Good Things Come in Small Packages

Now that events are back, guests have had enough of staff-attended buffets and plated meals. They are ready to mix up the events game by embracing the fun, the unique, and dare we say, the small? That’s right! Small bites and sips are finding their way into events of all kinds–big or small, formal or informal–because not only do they offer a lot of ease when serving, but they also provide the chance for guests to try an assortment, without filling up in the process. Here are a few tiny additions you can incorporate into your next event!
