mashed potato bar

The mashed potato bar is one wedding trend that I love. I’ve always had a thing for mashed potatoes (who doesn’t?) and the thought of drenching them in a medley of delicious toppings is so much fun! (Check out these other options for food stations at your wedding.)

Here’s the low-down on the mashed potato bar:

The mashed potatoes are usually served in martini glasses. Hence the name, mashtini.

Guests apply toppings themselves to create their own mashtinis.

Fixens might include:

sour cream
red peppers

The options are endless!

You can also have themed mashtinis. If you love Mexican food, have a Mexican mashed potato bar. If Mediterranean is more your thing, have plenty of feta, olives and tomatoes on hand for a Mediterranean mashed potato bar.

If you don’t have a mashed potato bar at your wedding, why not serve mashtinis at your wedding shower or rehearsal dinner?
