@AllieBee12:  Oh man, I love cocktail food! Love love love. I have a hard time not hovering around the food when I’m at holiday parties.

You have some great choices already! Here are some more suggestions.

Good luck! I hope your party is delicious.

@AllieBee12:  I like the menu so far, I would also add veggies/fruit and dip, easy and always nice to have some greenery at these events.

My all time favourite cocktail food is spring rolls! Not the tiny, mostly-pastry-with-a-bit-of-filling, but substantial meat and veg spring rolls (our reception will have duck and asian veg to make it a bit ‘fancier’) with a bit of sweet chilli or sweet plum sauce to dip them in 😀 Might seem a bit ‘common’ compared to the rest of your menu, but I just love them and they always seem to go very quickly at events I’ve been to!

@AllieBee12:  if you have vegetarians, i would definitely label your apps, so they know what is safe to eat (especially for pastry wrapped items). I just went to a wedding, and the vegetarians in attendance were unsure what they could and couldnt eat!

I was thinking more like plain veggies and dip, I love love love pastry wrapped apps and cheese but I like to balance with raw veggies. Plus, veggies are easy and keep well.

@AllieBee12:  As a vegetarian, I love mini quiches (you can get bite-size ones). And I love the little phyllo triangles, but definitely label them! 🙂 Also, roasted veggies, fresh fruits, and cheese are always popular.

For an open house, I really like to do a cheese and charcuterie boar – there’s hardly any prep, and it can sit out for the duration of the party with no effort of your part. I usually do a cheddar, a double or triple cream cheese like Brie, a blue cheese, and either a goat cheese or marinated mozzarella, plus salami, prosciutto, and capicola on the meat side, with cornichons, mixed olives, grainy mustard and some dried or fresh fruit.
