Crackers help to calm the fire!
If you don't have serving pieces or need to add to your tasting spoons and small plates, I would recommend Bed Bath and Beyond as well as World Market. Both stores have a nice selection of tasting spoons and small plates suitable for an appetizer party. You can also pick up bamboo skewers at World Market, which as you can see in these photos, I used quite considerably.

From these photos and descriptions I hope you too consider a cold appetizer supper during the hottest part of summer. After they finish these off and have a few glasses of your best Sangria, they'll be ready for a bit of a siesta. While they are resting, we can slip out and prepare dessert!
