    Easy finger food

    Finger foods make wonderful party refreshments. Guests are able to pick and choose what they like, and the food can be served either in buffet style or via elegant waiters with trays. Fingers foods allow guests to mix and mingle while enjoying their food, and it makes it easy for them to sample a little of each item. Some excellent finger food ideas include devilled eggs, sushi, mini sandwiches and desserts.

    Devilled eggs

    Make a tray of devilled eggs for the party guests. Not only are the tasty treats easy to whip up, but they are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Use your favourite recipe, and top each egg with a sliced black olive for presentation. It is easiest to serve devilled eggs in trays that are made specifically for them.

    Serve sushi to a sophisticated crowd. To make things easier, preorder a variety of sushi rolls from your favourite Japanese restaurant and pick it up right before the guests arrive. You can also serve seaweed salad and small bowls of miso soup along with the sushi.
