Throwing a party is one thing, but making the hors d’oeuvres and appetizers is another. Choosing what to make is the hardest part, right next to buying all the ingredients while staying on budget. When you’re only serving finger food for the night, like most parties do, it’s best to make them rich in meat or protein to keep your guests’ energy high. While chicken wings and cocktail wieners are both delicious, they aren’t considered the classiest hors d’oeuvres out there. When you’re stuck trying to come up with a delicious set of appetizers that complement each other, this article is here to help you choose.
