Summer BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY

BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I wanted to make a quick and easy tiered serving tray that would look great at any outdoor summer BBQ! I made this in about five minutes using some plastic SOLO Squared plates and bowls, two shot glasses (you can use small candle stick holders instead), and some Glue Dots. I love how picnic-y and fun it turned out!

I set mine up as a chips and guacamole tray, but this would work great as a cupcake or dessert stand too.

BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY | CatchMyParty.com

  SUPPLIES:
  • 1 large (10.24 inch) SOLO Squared plastic plate
  • 1 medium (9 inch) SOLO Squared plastic plate
  • 1 SOLO Squared plastic bowl
  • 2 shot glasses
  • Glue Dots

BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY | CatchMyParty.com

DIRECTIONS:

Add four Glue Dots to the bottom of the shot glass. Affix to large plate to be your base.

Wrap 8-10 Glue Dots over the top of the shot glass and continue to stack.

And here's the finished product! It is actually quite stable, but just be careful not to add too much heavy food in the top tier.

What I love about this idea is that you can make different variations depending on what you need, then you take them apart, and make more!

Fresh Herb Party Favor DIY

Herb Garden Party Favor DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Herb Garden Party Favor DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I LOVE to garden. I love everything about it: the feel of the soil in my hands, the smells of the earth, the sweetness of the new baby plants. Gardening brings out the best in me, puts me in a good mood, and calms me like nothing else.

So, at my next party, if I can share a little bit of my good gardening karma with my guests by sending them home with fresh herb party favors, what could be better.

To make these party favors, I bought some herbs at Home Depot. Then I split up the plants (I got two favors per pot of herbs)  and repotted them in these pretty SOLO heavy duty paper cups.

Herb Garden Party Favor DIY | CatchMyParty.com

 I attached a bow made out of grosgrain ribbon to each one, and used Glue Dots to make sure the bow didn't slip down the cup. Then I wrote the name of the herb on Martha Stewart Home Office Labels and attached a label to the front of each cup. Easy!

Herb Garden Party Favor DIY | CatchMyParty.com

 Didn't they turn out so great? They're perfect for any summer party where you want to share a little bit of sweet smelling nature, and boy, do they smell sweet!
