Classy Finger Foods To Serve at Your Next Gathering

The food we serve can set the tone for the gatherings we host. Offering delicious food impresses guests and makes your event more memorable, whether you’re planning an elegant cocktail hour, a festive birthday celebration, or a casual get-together. Get menu inspiration from the below list of classy finger foods to serve at your next gathering I put together for y’all!


Crostini, slices of toasted baguette topped with various ingredients, are a versatile and elegant choice for any party. Their beauty lies in their simplicity and the endless possibilities for toppings. 

I like to start with a high-quality baguette, slice it thinly, brush each piece with olive oil, and toast until golden brown. Y’all, the world is your oyster from there. Top your crostini with classics like tomato and basil, ricotta, and honey, or get creative with combinations like pear slices, blue cheese crumbles, chopped walnuts, or smoked salmon with cream cheese and dill. 

Charcuterie Board

A charcuterie board is the epitome of sophistication and ease regarding party food. Not only does it offer a stunning visual centerpiece, but it also caters to a range of tastes. Start by selecting a variety of cured meats such as prosciutto, salami, and chorizo. I recommend pairing them with different cheeses—a mix of hard, soft, aged, and blue. Add other foods such as olives, chocolates, fruits, and crackers to complete the board.

I found that the key to a successful charcuterie board is to balance flavors, textures, and colors. Evaluate the best cheese and chocolate pairings for a blend of sweet and savory. The same goes for choosing meats and accompaniments, as all the foods should complement and balance each other.

Mini Quiches

Mini quiches are the perfect classy finger food to serve at your next gathering because they look fancy, are easy to make, and taste delightful. To make classic quiches, mix eggs with cream, grated cheese, diced ham, and vegetables like spinach or mushrooms. Pour the mixture into mini pie crusts and bake until set.

Y’all can also serve a variety of flavors by adding different fillings. Some add-ins I recommend include bacon, caramelized onions, goat cheese, or chicken and pesto. The possibilities are endless, so feel free to experiment and create unique mini quiche flavors!


Skewers are another versatile and crowd-pleasing finger food perfect for any gathering. I like to start with a few basic ingredients, like a protein, a vegetable, or a fruit. I marinate the meats before threading them onto skewers and grilling or broiling them to perfection. For a vegetarian option, you can also mix different veggies like bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini. For an added touch of elegance, I like to serve the skewers on a bed of fresh herbs or drizzle with a balsamic glaze.

The key to great party food is how the food tastes and how y’all present it. So, take the time to arrange your dishes beautifully and watch as they become the talk of the gathering!
