Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and yes – actually picking your teeth. Toothpicks are dirt cheap, easy to find, and can be used for much more than just dislodging popcorn from between your molars. In fact, there are a number of nifty little kitchen hacks that require nothing more than a few toothpicks.
A stunning centerpiece made of fruit.
For a simple DIY that will wow your guests, just pick up a Styrofoam sphere or cone from the craft store, a whole bunch of toothpicks, and some fresh fruit. It’s a lot cheaper than buying one of those pre-made arrangements, which – let’s face it – aren’t usually this fresh. If you’re using cut fruit, you can spritz it with a little lemon juice to keep it from darkening as the party progresses.
