Small Bites, Big Tastes

Dec 30, 2013 09:58PM, Published by Anonymous, Categories: Planning



Once you’ve said “I do,” and the groom has kissed the bride, it’s time to get the party started! The cocktail hour sets the tone for the entire wedding reception, and the food just has to be delicious. Whether stationary or passed, the hors d’oeuvres help guests tame their hunger until dinner, as well as make for a nice complement to the signature cocktails the bartender is serving.

Caprese

These bite-sized bits of Italy are perfect for any cocktail hour. The fresh salty mozzarella with the bright juicy tomato pair perfectly with a slice of toasted French bread, giving all the elements of the perfect appetizer in a miniature form.

Crudites

For the veggie lover, these little shooters are just right. The glass fits the right amount of veggies with the dip right beneath, perfect for getting your veggie fix without the messy fingers or extra napkins.

Tuna Tartar Cones

These tuna tartar cones bring us all back to the old days with our ice cream cones. But this time, the caterer is stepping it up with wasabi instead of rainbow sprinkles. These cones are the perfect portable appetizer that leaves your hands free and your taste buds singing.

Tomato Bisque

When mingling around at a reception, you want to keep your hands as free as possible for hand-shaking and picture-taking. These tomato bisque soup shooters are perfect for both.

Chicken Salad Cups

The perfect appetizer is the one-bite wonder. These chicken salad cups are the perfect bite of salty chicken, creamy mayonnaise, and sweet cranberries. A surprising twist on an old favorite can be the right dose of surprise for your guests.

Fruit Cups

If your guests don’t have a huge sweet tooth, the best dessert to go with is fruit. These mini fruit cups are the perfect bite, with berries and almonds wrapped up in a flaky puff pastry. The fresh fruit makes the perfect after-dinner bite.

Grilled Zucchini Rollups

Grilled zucchini rollups are a great bite of freshness for any wedding. The grilled zucchini brings out a sweet flavor, mixed with the tart freshness of the red pepper makes a match made in veggie heaven.

 

Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon

These prosciutto-wrapped melon bites are a great way to bring the salty and the sweet together. These bites are very easy to prepare and can be left simple with just the prosciutto and melon, or can be pumped up with a touch of balsamic vinaigrette and black pepper.
