S'Mores Bar questions...

I've been seeing lots of cute pictures on here of people planning to have S'mores bars at their weddings. I LOVE this idea, but I'm trying to figure out the practical aspects of how to do this.


My wedding is on January 1, and the reception is indoors.


This page has a lot of pictures of different kinds of bars.


I'm trying to figure out if you would just get sterno cans and build some sort of container to hold them/keep them from tipping over...


I ve been seeing photo 1300741-1


like this...


or if I should invest in a bunch of mini Hibachi grills (Pu-Pu grills). They're kind of expensive (I'm seeing $30-ish pretty much everywhere) and I'm not sure how you would fuel them.

Pu-Pu grill


I guess I'm just wondering


A) If anyone has used a little hibachi grill like this, and if was effective


B) What would be the safest option for an indoor reception?


 


P.S. LauraSweet, I know you're looking at doing this, too! I think our minds are totally on the same wavelength... same colors and all!

Before you get to involved with this idea... talk to your venue to see if they will allow open flame with that intention. It might be an insurance risk they do not want to take on.

If you decide to do like the top picture, you could get a pretty potting container (shaped like the one in the pic) and then put your cans in it surrounded by rocks that coordinate with your colors.

Yeah, that's the one I'm planning on copying.  I need to ask the secretary at the venue if we'll be allowed to do something like that.  I'll see her at church tonight.  I know they have outdoor campfire locations, but I think our reception will be over before dark, so I don't want to do that.

OMG...i love this!!!


I like the idea of the long box (like the first pic) but have no idea how you would do it....maybe print off the picture and take it to lowes/home depot? They might have a suggestion....they will be setting up their seasonal area to shortly so there will probably be someone around who knows alot about bbq's etc. there too...

FarmBride -- Smores are like a graham cracker sandwich.  It's a roasted marshmall, stuck on top a piece of chocolate, smushed between graham crackers.  Delicious!

We did a open bonfire on the beach for our welcome party.


Im not sure about the sterno thing... I always heard that you souldn't eat things cooked on it.but this is what there page says


Question Can food be prepared directly over the flame?
Although the emissions will not cause harm, it is not recommended. Certain foods may drip or burn and cause dangerous flare-ups resulting in bodily harm or damage to property. Do not attempt to eat any food that has fallen into the can or may have cooking fuel on it.


QuestionWhat happens if the cooking fuel is consumed internally?
If Sterno® is ingested, please immediately call Poison Control at 1-888-313-8954. A medical specialist will advise you of the appropriate course of action. This number is staffed by certified medical professionals and is for MEDICAL EMERGENCIES ONLY. Alternately, you may seek medical attention.


 


I love the idea of the outdoor courtyard with the fire pit set up

kristamarie - you just gave me the BEST idea!!! I was originally going to do a smoores station at the wedding, but for around 200 people, that could get nuts. We're having our rehearsal dinner on the patio of the restaurant where my parents had their engagement dinner (and 25th anniversary party). SMOORES!!!
