Delicious, Elegant, and a bit Whimsical – Small Bites
Use your imagination … display is key. Use martini glasses, wine glasses, champagne flutes, shot glasses, square plates, rectangular plates, and round plates. They don't need to match and high quality clear or black plastic is fine.
Some of our favorites …
- prosciutto and sliced smoked salmon wrapped asparagus tied with chives
- salmon and/or tuna tartar
- deviled eggs
- mini burgers and pigs in a blanket
- sliced filet mignon on baguette topped with a dollop of horseradish sauce
- tea sandwiches (be sure to cut off the crusts and use cookie cutters to create interesting shapes)
- cheese tortellini with various sauces
- individual pizza slices with interesting toppings
- marinated herrings on mini pumpernickel breads
