This is an absolutely ingenious beach wedding reception idea. Your guests can visit a table and create their own smores right there at your reception! It’s a clever idea that will really impress your guests, and will produce some delicious treats.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Long flower boxes (1 for each table, depending upon how many guests you will have)
Small pebbles to fill boxes
Cans of Sterno (about 5 or 6 for each flower box)
Here’s how you create it. Fill the flower boxes up with the pebbles, and place cans of Sterno down in the pebbles. You should space the cans about 6 to 12 inches apart. This will sit on your tabletop and when you’re ready, you can light the cans of Sterno and you have an instant Smores cooking station.
At the end of the table, place platters with the marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate as well as plates and napkins so guests can help themselves to the ingredients. You can also use a jar or another decorative container to hold the barbecue skewers, which is what guests will use to hold the marshmallows for roasting.
Make sure guests know that if there are children present, they will need to accompany their child to the Smores bar (you can place cute little signs like at a buffet). And that’s it – you’ve created a genius Smores bar that your guests will absolutely love!
