Sometimes choosing the right recipes can be difficult and this is why the best solution is to look for a theme: for example you can organize a Mexican night a Chinese menu or a Hawaiian party and prepare recipes that can be found in these countries kitchens. This will help you make up your mind faster and surprise your guests as well. You just have to search the Internet find some easy recipes and use your creativity. Some of the most popular are the Chinese appetizers which are also known as dim sum.
Just remember these key rules when deciding what to make. 1. Presentation is everything. Coordinate your easy party appetizers with the party theme by using decorative platters and adding a little flair to your food. Think about the theme of your party. For example if you re throwing a Hawaiian-themed party you probably won t want to serve caviar or Italian-style appetizers. Try using recipes that have ingredients commonly found in native Hawaiian food. Use your imagination. Also remember that food only looks as good as the dish you re serving it on so choose platters in solid bold colors. And for a little extra fun stick the food with colorful toothpicks plastic swords or cocktail umbrellas (whatever goes with your theme). 2. Use simple fresh and quality ingredients.
