Cheese and crackers are great.  Especially because you can just put out big blocks and baskets of crackers, making it very easy!

Dips and crackers too, like hummus, tzatziki (sp?), artichoke, babaganoush.

Popcorn = affordable and salty, also not really messy!

Salsa(s) and chips, though this can be a bit messy for nice clothes.  It’s very affordable.

Search further back in the Food category for more ideas as well.

The caterer is providing pasta salad, turkey cheese rollups, veggies and dip, and fruit. We’re making hummus with pitas, buying some kind of dip in bulk from Costco like Salmon Dip with crackers, chicken salad in phyllo cups, and mini quiches. We are thinking of adding olives, nuts, etc.

I haven’t, but I would do Costco. And all foods that could be served cold or room temp.

i’m thinking about this as well and here’s my list of DIY hors d’oeuvres that I think won’t be to much of a headache to do ourselves:

  • cut cheese and cured meat and crackers
  • cut veggies and dip and hummus and pita chips
  • Fruit: grapes, strawberries, cut cantaloupe, cut watermelon
  • chips, salsa, buffalo chicken dip
  • stacked tomato, mozzarella, basil
  • baked brie & crackers
  • sweet and sour meatballs
  • shrimp cocktail

You could make mini quiches – different flavors.

Are you wanting to DIY (make everything yourself)? Semi-DIY (buy pre-fab’d)? Or out-source (caterer)?

If you want to purely DIY, I’d suggest platters (ex. fruit platter, veggies & dip, cheese & crackers, etc.) — they’re very easy to put together, and don’t take up too much time or money. If you want something a little more challenging, maybe make some little trusted & true appies (brushetta/tapenades? chips & dip? stuffed mushrooms? piggies in a blanket?).

If you’d rather buy pre-made ones and just lay them out, I’d suggest a store like Costco or Superstore, to save by buying bulk. This way you can get some “fancier” things, but not have to make them yourself.
