Great Snack Ideas for Your Next Quilt, Scrapbook, or Craft Retreat Weekend Getaway
Here at Osage Hills Retreat, we love our quilters, scrapbookers, card makers, crocheters, knitters, writers, diamond artists, and professional nappers … in the interest of not showing favoritism, we are referring to everyone as Crafters!
Craft Retreats are the perfect opportunity to indulge in uninterrupted craft time, catch up with friends, and learn new skills. But let's face it, all that creativity can be tiring! To keep your energy levels up and your mind focused on your projects, it's important to have some snacky snacks on hand. Here are some good snacky snack ideas for your next craft retreat weekend.
Meat and Cheese Tray: Meat and Cheese trays are a classic, filling snack. Choose a variety of meats and cheeses, and pair them with some whole-grain crackers. Add some grapes or sliced apples for a little extra sweetness.
Fruit and Veggie Platters: Seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables such as sliced carrots, celery, cucumbers, and bell peppers pair well with hummus or dip. Include some grapes, berries, or melon for a sweet treat.
Trail Mix: Trail mix is the perfect snack for a craft retreat. It's easy to pack and can be customized to your preference. Combine nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and even some chocolate chips for a sweet, salty snack that you will want to snack on all day.
Energy Bars: Energy bars are a great option for a quick energy boost. Some good options include Kind Bars, Larabars, and RX Bars.
Popcorn: Popcorn is perfect for munching on while you craft. Air-popped popcorn can be made in a brown paper bag in a microwave, or packaged microwave bags are an easy go-to.
Muffins: You can make these ahead of time and bring them with you to the retreat. Muffins can also double as a breakfast item!
Tea and Coffee: No craft retreat would be complete without hot beverages. Bring along a selection of teas and coffees and some cream and sweeteners. A warm drink to sip on while you craft will keep you cozy and energized. Bring a selection of sodas and other beverages for your non-coffee drinkers, and drink plenty of water – stay hydrated!
Packing the right snacky snacks for your craft retreat is important to keep you fueled and focused. Organize with your group to have an assortment of snacks from healthy to indulgent, sweet to savory, and your group will have everything you need to power through your projects. Happy snacking!
