11 Mess-Free Foods That Are Perfect for Cocktail Hours
A standing cocktail hour is the perfect transition between a wedding ceremony and a reception. But keeping guests happy and well fed with minimal table space and no seating can be a logistical nightmare. Nothing is worse than cumbersome appetizers and a stained party dress when you’re hungry! Here are some appetizers that reduce the risk of stained clothes, messy hands and crumbs on the floor.
To keep guests satisfied (and sober) before the seated meal, protein is a must. Grilled meats on a skewer are the ultimate easy-to-eat-while-standing food. Cut down on mess potential by making sure there isn’t too much meat on the skewer and that it’s completely pierced through.
Spiced Feta Cubes
Skip the party nuts and go for this smarter salty snack. Cubed and spiced feta (with herbs, red pepper or other options) is easy to serve on a pick and pair with other menu flavors. It’s another gluten-free option, too!
