Dinner parties are so much fun to throw with friends and family. You sit down at a lovely table and enjoy good quality food over wine and great conversation. When the main course takes forever to cook though, people can get a little antsy. You start hearing bellies rumbling with hunger and start to panic about the waiting time. To prevent this scenario, creating some sort of snack board is the best way to help guests even forget they are waiting for supper. With a variety of sweet and savoury flavors, you can set out a few of these snack boards to keep friends entertained for at least an hour before supper. Just enough time to set the table, light the candles and slice the roast beef!
