I also love cheese and crackers (especially with wine)

Cold spinach dip? You could have it all like pre-scooped onto nice crackers or french bread slices?

@lilyfaith: Oh wow you just made me really hungry!  Those look amazing!

Here’s 2 suggestions I have:

Proscuitto wrapped melon is super easy.  You can do honeydew or cantalope and either make it a ball or a chunk, then wrap it in the meat and hold everything in place with a handy toothpick!


Tortilla Wraps.  I love so many varieties of this and they’re great finger foods.  The one I make is a cream cheese filled mixture. 

2 blocks cream cheese, softened
1/2 packet of ranch dip mix
1/4 cup chopped celery or green bell pepper
1/8 to 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
handful of finely chopped bacon (or bacon bits)
1 tbsp of chopped black olives (you can buy them in the can pre-chopped)

Mix all ingredients and spread onto tortillas.  Roll tortillas, cut into slices and refridgerate. 

You can also do the wraps with cheese, lettuce, turkey, and tomato or cucumber, or any other combo really.

Good luck!

Veggie and Cheese Tray!  I also love salami and other meats like proscuitto and serrano ham.

Olives and nuts are nice too.

Deviled eggs can be made a day ahead. We are having those as one of our appetizers during our cocktail hour.

I also second the veggie tray and fruit tray ideas.

i second shrimp cocktail! yum!

Also, how about chocolate covered strawberries? They are WAY easier to make than you think. I tried it once and now I do it about once or twice a year and I love them! Everyone is always impressed. It works well with other fruits too!
