Garden party ideas for dips and nibbles

Stylish serving tray thanks to decorative labelling that can be wiped off and reapplied

Thinking of holding a barbecue or garden party? To make it a real success, it’s good to offer a selection of classic and fancy side dishes, such as freshly-baked bread and homemade dips – not to mention spicy sauces, an essential part of any party buffet. To avoid any mix-ups, we recommend you label the dips clearly. Our idea also doubles as a table decoration for your party! edding chalk markers are perfect for this and add a distinctive touch: try using small bowls in light colours set against a black slate board and use a white chalk marker for the labelling. Simply write on the board whatever it is you’re serving – “olives”, “salsa” or “curry” are just a few examples. The neat thing about the chalk markers is that they’re wipeable, so if a dish is empty and you want to swap it over for something else, simply wipe off the old label with a damp cloth and relabel! The chalk markers are filled with liquid chalk specially designed for writing and drawing on non-porous surfaces such as film, glass or smooth boards. What’s more, there are nine vibrant, opaque colours to choose from.
