I offered to throw an impromptu engagement party for my dear friend and his fiance next weekend and am now in a panic over how to serve 20+ people elegantly and - i'll be blunt - inexpensively. The party starts at 5:00 PM and I'm hosting at my apartment, so I want to come up with a spread of finger foods that are easy to put together and not budget-blowing. Any brilliant ideas? I was thinking butter dipped radishes, a berry plate with creme fraiche whipped cream, a platter of thick sliced heirloom tomatoes, but obviously I need to fill this out!
Thanks all for any advice.
