Cocktail Party Food Sydney Melbourne Brisbane Adelaide

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010
Great parties don’t just happen do they? Even the simplest occasion requires some forethought by the host and hostess. Today many of the more formal occasions and celebrations have moved away from the traditional sit down meal to a cocktail party.see

The cocktail party can of course vary between an elegant formal function, requiring the little black cocktail dress and black tie for the boys, to a bright and breezy informal affair with lively music and brightly coloured drinks in the safety of your own backyard! Whatever the occasion the cocktail party is a popular and modern way to entertain.

The first step is to decide what type of party it will be. Is it a special occasion to celebrate a milestone, or a get together to celebrate the springtime or festive season? Consider what sort of decorations will suit the occasion and what sort of music and lighting will be appropriate as well to provide just the right ambiance. Next of course you must decide the when and where. Will it be outside on a balmy night or inside with the fire ablaze! Be practical when you look at the space and consider the number of people the space provided will hold.

The trick to conquering the cocktail party and hosting a successful event is being organised. Start planning early as well as ordering and shopping early for any non perishable items including alcohol. Working in advance means there is less left to the last minute…….reducing stress levels for the host/hostess. You should be able to enjoy the evening yourself and not be a slave to the kitchen or bar!

Now for the food!
The number and types of finger food you serve all depend on the event you are hosting. For a cocktail party, finger food will be the focus, so be sure you have plenty to go around!

Type of Event Number of Appetizers
Cocktail Party:
4 hours
10-12 pieces per person
*You may like to include an extra 1 or 2 sweet offerings if serving coffee.
Dinner Party:
Pre dinner
4 to 5 pieces per person for an early meal
6 per person for a later meal
Variety: 8 different varieties if 50+ people
4 to 5 different varieties for 20+ people
3 different varieties for small gatherings
