We have your appealing appetizer party covered from the first bite to the last with these adorable mini appetizers and these practical tips to make it a hit!

Know your spread

Lay the groundwork for a diverse spread of party appetizers for your guest, depending on the occasion. Make sure you chalk in all these food categories:

1. Dips and Spreads: Not a category of appetizer, but vital as a pair food that is served along with appetizers like tapenades, relishes and so on.

2. Garden: Apt for health-conscious guests, these appetizers are made from fresh fruits or vegetables and can be cooked or served raw or as stuffing.

3. Snacks: Mainly savoury finger foods such as nuts, chips, popcorn or pretzels – all ready-to-eat appetizers.

4. Starch: Not for the faint-hearted, these are the yummiest and the most irresistible appetizers available - finger sandwiches, dumplings, pizza, bruschetta, rolls, crackers, breadsticks and all the cheesy gooey bites.

5. Protein: A dose of protein-rich food served as delectable bites - meatballs, fish, chicken wings, sushi, egg, cheese and tofu - and you are good to go.

6. Desserts: In bite-sizes these sinful dessert appetizers are perfect to soothe sweet cravings. Line up those cookies, candies, chocolates, or slivers of cake and we bet your guest will leave wanting for more.

Pro Tip: Putting in a little effort to check for guests’ dietary restriction, goes a long way in making everyone feel thought-of and included. Go for an assorted appetizer spread with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options apart from the ones we mentioned above.
