Serve it Up! Sandwiches with Style | Family Economics

By Tori Tait


Serving sandwiches is a great way to take the stress out of entertaining. Whether you’re hosting a play date or a luncheon, consider making a plate of sandwiches for your guests. You’ll want to create a variety (three types of sandwiches is always a good rule of thumb) and you’ll want to add a little extra touch in the way you choose to display them. One simple way to dress up your sandwich platter is to wrap them individually. Not only will they look more thoughtful, it will be easier for guests to grab as they mingle.

Washi tape (found at most craft stores), or baker’s twine


1.    Make a platter of your favorite sandwiches.

2.    Next, cut strips of parchment paper, about 3-inches wide, and wrap around each sandwich. Secure the parchment paper around the sandwich by wrapping a piece of washi tape around (you can also use baker’s twine).

3.    Set out on a platter for guests to enjoy.

You can make the sandwiches up to a day in advance; just remember to store the platter of sandwiches in the fridge so they stay fresh.

How do you dress up your party platters? I’d love to hear about your creations in the comment section below!
