How Hor d’oeuvres Can Save the Day!


New trends in the entertainment and catering industries are forever changing the way you look at hors d’oeuvres. If you are planning a wedding or party, check out these party-saving tips from professional caterers in your area.

The "Hor D'oeuvres Only" Wedding

A big surprise this year is the increased interest of couples hosting "hor d'oeuvres only" receptions. By comparison, this dining concept is less expensive than your traditional sit-down wedding and offers your guests a wide variety of tasty options.

For afternoon weddings with a casual feel, a table of hor d'oeuvres with a selection of white wines is perfect. Guests can pick and choose what they want, hit the dance floor, and not feel bogged down like they would after a full course meal. Saving money by skipping out on the traditional sit-down service, couples have also been incorporating salad bars, dessert tables, and even ice cream and candy stations.

No-Stress Holiday Parties

Don’t spend your holiday celebrations in the kitchen cooking, prepping, and serving. A selection of your favorite holiday hor d’oeuvres or bite-size versions of your favorite holiday meals will take the stress out of meal planning for your party. This is also a great option for wine tastings and cocktail parties.
