Ain’t No Party Without Food — Bookish Food Ideas For Your Bookish Party {Top Ten Tuesday}

20200505 Bookish Food Ideas

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s topic is all about bookish parties and I wanted to highlight one of the crucial elements (and my favorite) of any party, namely THE FOOD. Now a little disclaimer: I am no kitchen princess. I’m not even a kitchen mouse. I suck at cooking, baking and anything related to it and I’m not very fond of it either. But eating, especially sweets and snacks? I am awesome at that!

So I did not come up with any of the ideas below, nor do I have any idea on the difficulty levels of them (okay to be fair, some of these seem easy enough for even me to pull them off). But all of them look good and like a lot of fun for any bookish party for young and old!

Book themed cupcakes

Book themed cupcakes mixed with signature range vanilla

If you’d like to keep your bookish party general and classy, one can never go wrong with bookish cupcakes!


Polyjuice Potion Punch

Polyjuice Potion Recipe - TGIF - This Grandma is Fun

I would not add any hairs to this recipe to make sure no one would accidentally turn into a cat, but if you don’t do that I’m sure you’ll be just fine!


Ferrero Rocher Golden Snitches

Ferrero Rocher golden snitches

Hey look, I love Ferrero Rochers and this is a fun and easy (definitely Lindsey-proof) “recipe”.


Blue chocolate chip cookies

Literary Food_ 20 Bookish Treats to Buy and Bake – Vivian parkin Derosa

If Percy Jackson likes it, it can’t be bad right? A guaranteed hit with kids and adult chocolate lovers alike 🙂


Elven Lembas Bread


When the party will last a long, long time, get some lembas bread for the journey!


Peeta’s Burnt Nut and Raisin Bread


Admittedly, bread alone does not look very festive, but add some butter or nice dip and I would love it!


Alice In Wonderland Eat Me Cookies


I’m not sure if these cookies will actually turn you into a giant or shrink you, but they do LOOK delicious and honestly, I’m not sure if I’d be any better than Alice at walking away without eating one.


Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

You could always just add regular oreos to the party table and call it done (that would be my strategy), but this cheesecake also looks waaaaay too delicious.


And when in doubt…



Tell Me:
would you like to have any of these at a bookish party? And would you try your hand at making them yourself or are you like me and would you just eat them?

    1. Haha yeah, I was drooling just writing this list 🙂 The cookies look weirdly delicious and I may need to venture into the kitchen to try them anyway 🙂

  3. Oh all these foods look so good!

    1. If these snacks were at a party, I’d have trouble leaving the snack table haha 🙂

  4. I really like this list! There are definitely some items on here I think I should try baking (I’m a little more successful with baking than you but I definitely can’t cook)

    I’d love to try that cheesecake in particular!

    1. Oh, good luck with the baking! I hope the cheesecake will be as delicious as it looks like 🙂

  5. Those cupcakes are the cutest things ever and who can resist a blue cookie? Great list!

  6. HODORITOS!! *screams* xD

    My TTT .

    1. You’d be very welcome to all of these bookish snacks! 🙂

  9. I would love to try all of these, especially that cheesecake!

    1. I love cheesecake, and added Oreos would just be the cherry on top 🙂

  10. Now I’m hungry ? ? Great list! I love all of these ideas! And those blue cookies look delicious!

    1. Haha I can imagine, just making this post got me super hungry ? The blue cookies look both weird and delicious!

  11. Aaaand now I’m really hungry! Those Ferrero Rocher snitches are so cute!

    1. Haha I can imagine, just making this post got me so hungry 😉 And the Ferrero Rocher snitches seem so cute, delicious and easy enough to make 🙂

  12. You had me at cupcakes and then you added cookies… Now, I need to bake because the cravings are real! These all sound like winners for a bookish party!

    1. All the good stuff, haha 🙂 Good luck with the baking and hope they’ll be as delicious as they look.

    My TTT

    1. Haha, same! The blue cookies look both weird and delicious 🙂

  14. Great list! Polyjuice Potion Punch looks SO fun, and I love those Alice in Wonderland cookies. I’d definitely like an invitation to your party!

    1. Thanks! And of course, you’re very welcome to the party (and the snacks) 😉

  15. Hodoritos!! Stop it I’m dying here! Not so sure about blue food myself, but maybe I can be persuaded! Great party food ideas here – can I have an invite, please! My TTT is here if I can extend in invitation back to you!

    1. Haha one can never go wrong with Hodoritos 😉 I haven’t tried the blue food yet myself, but it looks… intriguing. Yes, you’re definitely invited to the party!

  16. I probably wouldn’t try to make most of these. Too much work. But I think I could manage sticking Oreos into a cheesecake.

    1. Haha that would be my contribution too probably 😉

  17. Those cupcakes are adorable!!!

    1. They do look adorable (and delicious) 🙂

  18. What a wonderful idea for a party. Can I come?

    1. Of course you’re welcome to join the bookish party (and eat the snacks 😉 )

      1. That’s great. They all look so fantastic. I’ll bring my book cake. 😉

        1. Haha please do bring the book cake 😉

          1. Definitely. 😉

      2. By the way, have I mentioned that I have lived in Belgium once. Years ago. I even met my husband there.

        1. That’s so cool that you loved in Belgium and met your husband here! We’re a small country but still nice I think haha 🙂

          1. Definitely nice. We don’t live as close anymore as we used to but we still love going back. Had planned a weekend with my three brothers and their wives for August which now has to be cancelled but there’s hopefully a chance next year.
