Canapes are the perfect way to wow your guests when hosting a party. They should be bite size, beautiful and full of flavour.

Whether you are having a formal drinks reception or something a little more relaxed, starting the party with canapes can give your party a real WOW factor.

When organising a get together, there are always a hundred and one things to think about, the  guest list, the drinks, the music, the lights and lest we forget, the FOOD. Rarely do you have time to put together platters of food when you have everything else to think about.

Let me take the stress out of the food by creating a bespoke menu designed around your likes and loves.  Whether it is bite size tartlets to start off the party or providing food for the entire event, creating a smorgasboard of all things tasty, Taste The Love can help your get together run smoothly.

How Many Canapes Per Person?

When organising a party, you want your guests to be full and happy but don’t want to over order and be eating canapes for days after.

For canapes as an alternative to starters you should allow three to five canapes per person.
For a drinks party lasting a couple of hours you should allow eight to ten canapes per person.
For an alternative to dinner you should allow eleven to thirteen canapes per person.

Don’t worry, You don’t need to have thirteen different types of canapes. I would recommend choosing four flavours, then your guests can have three of each type.

If you wanted something a little sweeter you could always provide sweet canapes too!
