Are you planning on hosting a waffle party, or thinking about doing so? Congratulations!
This page includes a number of resources and tools. Some are for hosting waffle parties in general, and some are specifically for vegan waffle parties.
Included are printable waffle party dish labels, educational literature on veganism, media and press release templates, logos, a potential event funding resource, and links to posts with additional waffle party ideas and tips.
Waffle Party Dish Labels
At any food party, dietary needs can be diverse. When it’s potluck style, trying to track down who made a specific topping or dish can be tricky.
These printable vegan waffle party dish labels include blanks for guest name, topping name, and common allergens. They will make things easier for you and your guests.
If you’re throwing a vegan waffle party, you may wish to place out some educational literature for guests who choose to know more. Here are a few resources to get you started; we’ll likely be adding more in the future. More links are on the bottom half of the Veganism FAQs page.

Logos for Banners & Posters
If you’re creative, please have fun and design your own promotional materials. We welcome you to show them off on the Vegan Waffles Facebook page. We’ve posted a few samples, and you might even check out some of the designs at the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale (another great event to participate in) for inspiration. But in case you’re limited on time, we’ve designed a few versions of logos for you. You’re welcome to incorporate any of them into your own designs.
