Food & Drink Station Ideas for Reception



The other week I posted a photo to our Instagram of a recent wedding that had something unique for their guests to enjoy... a popcorn bar!

Their popcorn bar had 4 types of popcorn to choose from with various flavors to sprinkle on top. To top it off, the popcorn was from a local popcornery (not sure if that is correct, but it works for me!) Mountaineer Popcorn in Shepherdstown, WV.

That was the first time I had seen a popcorn bar for guests. I have been to weddings with donuts, candy display, and end-of-the-night cookies; so I started wondering about all of the other unique stations for guests...

Well there are a lot! Below I will show a few ideas I gathered together, but if you want the full experience... head over to our Pinterest Page!

First up... PRETZELS! I love nothing more, than a hot, fresh soft pretzel dripping with butter and large salt crystals! So here is a whole table devoted to such loveliness and it offers guests accompanying dipping sauces!


Next... Ice Cream Sundaes... Offer a create-your-own station or have an eclectic ice cream truck serve your guests!


For the Fall-Lovers... Apple Cider Bar with assorted mix-ins! Don't mind if I do!


For the Bride & Groom with a sweet tooth... Cotton Candy, Waffles, or Pies!
