Finger Foods can be served at many types of functions. This style of catering offers the flexibility of being a light option before a buffet, or served as a more substantial catering package. Finger Foods can also range from basic snacks to professionally catered gourmet canapes. Catering packages can be tailored to your personal style and may depend on space available, duration of function and guest numbers attending.
Finger Foods are best served to guests while standing or with limited seating. This allows for platters of each option to be walked around to guests over a period of time. A perfect example for finger food service is after a wedding ceremony while guests are socialising. For larger groups it is recommended to have a table of cold canapes ready on guest arrival, with hot options walked around to guests. This ensures each and every person can have easy access.
Finger foods are generally not designed to be served while guests are formally seated, where tapas or entrees are a perfect catering option.
