As I’m sure you’ve already guessed, I love cake and I eat buttercream frosting with a spoon. With all the dessert recipes I share here on Moms & Munchkins, there is a lot of taste testing that goes on at home. I try to balance that out with some healthy fruits and vegetables (some days are easier than others – ha!). If you’re looking for a healthy buffet idea for your next party, check out my Ultimate Salad Bar article in Pink Magazine. You’ll find full details there on foods to serve, toppings, ways to serve it while keeping the foods fresh, and more. As an added bonus, I’m sure you’ll earn yourself TWO pieces of cake after washing and cutting up all these fresh fruits and vegetables!
Ultimate Salad Bar:
You can view my full written article in Pink Magazine but I’ll share all the party photos with you here to help you brainstorm ideas for your own Ultimate Salad Bar.
There are plenty of options here to satisfy all guests. You could even include a few recipe suggestions with silly names to match your party theme. Like for a baby shower, you could have a recipe suggestion for “Baby Corn & Sweet Pea Salad” with items like baby corns, peas, Babybel cheese, a sour cream dressing and other vegetable mix-ins.
Love the idea of a party buffet? Buffets are a great way to serve food at a party because guests can pick whatever they want to eat. I find you have less food waste this way as guests just take what they like and leave the rest for you to wrap as leftovers. Check out a few of our other party buffet favorites…
Hot Dog Bar – great for a summer BBQ party!
Ice Cream Buffet – who wouldn’t want ice cream, right?!
Donut Buffet – great for a dessert bar or a special slumber party breakfast!

How do you figure out how much of each topping to buy?? We are doing this for teachers (130 people), but nervous about having right amount of each thing. Any pointers?
