The heat is already arriving and light food options are sounding tastier! While waiting for your arrival start your guests off with a pecan chicken salad crostini paired with spiked raspberry lemonade to freshen their pallets. A caprese skewer drizzled with an aged balsamic vinegar will offer your guests a unique and delicious take on a classic pairing. Another crowd favorite are jumbo shrimp shooters, jumbo shrimp served with tequila red sauce in a shot glass, pictured below. These must have lighter hors d’oeurves are sure to start the night off right!
What party is complete without fabulous cocktails?Fruity and flavorful drinks are always a crowd pleaser. Drinks such as strawberry margaritas and mojito’s will keep the heat simmered. Try a mini version of these classic cocktails paired with a favorite light hors d’oeurve! Mini cocktails and tiny hors d’oeurves are very trendy this wedding season!
Give your guests some fun, bubbly options! Add a champagne bar to your cocktail hour, mix champagne with fresh fruit and name the drinks around your wedding theme. Try “Diamond Fizz” or “Something Blue!” Your guests will love the personal connection and your attention to detail. Summer in Texas is hot! hot! hot!, but by keeping the food and beverage light your guests won’t be bogged down by heavy cuisine and will be able to help you celebrate the night away!
