So I am going all alpha mom and want to make some easy, stylish canape type things, nothing try-hard.

Suggestions pleeeeeeeeeeeease?

Buy a packet of croustade shells, some sandwich fillers from the chilled counter and fill the shells with the sandwich filler.

I've done tuna and mayo with a sprinkling of paprika, smoked salmon and cream cheese with a bit of dill and salsa (home made) with coriander to garnish. Looks very profesional!

Also cocktail sticks with cherry tomato and mini mozerrela boll with a basil leaf is nice. Can go retro and put them in the grapefruit half to make a hedgehog.

Blinis with smoked salmon, cream cheese and caviar.

Breadsticks with proscuitto ham twirled round the end.

you could always get some satay chicken from the deli - they're yummy!!!!

starlover go to the back of the class immediately and no smirking behind your hand young lady.

Blinis! Now there's an idea.

little bits of stuff on cocktail sticks is always a winner. food looks good, and is easy to eat.

you can do it as soapbox suggests, or with bits of fruit.

Enid, you need to have a look at the starter selection on! Snigger at 'summer solstice cheese!'
