Cocktail Bites

The Classics Never Cease To Delight!

Is there anything more gorgeous than these beautiful smoked salmon blinis?! Blinis are Russian mini savoury pancakes that are classically chosen paired with smoked salmon and creme fraiche. I mean of course! Just look at them! gorgeous and dainty and absolutely delicious. Serve these with champagne, wine or cocktails, and your guests will mingle and munch all night long! Otherwise, you can serve them as an amuse bouche at the start of a dinner party until all guests arrive.

Since we are talking canapes and cocktail bites, I thought why not keep with the theme, and speaking of themes why not include a video about a themed cocktail party? So I have attached for you a video that includes the cocktails and the bites all themed too. Use this as an inspiration to spark your creativity. These little details, the theme and the thought process are what make a party so much fun. Go for it and shake things up, your friends will love you for it and your parties will become talk of the town, very irresistible 🙂
