Don’t you love when you hit upon an idea that is brilliant? This doesn’t happen very often at all but when it does it’s almost magical! While setting an al fresco table for a group of friends I ran out of room for the appetizers. So instead of spreading the appetizers out like I normal would… I went vertical!!! How smart was that? I used a pretty silver tiered tray to plate the appetizers! Easy and pretty. Functional and fabulous. Just my style…
Today is DIY TIPS AND TRICKS! You can see my blogging buddies ideas at the end of this post!
I’m all about easy appetizers! If I cook dinner I buy appetizers. Period! And you can get some pretty delicious bites at your local grocer’s.
For this vertical appetizer I bought fruit already cut up in the produce aisle, meats and cheeses from the deli, crackers, and olives and pickled veggies from the olive bar. Couldn’t have been more simple!
The key to making an appetizer look scrumptious is to make it colorful! YUMMY!
Add some cute plates and napkins and you are all ready for your guests!
Here are some fun appetizer combinations for your next get-together!
- mini quiche
- crab puffs
- mini hot dogs
- mozzarella balls
- bruschetta and toast rounds
- artichoke hearts
- mini egg rolls
The next time company’s coming think VERTICAL!
