There are so many options for birthday party treats. If you are having a birthday theme party, it actually makes choosing party treats much easier, but you still have options and choices to make.
Birthday party treats can be as simple as a home-baked cake with ice cream and punch, but depending on the party theme, the time of day the party is held, and the guests’ ages, likes, dislikes, you should be able to come up with some really good options! Parties that are held as part of a purchased party package at a certain establishment normally come with a few choices, but in such circumstances, many of the decisions are already made for you. Parties planned and held by yourself, are much more open to the types of choices you can make about party treats.
Party treats can be ordered online, purchased at party stores, or made at home. If you are having a child’s birthday party, consider whether you wish to have it at a meal time, or at a time when snacks would be enough. If you choose not to have the party at meal time, chips or veggie and dip trays go over well, as do fruit and fruit dip trays, cupcakes, birthday cake, ice cream, and punch.
If you want to have your child’s birthday party at a meal time, peanut butter or cheese sandwiches cut into shapes with cookie cutters, chips, fruit, and juice boxes, milk in small cartons, or punch, are good choices for birthday party treats almost all children will enjoy. These birthday party treats can easily be made ahead of time, put in brown paper bags with each guest’s name on it, or cardboard containers like you see in Chinese take-out restaurants, and stored in the fridge until it is time to eat.
At most birthday parties the treats are not the most important part of the party. You do want to make sure that you include something for everyone, and provide alternate choices to be on the safe side, when planning what birthday party treats you plan to serve.
