Crowd-Pleasing Appetizers for Your Cocktail Hour


Hot dogs, french fries, mac and cheese…all foods more typical of what you would expect to find at a ballpark or a carnival rather than at a wedding. Right? Wrong! More and more couples are choosing to have less formal, comfort foods served during the cocktail hour. And the good news is, they are big hits!

When opting for these unconventional hors d’ouevres, it’s all about the presentation. You will be surprised what you can get away with serving at a formal event, IF you know how to present it in a fun, unique and artistic way. This is where having an experienced and creative caterer really pays off!
