Tapas Style Party

December 17, 2009

Going out to a tapas dinner is one of my favorite things to do with friends and family.  I love being able to taste so many different foods.  There is something special about sharing and passing food…it really creates a common bond with everyone sitting at the table.  It becomes more than just dinner, it’s an experience. 

Consider serving tapas at your next event.  The guests will really enjoy all the different items to taste.   It will create a very lively environment.

   

 

Serving glasses of sangria as guests enter the party is a great way to get things started. 

Hire a Spanish guitarist to really set the tone with authentic Spanish music.

 

 

If you don’t want to create a Spanish theme you can serve a tapas style menu (small plates) but it doesn’t have to be Spanish foods.  Here are some beautiful examples of small plates that would be great at a party or wedding. 

   

If you are going to serve tapas for your event or wedding I would suggest serving 8 to 10 different items.  I would also suggest not putting more than 8 guests per table so there is enough elbow room.  Also, make sure that each platter of food that comes around has a little more servings than the amount of guests at the table (8 guests = 10 servings). 

Your guests will really enjoy the variety and creativity of the menu.  It will really bring all the guests together for a great experience.
