Bite-size gourmet appetizers are scrumptious finger foods served as party-starters. Low-stress, and inexpensive these are great conversation starters. Planning to organize or host a wedding, a corporate event, a reunion, or a festival? 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 for your guest, of party appetizers 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, relish 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 savory 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.

Know the portion

Wastage is never wise but neither is running out of food before the party is through. So, once you know what to serve it is equally important to learn how much to serve. Of course, the quantity will vary based on the number of guests. But, here is a quick guide to plan your servings better:

Wastage is never wise but neither is running out of food before the party is through. So, once you know what to serve it is equally important to learn how much to serve. Of course, the quantity will vary based on the number of guests. But, here is a quick guide to plan your servings better:

• For 10-12 guest - A 5 appetizer selection

• For approximately 25 guest - 9 appetizers make for the perfect serving

• For 50 and above, 13 or more appetizer selections are recommended

If you feel you might run out of food, we suggest you stock frozen appetizers and dry snacks that can be used if required.
