What better way to spend a weekend outdoors than throwing a s’mores party? Because a weekend filled with such ooey-gooey deliciousness is a super sweet treat! Here’s what you need to host a sweet s’mores party.
Of course, chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers are a must have. Start with the basics and experiment with different flavors: try strawberry marshmallows instead of plain; fudge striped cookies or shortbread instead of graham crackers; or salted caramel chocolate or peanut butter and chocolate in place of regular milk chocolate. The possibilities are endless!
For an outdoor heat source, use a fire pit or a campfire to roast your marshmallows.
Plus, you’ll need some extra items to make sure your s’mores party runs smoothly:
- Skewers – You definitely need these to roast marshmallows! Try to have at least one skewer per guest.
- Plates – This makes it easier for guests to remove cooked s’mores from the skewers and to create multiple s’mores at once
- Napkins – Spoiler alert: s’mores are very gooey!
- Serving Trays – Use trays to separate the ingredients, making it easier for guests to build their s’mores.
Next, lay out all the ingredients at the s’mores station. We set up this bench-style station with a burlap runner and glass jars for a rustic look, and added fresh flowers for a pop of color. Adapt the decor to suit your theme or occasion.
S’mores is all about having fun and enjoying a tasty treat! There are hundreds of different combinations to experiment with. Enjoy your weekend and follow us on Instagram for more s’mores inspiration.
