Easy Hors d'oeuvres

My friends Cheryl and Dave helped me cater Jack's 90th birthday celebration. We all worked hard and the event turned out great. Everything we served was finger food, plated and arranged in the dining room.
Here's a pic of the spread:
Cheryl was so smart and brought #10 cans and blocks to raise some of the platters. She draped a tablecloth over them and this allowed us to get so much more food on the table at once and it looked gorgeous.

One of the guests' favorite hors d'oeuvres was smoked salmon with cream cheese and dill on brioche toasts. This was also one of the easiest to prepare so I thought I'd share how to make them. It's actually almost embarrassing how easy these are.

The pretty and tasty salmon treats.
All we did was arrange mini brioche toasts that we purchased at Trader Joe's on platters, pipe on a dollop of cream cheese, add smoked salmon and top with a sprig of dill. They looked so pretty and the guests loved them.

The brioche toasts that we found at Trader Joe's. They were packaged tightly and not a single one was broken.
