If you find yourself hosting a Sweet 16 for your son or daughter, then you have your work cut out for you. After selecting the Crystal Ballroom in Metro West, you need to finalize a theme, decoration and a cake. Of course, feeding a bunch of hungry teenagers is no easy task. After providing them with pizza or wings, you need to provide something sweet or for them to snack on during the evening. Here are some ideas for snacking stations throughout the evening.

Gourmet S’mores

Who says that all s’mores need to be made with a plain chocolate bar and graham crackers? Not us. Set up your gourmet s’mores bar with a variety of cookies and crackers to create a base. Next, give your teens the option of Reese’s cups, Nutella, peanut butter and other chocolate based candies.

Sundae Bar

Teenagers might play it cool but they still love ice cream, and sundaes are the best. Provide the teens with a good start and offer a few different flavors of ice cream along with a choice of hot fudge, butterscotch, caramel and strawberry sauce. Next provide a variety of toppings, including nuts, fruit, chocolate chips, sprinkles and candies.

Trail Mix

Teens love the variety of flavors and fast energy that a trail mix provides. Provide cartons for the teens to create their own mixes. You can provide a table filled with ingredients, such as popcorn, cereal, dried fruits, nuts, candies, wasabi peas and other small sweets.

At the Crystal Ballroom, we understand what it takes to feed the hungry crowds at your party so we offer an open-door vendor policy. Contact us today to learn more.
