7. Or for something fresh, watermelon sticks are always a refreshing treat.


8. Use muffin tins for snacks or condiments... and to cut down on dishwashing.

Hand out a list of things for people to take pictures of (bonus for creativity), and see what people come up with! You can even create a hashtag so you can see all the photos in one spot.

10. And for a fun atmosphere? Break out a bubble machine!
