Who doesn’t love Easter Sunday? It’s a wonderful holiday filled with family, food and fun. Whether you’re having a brunch or dinner after church that day, it’s common for friends and family to gather and celebrate.
One of the items we always make sure we have are appetizers. With so many people hanging out, it’s nice to have food for company to snack on while dinner is being prepared.
Today, we have rounded up some of the most popular Easter appetizer ideas on the site.
Appetizer Tips + Suggestions
Choosing: There are so many appetizer options to choose from. Here are a few ideas to help you plan your menu:
Plan to serve both cold and hot appetizers, savory and sweet, light and heavy. Use contrasting colors and textures too.
Choose Appetizers that are easy to make as well as ones that can be made ahead of time. If you do choose to make, or heat up, appetizers the day of, don’t forget to factor them into the cooking schedule.
Since Appetizers will be served before a large meal, plan for each person to have 4-6 appetizers. The more guests you have the more appetizer options you should plan to offer:
3 appetizer dishes: <10 guests
5 Appetizer dishes: 10-20 guests
7 appetizer dishes: 20-40 guests
9 appetizer dishes: 40+ guests
Uniform: Even though you are serving very different types of appetizers you can tie them all together by making the dishes uniform in other ways. Such as:
Size: Not only do you want the pieces of each appetizer to be similar sizes, but try to make the serving size of the different appetizer options similar as well. Appetizers are usually eaten in 1-3 bites.
Tie the different items together by using similar serving dishes, colors or patterns. Pastel colors and floral patterns are particularly nice to use for Easter.
Use matching signs to label the dishes. Not only does it help the guests know what they’re getting, but using the same type sign helps tie the different appetizers together.
