Deluxe grilled cheese bar

**Printables now available in the shop**

Seeing lots of friends but avoiding lots of cooking? Not the easiest combo, unless you make your guests make their own meal. We invited a big crew over for dinner, set up a deluxe serve-yourself grilled cheese buffet, and let people get to it.

Fishing line helped to hang the simple instructions from the counter to the ceiling – it even looked pretty cool from the backside. Once the decorations were up, we just prepped some sample sandwiches, mostly taken from the awesome menu at Earl’s in NYC, and a big pot of roasted red pepper soups. And that was about it. Even clean up was a breeze. Not a bad way to get credit as hostess while enjoying the party yourself.

    Hi! I love the idea! How did you hang the fish wire? Did you install little hooks?

      Thanks Kat! It was such a fun, simple dinner, seriously. And so nice to let everyone make exactly what they wanted. For the fishing wire – I made it way easier than hooks. I just used clear packing tape to tape the wire both on the ceiling and on the counter to keep it taut. It pulled down easily – no marks at all.

    Very cute set-up! I had one of these parties a few years ago! It was so well received. The invitation was a sandwich!
