hey bees- hopefully you can think of some better ideas than me! we are doing an appetizer reception and were thinking with the caterer on some unique display choices. we’re doing a gazpacho blanco in shot glasses, and she also has some appetizer spoons we’d like to use. her idea was a blue cheese mouse and we’re not quite sold on that idea yet…do any of you brilliant bees have any ideas fo what we could serve on the spoons?? thanks!!

Well I’m a HUGE blue cheese fan so that sounds good to me, but what about an olive tampanade? That is one of my faves, SO yummy!

How about a mini meatball with sauce? A single grilled shrimp or scallop? Crab salad?

Oooh, those sound delicious as well. I love this idea overall!

I was going to suggest a shrimp mousse of some sort

Do you have a theme in your food or wedding that you are trying to keep with?

A wedding I went to this year had ravioli served on those spoons. Just a single square of goats cheese ravioli in a rich beetroot sauce. OMG it was delicious. This has reminded me to find a recipe for something similar!

Mmmm… I love the grilled shrimp/scallop idea above. Or: stuffed mushrooms, deviled eggs, crab cakes or anything wrapped in bacon!

Just some ideas
– shrimp with avocado mousse
– boursin stuffed tomatoes (grape or cherry)
– mini carmalized onion tarts with stilton
– gorgonzola blackberry reduction bruchetta bites
– grilled octopus
– sweet and spicy shrimp
– honey chipotle beef bites
I’ve made all of these for appetizer spoons (these are the most popular)

oooh yes! i knew you girls were the right ones to ask!
the tapenade sounds great, i’ll have to check if we’ve already selected the meatballs or not (that was an option she had already), raviolis too, for the others we’ve already ordered something similar- boursin stuffed mushrooms, brushetta, jumbo shrimp cocktail, some type of beef sckewer, and puff pastry things. the ceviche was crazy expensive!
i sure hope i have time to try all of the things we’re ordering- i can’t wait to try it all:)
