Easy Cocktail Party Finger Food Ideas for a Crowd
You accomplish several helpful objectives by simply offering one or two bite finger foods. You can reduce the cost for plates and flatware as well as volume of trash a party otherwise creates. There is also more variety for your guests. A general guideline is to plan for five to six different foods and two of each item per guest. Even if you hold your event near mealtime, there is plenty of food for your party attendees as it all averages out as some people eat more and other less of something.
Spread Out Party Foods
Set out the food stations or platters scattered throughout the space to keep the party flowing. As they pass by or stop to chat, they have interesting and tasty looking items within hands reach. You can also avoid the congestion that tends to build up if you offer your food all in one location by spreading the offerings around the room. This tactic also helps keep food available throughout the event as it discourages the people with eyes bigger than their stomach and not wanting to wait in line again.
List of Many Party Foods
Guest dietary restrictions should be a consideration. Having an assortment of options helps ensure everyone has something to eat, even if they are limited on the menu. Be sure the mom to be dietary restrictions are known, as she will be the most likely to have them. Use your best judgment and avoid food she loves but can’t have. If possible, ask your guests about food allergies and restrictions as well. A few vegan or vegetarian options are also ideal to include.
