Mini toad in the hole or mini yorkshire puds with roast beef and horseradish sauce goes down well.

Blinis are nice - tiny scotch pancakes with toppings, usually salmon.

Here's a recipe for it - it shows making the pancakes from scratch but you can get mini pancakes from the supermarket for a quick and easy solution.
Have fun at the party x

boiled kidney beans with some tasty sauce, coleslaw salad, sauted corns.

Caramlised onion and walnut filo parcels.

Easy just cook onion with bit of sugar and walnuts, feta, red wine. pop into filo parcels and pinch at top. Pop in the oven until slightly brown

you can add any filling you want brie and cranberry is nice

mini bruscetta is really easy and fairly cheap. Slice a baguette really thinly and put on and oven tray, drizzle with olive oil and lightly toast in the oven. (keep an eye on it cos they can burn easily)
top with a variety of things and lightly grill....
Tomato, goats cheese and basil
Salsa and grated cheese
pesto, feta and olive
salsa, prawns and creme fraiche

youc an use your imagination depending on budget.

how about mini phylo dough cups filled with crabmeat salad

1 lb. imitation crabmeat
1 med. onion, diced small
1 tbsp. celery seed
1 tbsp. Old Bay (add more if necessary)
1/4 c. mayonnaise

Mix well and chill.

quail eggs, boil them cut them in half scoop the yoke out and mix with with a small amount of chili flakes or powder a little mayo.pipe them back into the egg whites. and put a little of slice of spring onion into it on one side , i use the green top of the onion , and slice it in half. if you dont wants to use chili use fresh herbs like thyme and chives you could use cream cheese with chives to mix with the egg yoke and leave out the mayo .

but with canape its all about colour, and presentation. you could put them on a sliver tray in the cup cake cases the very small ones. then they are easy for people to pick up , good luck and have a great party.

ps Quail eggs are classic and classy

this one is extremely simple to put together and is so delicious!

buy fresh bread, i prefer to use potato bread for this. spread a thin layer of mayonnaise one either side. toast in an oven at 350 degrees browning each side but being careful not to burn.

cut the bread into whatever shapes you like using a cookie cutter.

place a thin slice or shaving of smoked grueyer cheese on each piece of bread. top with cracked pepper and a sliced strawberry.

its DELICIOUS and simple.

if you want to add a twist to this, add a dollop of fig jam onto the cheese before adding the pepper and strawberry.

How about Smoked Salmon Canapes with Mascarpone Cheese. It's really yummy. (The sweetnes of mascarpone cheese makes these canapes special. A lightly smoked salmon works best in this mild combination.)

Smoked Salmon Canapes With Mascarpone

1/3 c unsalted butter, softened
1/3 c snipped chives
1/2 lb thinly sliced smoked salmon
1 c mascarpone cheese
3 tb chopped dill
36 (1 inch) rounds whole-wheat
1 or pumpernickel bread
1 dill sprigs

Combine butter and chives. Roll bite-size pieces of smoked salmon into
1-inch-high cone shapes. Stir mascarpone cheese with chopped dill
until fluffy. Fit pastry bag with fine tube. Fill pastry bag with
dill cheese.. To assemble, spread chive butter on bread rounds. Place
rolled salmon cones upright on bread rounds. Pipe dill cheese into
center of each cone. Garnish with small dill sprigs. Can be made few
hours in advance and refrigerated. Before serving, let stand briefly
to remove chill.

go for mini cheesecakes. Mix biscuit with butter and put hem in little shot glasses and chill. Mix mascapone cheese, sugar and orange zest together until a good thick consistancy and place over the biscuits in the shot glasses. Chill overnight ideally and for presentation, grate some chocolate over the top of each one. Looks gret and tastes even better. (Change the orange for another flavour e.g. vanilaessence if you like)

tuna ,mayo ,egg mix then fill up some vol vols pastry
