Housewarming Party Appetizer Menu

Howdy! :)  It's been awhile since I've been able to squeeze in time for a blog post because we've been moving, but we're finally getting settled.  Last weekend I finally got my craft room unpacked and even sewed some dog collar bandannas for our new puppy that will be coming home soon!

This weekend we threw a small housewarming party and I wanted to stop by to share this great recipe I found on Pinterest for Italian Cucumber Appetizers from High Heels & Grills.

Italian Cucumber and Cream Cheese Crostini Appetizers

 What I loved most about these appetizers was that they were so simple to put together, but they look super fancy (almost like a little crostini).  They're also very inexpensive for the number of appetizers they make.  I'll definitely be bringing them to pot lucks in the future.

Italian Cucumber and Cream Cheese Crostinis

To save time, I mixed the cream cheese and Italian dressing a few hours before the party and put it in the fridge, so all I had to do was toast the baguette slices and assemble the three ingredients (baguette, cream cheese, and cucumber slices) about a half hour before the party.

Add a few bottles of wine, some hummus and veggies, and a cheese and fruit board and you have yourself a plentiful and fresh summer hors d'oeuvres menu that doesn't require any cooking or heat from the oven.  (Oh, and in case you thought I was too healthy, we also had BBQ meatballs in the crockpot and a dozen cupcakes to eat.  Mwahaha!)

Pita crackers, broccoli, carrot sticks, and roasted red pepper hummus

Gouda, cheddar, and baguette slices with Granny Smith Apples and red grapes

Brie and Granny Smith Apple Slices
Hope you had a fantastic weekend.  Hopefully I'll be posting some sewing projects again soon!

Happy Crafting!


  1. I appreciate the good work you are doing! I’ve really enjoyed reading it. You’ve arouse me a great interest. I’ll investigate it more. Keep up doing it!

  2. They definitely deserve applause for the nice selection of bread and the service which was good from start to finish. The mass produced filet was too good.


Your comments brighten my day, so comment away! (Hey, that rhymes!) As always, thanks for reading. :)
