When it comes to serving your guests, presentation is key. To help make your appetizers even more enticing, try these helpful hints:
Be sure to use attractive serving platters. Hors d'oeuvre trays and platters can be made of porcelain, glass, hand-painted ceramics, wood, woven baskets, copper, brass and many more materials.
To make a wonderful and decorative statement, garnish the trays with fresh flowers, herbs or any other trimmings.
It is important that the appetizers you choose offer a nice variety of shapes, sizes and colors as well as different ingredients and taste profiles.
Serve the appetizers buffet-style and use stacks of books or inverted pots to create varying levels for the dishes. For a lovely touch, adorn the table with unscented candles (you don't want to interfere with the wonderful aromas of the food!).
Looking for a fun, unique way to entertain? Instead of serving a full dinner, try serving small plates of appetizers! It's a fun, delicious way to sample a variety of dishes.
