    OH mini food this the best. I love mini tacos as canapés! I had them once at a friends reception and they were the bomb. I really hope you get the chance to taste the wonderful food; I second getting a friend to hoard some of them for you. Trust me, I have lived through two weddings as a brides maid and even the wedding party doesn’t get to eat or sit for a second.

      MINI TACOS!! Omg. That sounds incredible. And now that you say that, I’m totally gonna get someone to hoard apps for me.. haha! 🙂

    So exciting. These look lovely. I can’t believe you made izzys dough. Even withthe gifs it looks daunting, but youve inspired me! I know you jest about getting someone to steal the apps for you at your wedding…do it! I did it and was so happy to be stuffing my face between photo shoots. Tbe apps are the best part. You’ll also be hungry! Have your bridesmaids stockpile for you. It’s their job!! I bet these will taste even better than at your wedding. Though I’m sure those will be amazing too. Xo

      OMG you are my HERO!! I’m totally going to emulate you. I’m already excited. And yes, oh my gosh, Izy’s croissants were amazing — totally doable, I promise! My newbie croissant puffs didn’t have as crisp or as many layers (which was totally me and not the recipe) but they tasted absolutely incredible. She’s a goddess.

    These look SO delicious! I recently made all the canapes for my book launch party and think I have caught the canape bug! 🙂 xxx

    Croissant dough?! I’m sure your guests will be thrilled. I’d like to devour a plate-full of these for breakfast.

    At our wedding, the coordinator pulled us away for the five minutes directly following the ceremony, to spent a of couple (air conditioned) minutes alone. She brought us a plate with two of each of the hors d’oeuvres, plus glasses of chilly water and champagne. If you can swing it, I highly recommend this.

    Ahhh I’ve been wanting to master croissant dough but I’ve been telling myself I need to take a week off of work to do it. (Wishful thinking!) What lovely pupus you have chosen (hehe!) can’t WAIT to see that cake, though!

    These look wonderful! I could probably tuck into the entire plateful!
    My wedding is over a year away, but I’m already worrying about missing the canapés for photos. These things are very important aren’t they! We’ve decided to have extra canapés instead of a starter too – additional food related pressure! Maybe we’ll just snap off a couple of quick shots and dash back. Memories of the food are surely just as important as pictures of me in a dress?! Or get someone to stash someone in a napkin like you say, I’m not above that kind of food hoarding at all!

    As always, I love your photos too 🙂

    Without doubt, choosing canapes was my fave part of wedding planning. We had an entire evening with our caterers where they fed us wine and lots and lots of little nibbles. It was so hard to narrow down our choices (and now I’m having total canape envy of yours!).

    This post is SO lovely, Cynthia! That croissant dough looks delicious, and I can’t get over how yummy these tartlets seem. <3

    I am obsessed with these – mini eats are the best cuz then I can eat like 12 of them. I’ve always seen balsamic glazes in bottles at the store, but cool that i can just make it on my own!

    You totally earned the right to hoarded plates at your own wedding, girl. Genius idea to go through and make your own appetizers. I, too, am the plate-juggling sauce person in the corner. Cheers, love this series and all the stories!

    CYNTHIA! Hi. So fun hearing about your adventures via Alana this week. These are absolutely gorgeous, and I’m kinda maybe hoping we can recreate your wedding pupus someday for an IRL blogger meetup? It’ll be like we’re all getting married, but better! I’d also like to request that B2’s dad write a guest post on my blog kthxbyeeeeee.

    those are just cute! caramelized onion should be at any celebration and any meal really, i cant imagine it ever becoming boring. cocktail finger food is my favorite as well, i love nibbling on small amounts and trying everything in sight, i’m usually too curious to commit on one large plate! 😉 all the best and i hope there is not too much stress! 😉

    Thank you for bringing boursin back into my life! I had temporarily forgotten about its deliciousness (how could I?) until now! I can imagine it must go s beautifully well with the caramelized onions with the the salty playing against the sweet. I look forward tot trying these!

say hello!
