Simple and stylish hors d’oeuvres. If you’re entertaining this summer and continuing into the holiday season, here are some fresh new ways to set the mood.

When it comes to hors d’oeuvres, it doesn’t get more elegant than a caviar, herb, and crème fraiche tart alongside a glass of champagne. For a fabulous champagne, I recommend the Premier Cru Brut Champagne from Vilmart. It’s pure, racy, and smooth. I also love the Brut Champagne from Arteis. It’s toasty, dry, and lovely.

For more food options, lobster and avocado toasts add a creamy bite to any soirée. Warm spiced olives, grilled oysters, bacon wrapped figs, and spinach puffs are also sure to be a hit with the guests.

For an end of summer celebratory dish, serve bright squash blossoms with pimento ricotta. Entertain the right way with stylish hors d’oeuvres.
