So you’ve decided to splash out for a big party. It might be for a special birthday or anniversary. It might be your only child is graduating college. You’ve spent a lot of time finding the right venue in Orlando and ensuring you didn’t miss anyone on the guest list. Now, it’s time to decide what to serve at your party. You’ve heard that sit down meals are out of style. More and more people are using cooking stations and food carts. Here are some bite-size appetizers of comfort food to consider for your once in a lifetime party.

Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

While it might seem weird to offer a stack of grilled cheese sandwiches and bowls of soup, there is a new modern twist on this idea. For this treat, serving staff will circulate with extra tall shot glasses half full of tomato soup and a quarter piece of grilled cheese sandwich attached as a tasty garnish. Your guests will eat the sandwich and then drink the soup as ascrumptious treat.

Sliders and Mini Artisanal Beers

If your party is mostly for the over 21 crowd, you should consider a table of sliders and mini artisanal beers. On one layer, the caterer puts out sliders with hamburgers, pork sandwiches or chicken sandwiches. The next layer offers a selection of small glass filled with an artisanal beer from a local brewery. You can offer as many layers as you need.

Chicken and Waffles

Here in the south, comfort food is synonymous with chicken and waffles. However, you want this to be an appetizer not a large plated dish. Your caterer can make up trays of mini waffles topped with a well-seasoned chicken tender for the servers to distribute with a side of maple syrup.
