Party Food Your Guests Will Love

Nostalgic Party Food Your Guests Will Love

If you’re constantly searching for ways to set your next event apart, then you can’t go wrong when it comes to changing up the food. Rather than serving yet another finger buffet, treat your guests to something different. A taste of the past (with a modern twist) is sure to bring a smile to people’s faces!


Vol-au-vents. Who doesn’t love a morsel of puff pastry with a tasty filling? Try trout, horseradish and asparagus, cherry tomato, black olive and cream cheese, or that classic, chicken and mushroom.

Popcorn chicken. Serve this with a tangy homemade tomato ketchup.

Cheese straws. It’s especially good if you’re serving a heavier main course. Plus, they’re incredibly quick, easy, and inexpensive. Win!

Main Courses

Fish finger sandwich. Panko crumbed fish fingers with delicious chunks of flaky white fish and freshly made bread. Delicious!

Puy lentil lasagne. Until fairly recently, vegetarian options were extremely limited. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way today with this delicious meat-free option. It caters to all tastes and fits in with your culinary theme.

Beef bourguignon. Get your guests to serve themselves from the steaming pots of this French classic; it’s a great way to get everyone talking.


Eton Mess. Offer the classic option (strawberries, cream, and crushed meringue) alongside variations. Event attendees will love to try the different options on offer.

Knickerbocker Glory. Bring back memories of childhood trips to the beach with this dessert. Pile glasses high with ice cream, fresh fruit, cream, jelly, and cream. You can go traditional with your choice of fruit, or you can opt for a tropic theme (pineapple, mango, passion fruit).

Profiteroles. Go wild with this one—the more varieties, the better! Don’t forget to consider the filling too.


Milkshakes. Served with a curly straw, of course!

Negroni. The comeback cocktail du jour.

Hot chocolate. Alongside the ubiquitous teas and coffees at the end of the meal, offer mini cups of hot chocolate, topped with cream and marshmallows. Irresistible!
