I usually make desserts, salads and meats; but buy crackers, cheeseballs and cheeses, chips, breads or buns & paper plates & napkins.
chips and dips.

I thought frozen foods would be a larger percentage. Ice cream parties must not be as popular as I thought!
The stats do seem accurate and most common when hosting get togethers or parties . A common thing I consider buying or having is chips and dip as well as drinks . It?s easy to prepare and clean up.
If I had taken these surveys my results would pretty much be the same as the majority answer of each question. If I'm hosting I generally splurge on decorations. My host shopping list will always have baby back ribs, corn on the cob and red potatoes.
I agree with the above but do not put out cookies. Usually veggies, dips, cheese, and crackers.
I agree. Chips, dip, cheese, summer sausage and crackers are a go to party purchase.
I agree with the results, when hosting I feel cheese, crackers, chips/dip are the easiest go to snacks for a party as everyone never turns it down.
I agree with the results. Shopping at the grocery store is truly a favorite of mine. I love preparing my own cheese/meat platter, chips/salsa and various desserts.
My family usually splurges on meat and prepared foods when we have get togethers.
Yes, I agree especially on the chips & dip, and cheese platters but ours usually have something not very many others have...bacon wrapped dove...❤❤
Yes, I do agree with these survey results. When I'm hosting friends over for a summer meal, I buy some nice meat like steak and or ribs or salmon, box rice pilaf or potatoes, lots of fresh veggies for salad and I usually make a homemade pie and pair it with ice cream. For appetizer I buy grapes, fresh fruit, crackers, cheese, almonds and chips and salsa. I do most of my shopping at the grocery store.
I agree with the results; but was surprised to see cheeses with such a high percentage...I never buy cheeses for entertaining.
I agree with the info above. I love to splurge on sweets or protein
