Elegant hors d'oeuvres for cocktail party?

Maya | Nov 15, 2006 10:45 PM

I'm on the hunt for some new recipes for our annual holiday cocktail party. It's pretty small (about 20-30 people tops) and I like to have a variety of food offerings.

Anyone have any recommendations for recipes, or ideas for store-purchased items that would fit the bill? I usually have a sushi platter, cheese board, spiced nuts, and several other items (including something meat-related, and dessert, of course).

Ideally, recipes for this occasions are:

- elegant/sophisticated, but not fussy
- most or all components can be made in advance
- bite-sized
- warm is OK, but not in a chafing dish (just passed on platters)
- extremely delicious

I need some new ideas! Thank you!!
