Go Grazy on Game Day: Grazing Tables

Grazing tables make for a fun way for people to gather 'round, chat and enjoy each other's company. The best part about them is there's little to no clean up! Keep reading for some tips and tricks to creating a fun grazing table!

Y’all do you ever get so psyched to host a watch party but you always dread the clean up? Let me tell you, a grazing table makes clean up a breeze…that’s cause there is no clean up. Let your guests eat, drink and be merry and don’t worry one bit about the mess. 

Last weekend I share on my Instagram stories that I was trying my hand at a grazing table for college football’s championship weekend. I’m pretty sure I talked it up quite a bit and not gonna lie, I did a decent job for my first go at it. Of course I’m here to share with you some tips and tricks so you can create your own grazing table for the next party you host. 

First, let me be clear. In no way was any of my product sponsored. I shop at Kroger because it is literally right outside my neighborhood so that is where all of my food came from and I purchased many items from Kroger’s Private Selection label. I spend a total of $120 dollars and I would say that my table could feed up to 8 hungry guests. Here is my shopping list: 

Cold Stuff

Cheeses and Nuts

Sweet Stuff

Crackers and Extras

  • Sliced Pepperoni
  • Spiral Sandwiches
  • Mini Bell Peppers
  • Dill Dip
  • Potato Salad
  • Macaroni Salad
  • Horseradish Cheddar
  • Gouda
  • Dill Swiss
  • Cranberry Wensleydale
  • Brie
  • Pistachios
  • Cashews
  • Mini Cinnamon Rolls
  • Orange Cranberry Muffin Tops
  • Cherry Bites
  • Apple Struddle Bites
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Private Selection Dill Crackers
  • Private Selection Rosemary Crackers
  • Private Selection Wheat Crackers
  • Private Selection Parmesan Oyster Crackers
  • Carrs Water Crackers
  • Boozy Cran Cherry Chutney
  • Boozy Cherries

This is the easiest thing to assemble. How you do it is totally up to you! First and foremost you need a piece of butcher paper to lay out on your table, this will serve as the platter. Organize your snacks how you want. I set mine up in categories, sweets and cheeses, to veggies and cheeses with my main course (spiral sandies) in the middle. To fill in the gaps I added in some berries, the nuts and crackers. Now, to add some dimension, I used a few bowls for the berries, and the potato and macaroni salad. The dill dip also had it’s own bowl as well. Add in some serving spoons and, voila! How you arrange your table and the foods you provide is totally up to you! Here’s an extra tip: If you have extra dead space, place some drinks out there or some greenery.

When the party is over, clear the few bowls you used and trash the rest. It’s that easy! Tell me, are you going to try a grazing table at your next event?
