8 Festive (and Inexpensive) Hors D’Oeuvres for the Holiday Season

holiday hors doeuvresThe holidays call for parties.

Parties, naturally, call for food.

And the best shindigs are finger food parties. Offering a couple platefuls of tasty appetizers will guarantee that your guests get fed—and that you don’t blow your holiday budget.

Best of all, most of the mix-and-match finger food elements on this list can be made in advance, freeing up time to don your favorite reindeer sweater or tackle a last-minute emergency houseclean. If you're feeling ambitious, any of these great hors d’oeuvres could also be the starter dish for a full-on holiday dinner party.
