Unique Box Lunch that Makes Your Guests WOW

When you say “Box Lunch” I immediately think about the lunches that I took to school as a kid either in a brown paper bag or if you were lucky a metal lunch box. Gone are the days of leftover dinner, pizza or anything else your parents could think of to throw in that box lunch. Today’s “Box Lunch” will definitely surprise you.

With any type of party you host, watch your food choices should there be any food allergies. Whatever you choose for your box lunch, whether you fix it or yourself or avoid the hassle and have someone caterer it for you, remember the presentation! Use some paper wrap, ribbons, sticker labels to add some personal touch to show how much fun you are having hosting this party and to get your guests to say WOW! Think outside the box of normal plastic packaging or brown paper bags and think about using shoe boxes, cigar boxes, drink carriers or even small wicker baskets (you could include any cutlery you need by attaching on top or to the handles.)

Utilize a display that is both practical and functional. You could place everything at the table setting or set it up so that your guests are able to grab their box when they are arriving for the event, just remember to label the boxes with the items inside so there’s no guessing or swapping when they sit down. Again, the possibilities of what you have as a Main Course and Sides are utterly limitless. Hopefully these options listed will help you create a Unique Box Lunch that Makes Your Guests WOW
