Appetizers

There are many ways to plan for an event with appetizers. Some people want to assemble their own selections; some are working on a specific budget, while others are looking for a way to offer variety.

The best way to come up with a winning plan is to consider budget, time of day, are your guests light or heavy eaters, and how do you want it to look.

You can offer your guests hors d’oeuvres in a variety of ways:

  • Displays of dips and easy pick ups
  • Samplers that offer variety of easy to pick up items and serve to fill-out a Display
  • Passed “finger food” appetizers
  • Selections of “finger foods” on a display

If you are considering “Heavy Hors D’oeuvres” with some or all of these service styles.
1-3 Dips and Easy Pick Ups or 2 Bite Party Sandwiches (enough to cover guest count)
1-2 Samplers (enough to cover guest count)
2-4 Passed “Finger Foods” (enough pieces to cover guest count 3 times)
