    A bold espresso topped with whipped cream will get guests out of their food coma and back out on the dance floor.

    When it comes to hard-to-eat foods, go miniature. Raspberry flavor mini sorbet cones are so much easier to handle than the original version.

  5. 5. Fruit Parfaits

    If a heavier sit-down dinner was served earlier in the night, the last thing guests will want is a rich, decadent dessert. Instead, offer a sweet treat like these colorful parfaits, which are just as easy on the eyes as they are to eat.

    Nothing says summer quite like cherry cheescake, and these bite-size treats are just the thing. Cheesecake cups displayed on a doily are the perfect complement to an intimate down-home reception.

    Have a guilty-pleasure food? This couple served up the groom's choice -- McDonald's French fries -- but you could pick any sweet or salty treat from your favorite fast-food spot.

    We love the idea of handing out take-out boxes (complete with the your monogram!) for guests to fill up and take home. Package them ahead of time or let guests pick what they want from a dessert bar.

  10. 10. Doughnuts and Milk

    Serving up shot-size drinks with bite-size snacks is so hot right now. This couple paired mini doughnuts with a shot of milk, but we've also seen it done with mini PB&Js, and even with small Oreos.
