Before you buy soggy, flavorless wraps in bulk, consider presenting a sandwich bar! Simply divide out your sandwich meats, fruits, veggies, a variety of spreads, breads, crackers, or lettuce leaves (to use as wraps), and let your guests be creative.

When it comes to choosing your ingredients, be daring! Sure, there's your basic PB&J or ham and Swiss on rye. But with a little imagination, the ingredients you serve can make for inventive and elegant combinations.

Granny apple slices, for example, can be eaten on whole wheat with peanut butter, or they can be slid between slices of cheddar and turkey. And, of course, there’s always this sweet combo of granola, chocolate chips, and peanut butter, which make an appearance between two slices of apple. Now that’s food for thought
