You don’t have to be an expert chef or spend a lot of money to serve your party food in style. With these clever tricks, you can transform even the most basic foods – chips, frozen pizzas, watermelon – into something that will impress your friends and minimize your clean-up.

Considering that this is the season for large family gatherings, these tips are extremely helpful. They look great for your party presentation, they don’t require any fancy setup, and cleanup becomes a breeze.

You’ve probably been slaving away to clean your home, get your food prepared, and get your decor in tiptop shape. Needless to say, the last thing you need to worry about when you’re doing something as stressful as hosting, is a messy cleanup.

Here are a few of our favorite party hacks, perfect for any kind of party, any time of year!

Easy Chips and Dip

No bowl designed for chips and dip? There are party platters out there that hold chips in the perimeter and salsa or dip in the center. You don’t have to go out and buy one when you could make your own.

All you have to do is put a wine glass in the center of a bowl, put the chips in the bowl portion and the salsa in the wine glass for easy dipping.

Cook Frozen Pizzas

Frozen pizzas are a great finger food to make for your guests, and it’s easiest for you to make. But sometimes it’s hard to bake multiple pizzas in a normal sized oven. With this hack, you can bake up to four pizzas at once to really conserve gas and space!

Take out both of your oven racks. Cut your pizzas in half and place them around the edges of each rack; you should be able to put two on a rack. Bake as you normally would!
