How to eat snacks in style

A handful of popcorn or dinner-like buffet, we all enjoy a good snack. See how to have a snack session prepared at all times – and still make a feast of it.

A smorgasbord of treats

Even before the first bite, your eyes have been served. Think of the presentation as setting the table – let it be a mouth-watering show of colours, textures and shapes.

Save a snack for later

If you frequently eat a variety of dry snacks in the same place, don’t be shy about it. With clear jars you can have them all organised, accessible and beautifully in view.

The standby serving trolley

When finger food turns into a fully fledged meal, or even dinner, be sure to have a backup plan. With a stocked-up tableware trolley waiting, you can always tailor the serving to the occasion.

Leave it like you found it

Most snacking sessions have one thing in common: they risk becoming a bit messy. Napkins can easily pile high. Just in case, keep a bin nearby for quick clean-ups. Happy snacking!
