May 24, 2023 Desiree Homer

When it comes to creating memorable event experiences, you know, as an event planner, the important role that food plays in those experiences. And you know you also have to do more than just book a caterer for the main dinner service. You’ll need snacks and hors d’oeuvres, latte bars and espressos, and signature cocktails, too. Of all these tasty elements, it’s the appetizer that can make the first impression on your event guests. And without serving one, your attendees could get "hangry." Whether you’re entertaining corporate guests or a family-centric bar/bat mitzvah party, these delectable appetizers are sure to elevate and delight all your attendees!

Smoked Salmon Bites

Smokey and satisfying, these easy-to-consume appetizers are always a hit, especially as a precursor to a fabulous meal.

Mini Tourtieres (Beef or Veggie)

One-bite beef or veggie tourtieres are tasty morsels that are perfect for satisfying those guests' pre-dinner hunger pangs.

Lamb or Garlic Chicken Skewers

Grab more than a bite or two of energy-boosting protein with select recipes of lamb or chicken skewers.

Deviled eggs are always a hit among event guests, especially when you can spruce them up with lobster or other flavors.
