If you’re preparing for a bat or bar mitzvah or a Sweet 16, tasty and convenient food can make or break your party. For an audience of teens, a good event planner usually recommends classic favorite foods, and it’s easy to dress some of these up depending on the atmosphere of the party. Here are a few ideas your teen or tween will love.
Foods to Serve at a Party for Teens
There’s a reason pizza is common party food. It’s familiar, delicious, customizable, and convenient finger food. If you don’t want pizza to be the only main dish, set up a pizza bar where guests can choose their favorite toppings and enjoy smaller slices.
2. Ice Cream
Another favorite, ice cream is most fun when served with a number of sauces and toppings. Choose one or two ice cream flavors, then let your guests go wild adding candy, fruit, flavored syrup, cookies, whipped cream and more.
A delicious dip served with chips or veggies packs a ton of flavor into every bite. Try a seven-layer bean dip with tortilla chips or a creamy ranch dip to encourage partygoers to snack on some vegetables.
4. Mini Foods
Any food your teen or tween likes can be made in miniature for a party, including sliders, meatballs, pastries, loaded potatoes, and chicken wings. Miniaturizing these foods makes them easier to eat in a bite or two, and allows you to serve a wider variety of dishes.
5. Carnival Treats
Carnival food can add novelty to your teen’s party and will offer partygoers some tasty treats after the main course. Include a cotton candy machine, funnel cake, and cinnamon sticks for a sweet end to the party.
