Appetizer Party

590A6807 1024x682 Appetizer Party

This is a party I’ve been wanting to have for years, literally.  Remember my mini Valentine’s party a few years ago?  But I couldn’t totally pull it off because I couldn’t find the right dishes, utensils, or serving vessels for all the finger foods I wanted to serve.  At Martha Stewart’s American Made event a few months ago, while most people were talking about Blake Lively’s dress, I was asking everyone where they got those mini-wooden spoons on the buffet tables….And then, last month, I finally found my answer:

They offer what every food fanatic, food blogger, stylist, and chef dreams of: the pretty.  So, I decided to put my new finds to good use and have a small baby playdate at my house to meet some of the new moms in my 8 month old’s daycare class, which she’ll be joining this fall.

There are endless possibilities for nearly all of their products.  Like, for example, these embellished wooden skewers and multi-patterned straws, which were so pretty I used not only for the drinks, but also as part of my tablescape.

And these crazy cool pedestals….

ravioli and cheese

Mini-cups and spoons–these are in seaform (that I used to serve tomato soup and mini grilled cheese with mini sides of sweet potato fries and ketchup)….




Wooden disposable serving utensils, knotted bamboo skewers, and bamboo boats that I used for my Cobb Salads on a Stick….

Cone stands–there are so many cool ways to use these and I can wait to think of more….

almonds rasberries

And disposable bamboo plates and mini-forks, perfect for meatballs and rice.




There are so many possibilities with all of’s products–it inspired me to try some new ideas–it’s really a Pinner’s paradise.

And everything was a big hit with the babies and baby mamas!
