Serving Hors d’oeuvres with Skewers

Cubes of cheese, fresh fruits, hot finger foods, cherry tomatoes… Options are so various when it comes to hors d’oeuvres!

If you are not familiar with the term “hors d’oeuvre”, it comes from the French and literally means “outside of work”. Small portions of food, hors d’oeuvres can typically be eaten in one to three bites and are served as appetizers before a meal. They are also very popular at cocktail parties and catering events since they can be picked up and eaten by hand.

If some hors d’oeuvres are served on platters and plates, a much better and more original way to display them is on toothpicks or skewers! It makes it so easy to pick them up and walk around without being scared to get your hands greasy and dirty that people love them. The great thing about skewers is that you have hundreds of possibilities! Shapes, colors, styles, sizes… Just name it and you can find it! You can figure out a way to match your dishes and your picks if you want to, or choose to go crazy and have very colorful tables!


On top of that, you also have the option to display your hors d’oeuvres with amazingly beautiful skewer and pick holders. Very unique and compatible with a large variety of picks, pick holders are a great way to make your life easier and serve your guests your delicious food. Depending on the type of skewers you decide to use, you can choose between many sizes and shapes of display but no matter which one you go for, you can be sure that it will look amazing and that your guest will love them.
