Hors d’oeuvres Reception

Let Us Customize a Menu or Your Event!

A menu of heavy hors d’oeuvres invites guests to sample a delicious variety of savory tidbits.

The French have another charming phrase: amuse-bouche, or “amuse the mouth” for these small bites. Don’t let their size fool you, these tasty “bites” can replace a meal and allow you to express your personal or corporate personality.

Below is a sampling of what can be done with hors d’ oeuvres — but it really is only a “taste”! Please contact one of our banquet and catering specialists to create the perfect menu for your special occasion.
