Restaurantware {your source for eco-friendly tableware}. I want to know what your favorite food presentation idea is - please share in the comments and let me know what party you have in the works.

Serve your Snacks in Style with Bamboo Cones

Let your guests grab a bamboo cone and snack away - perfect for cocktail parties. Fill them with whatever you choose {here I used blueberries, pretzels and potato chips} and you can either place them in a cone holder or a cute little pail like this one works perfectly too.

Citrus Place Cards with Paper Straws

Place cards are always best when they serve a purpose. This is a fun way for each guest to add a slice of lime or lemon to their drinks. Simply attach a clip art image of a lemon or lime slice with the guests name attached to a paper straw that is inserted into a fresh lemon or lime. The guest can then slice their very own lime or lemon for their drink{s}.

Watermelon with Pearl Topped Toothpicks

Surprise your guests with a super fancy fruit treat held together with pearl topped toothpicks. Makes a super elegant display {my daughter said it looked like the watermelon was ready for a fancy tea party}.

Sweet Treats For Party Guests in Paper Goodie Bags

Surprise your guests with a sweet treat goodie bag to go home with. A cute little way to close the bag is with a folded paper doily, a little fruit clip art image on paper with a clothespin holding it all together.

Yogurt Smoothies are Fun in Mason Jars with Paper Straws

I love how you can get paper straws to match any color palette and there's so many patterns to choose from too - stripes, zig zags, spirals and polka dots. Simply make some yougurt smoothies {or buy them pre-made} and layer them into mini mason jars - top with a fancy lid and add a paper straw. It's the fancy way to enjoy your smoothie :)

Pearl Topped Fruit Skewers

A super pretty way to serve fruit at any party - simply add the fruit of your choice {in any pattern} onto the pearl topped toothpicks and wow your guests.

Candy Favors in Mini Mason Jars

Anything can be placed in these adorable mini mason jars - but I always think candy in the party colors is a great way to greet your guest at their place setting. A fun way to finish off the candy favor is with some twine and a hand-stamped thank you tag with some sequins glued on. I also painted an ombré watercolor background on the tag.
