The main reasons why mini foods are a hit at weddings and events is due to presentation. Serving mini fries in mini fry cartons just shows how much you are paying attention to details. If they were served in a regular plate they would not be as much of a hit. I am totally in love at how the mac and cheese is displayed in the picture below. IT reminds me of the little soufflé bowls that they are actually made in.
ellyB TIP: Please note that if your mini foods are being passed during cocktail hour and contain items that cannot be disposed such as forks, spoons or mini-bowls, make sure there are many trays for your guests to use at their disposal so they are not holding these items in their hands for an entire hour.
