As you plan out your menu think about sweets, non sweets and also allergies which may be present in the school. Along with good eats you will need to consider drinks that will go along well with the food you plan to serve. Do not overplan and have dozens of treats, keep the selections simple and easy for the school children to recognize and eat during the Valentines Day school party. In addition to simple food ideas also make the food accessible by having it pre-sliced or cut into the proper sized protions for the school children. A little foresight will go a long way towards a successful school Valentines Day party food menu.
School Valentines Day Party Food Ideas
When planning the menu for a school Valentines Day Party think of both sweet foods and foods which are not sweet. Cookies that are common like a chocolate chip or sugar cookie (red colored in the shape of a heart) are good and easy to prepare. Cupcakes with a small layer of frosting come in single sized servings and can be made with red topping. Brownies are great and can be cut in to small bite sized bits. If you want ideas which are not sweet foods consider pretzels, nuts, chips and fruit and veggie trays. Be aware of any allergies and cut snacks into one or two bit portions.
Drink Ideas for a School Valentines Day Party
First rule is to buy the cups larger and fill them only two thirds of the way full. Fewer spills is always a blessing at a school valentines day party. Keep your drink selections simple and easy. Water should be one. The second choice should be a red punch which can be colored and flavored with a sugar based drink mix or with cranberry juice. Many kids may not like cranberry juice so a strawberry or cherry juice works well also. You can even color a clear flavored water with red food coloring. Keep the drinks simple and easy. You can pour the cups and deliver them to kids or have the school children pick up their drinks at an assigned table.
Simple Food for School Valentines Day Parties
If you are planning a school Valentines Day Party you want to have some fun for yourself as well. Put aside the urge to compete on an adult level at a school party and supply simple food with simple drinks. The school children will have a great time, you will be less stressed and the Valentines Day party will be one of the best ever.
