Prettily Packaged Leftovers For Guests

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

While I love having friends over for dinner, I’m often guilty of making far too much food. And while I love leftovers the next day, I’m not the biggest fan of leftovers day after day after day. So why not send something home with your guests? In style.

From sweetly shaped pie boxes to sturdy handled bags and the beloved Weck Jars we’ve written about in the past, here are a few practical and pretty ideas to send your leftovers packing to a new home.

Wedge-Shaped Pie Boxes: Nothing makes a guest happier than getting to take home a slice of pie for the next morning.
To-Go Bags Kraft-colored bags are common, but we like these white bags for stylishly transporting leftovers.
Square Boxes: Their little-bit different shape makes them charming yet they’re still practical, and they stack nicely. Slap a sweet tag on them if you’d like or wrap with a little baker’s twine and your guests are good to go.
Weck Jars are functional for canning, pretty for pantry storage, and wonderful for storing and transporting leftovers. Bonus: guests can reuse the jars after they finish the contents!
