Finger foods are a staple of party appetizers—easy to serve and easy to eat, these snacks can range from pre-cut vegetables to fancy hors d’eouevres. Sometimes it’s fun to step away from our usual appetizers and try something new! Here are 7 unique finger food ideas to consider serving at your next party.

The beautiful Caprese Skewers from Projects for Your Nest look amazing and are a perfect way to turn traditional Caprese Salad into a finger food.

In keeping with the ever popular tomato and cheese theme, these toasts d by Woman’s Day are another great classic appetizer to serve.

A unique alternative to a traditional veggie tray are salad shots d on Colin Cowie weddings. I love the idea of having the dip or dressing already in individual portions so guests can eat and mingle without hovering over the dip bowl!

I can’t wait to try this ham and cheese pretzel bite recipe at Seeded at the Table, what a fantastic savory treat!

These crescent bacon cheddar pinwheels on Key Ingredient are easy to make and sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Individual soups are quickly growing in popularity as appetizers. Take it up a notch by serving individual grilled cheese bites and tomato basil soup shooters. What’s not to love about that classic combination?

Finally, while vegetable trays are a party classic, serving individual sliced Peppers with Gluten Free Hummus as d on Simply Gluten-Free is an elegant (and allergy friendly!) alternative.

For your next party think beyond chips and dip and serve some of these out of the box finger foods-your guests will thank you! Finally, if you’re serving your finger foods and party appetizers on a table, remember to cover it with a Bright Settings’ tablecloth.
