Sweet Midnight Treats

by | Bride, Catering, Reception


One of the new trends which I love is serving your guests a midnight snack to keep them refreshed and dancing (or keep them awake for the trip home!). This can be a more casual meal and should be something easy for guests to handle, but also fun!

There are endless options for your midnight snack- you could choose your favourite food or an old fashioned favourite and serve it up in a fun way, on silver platters or in bite sized portions.

This wedding had doughnuts and mini milk cartons served at midnight

    LOVE these! It’s near midnight here and I am really craving some mini cookies and milk now. How could you pass up any of these after a long night of celebration? Great ideas!

    Aw, lots of cute ideas here! We’re going to have a three course meal, which includes dessert, so we’re going to save our cake cutting for later and serve it in the evening as a snack… and perhaps to sober up some of the more tipsy people too!

    What a coincidence. I attended a wedding over the weekend that had sliders and french fries towards the end of the night. Sustenance was definitely much appreciated at that time, and no one could stop talking about what a great idea it was!

    I love that idea, because after we’re always wanting a midnight snack after a night out.

    Yeah, I’m hungry now! I shot a party that had the exact same milk and cookies and they were SO good!
