Party food ideas for holiday party nibbles. Sharing a few easy appetizers and Christmas party food ideas. I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rubbermaid. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
The holiday season is in full gear from Thanksgiving to the New Year and my calendar is packed with parties! I love styling parties, coming up with creative displays and ideas for entertaining. I especially love being invited to parties by friends and I like to bring something special I know everyone will enjoy. My go-to party foods are something to nibble on, cheese and crackers or a yummy dip, and something sweet. No one ever turns down cupcakes, they are pretty much universally loved and guaranteed to please.
Traveling with mini bites is more challenging than simply bringing a covered dish. I need something with separate spaces for appetizers and a sturdy, crush proof cupcake carrier. I love the Rubbermaid® food storage containers. They make it so much easier to pack up party food and keep it fresh.
The Rubbermaid® Party Platter is a lightweight all-in-one container that can be used in so many different ways. I love that it has two inserts and one base so I can change it up for whatever I'm making to take. I can pack up a dozen cupcakes, or use the mini server to carry smaller stuff like my mini dessert cups or even deviled eggs. The flat base is perfect for cakes and pies and even has a raised lip to contain small stuff. It's easy to clean, dishwasher safe and BPA free.

I made these cupcakes and an appetizer platter to bring to a Friendsgiving party my gang throws ever year after Thanksgiving. Walking into a party with these easy to carry trays, your goodies all neatly secured is stress-free and far better than wondering what it's gonna look like when you peel back aluminum wrap or some other poorly packed platter.
