Assorted cheese and crackers – filling and who doesn’t love cheese. 

Fruit skewers – inexpensive and a very colorful

MichiganGirl24:  Cold apps are easiest.  We did cheese, crackers, sliced meats (summer sausage etc), fruit, veggies, dip, hummus, brownie bites, chips, nuts.  Be prepared to buy a CRAPLOAD depending on your guest list size… we filled up the back of our truck and more.

Hmmm I’d show you a pic but I can’t find any of them that have been uploaded.

Can you do anything hot? What about mac and cheese muffins? Basically you make mac and cheese with your fave recipe and then bake it in muffin tins so they’re bite sized!

Also, pigs in a blanket, chips and salsa/guac bar, meatballs (could do these in a crockpot if needed), potato skins, and stuff others mentioned!

Cheese, lots of it, everyone loves cheese.  Maybe some nice breads and other dips like an artichoke or spinach one.

Meatballs or weenies with BBQ/grape jelly sauce in a crockpot- delicious! Buffalo chicken dip, crab dip, bruschetta or skewers of tomato, mozarella, and bazil on a stick. Fruit salad, cole slaw

Definitely different kinds of cheese, crackers, fruit, cold cuts, olives, antipasto in general. I also love anything on a stick – a caprese skewer, fruit skewer, meatball skewer, anyting!

From the sounds of it, your dinner is going to be very filling (and delicious!) so I would try to stick to lighter things, such as veggies, fruit and crackers. You don’t want everyone to get too full to eat all the rest of your food!

We are doing our apps for cocktail hour ourselves, as well so I totally feel your pain! We are mainly sticking to cold things so we can prep/put them together ahead of time, this is what we are doing : Angel Foodcake Strawberry Kabobs Veggies & dip [broccoli, celery & carrots w/ dip, celery w/ pb] Assorted finger sandwhiches Assorted wraps Mixed fruit in waffle cones Assorted yogurt parfaits We were also considering doing those little blts in a cherry tomato, but we don’t want to go overboard as we are having ALOT of food for dinner. Our dinner is also VERY filled [LOTS of pasta], so we wanted lighter options.

You’ve got a good amount of meat but if you wanted to have some in the apps, we served bacon wrapped dates and they were DELISH.
