Some valuable tips on what to serve when you are planning for a cocktail party.
Just don't overdo but keep everything in balance.
You can limit the options by making 3-4 hors d'oeuvres and serve them with conviction. Don't try preparing too much and then exhaust yourself serving them, and can make your guests feel perplexed every time another tray is served one after the other.
Consider bite-size foods which need contrast. For instance, if you're considering serving pigs in a blanket, pair it with a cooling sour-cream and mustard dips since they can be quite salty. Some spiced meat patties can go well with pieces of mild, crunchy lettuce.
For guests trying to be virtuous, try offering fresh veggies. You can also try baking some store-bought fresh gnocchi in a 400-degree oven for 10 minutes on each sides. Organize them into a bowl and scatter with coarse salt.
