Happy spring, friends! I am so very excited to begin sharing spring inspired party ideas, entertaining tips and delish recipes with you, my online friends. I have a thing for spring parties and soft color palettes which inspires almost all things here on Melissa Creates. Grab the details for this spring inspired garland here and more spring inspired goodies here.
Some of my favorite recipes fall under the appetizer category and today I’m sharing not 1 but 3 appetizer pepperoni recipes! I’m not the only one who loves a simple pepperoni appetizer, right? Appetizers are the best. I can make an entire meal out of appetizers and totally skip the real dinner portion. Grab the spring inspired party display, pepperoni recipes and pinterest friendly recipe images to save for later below!
I like pretty food. These pepperoni kabobs fit under the pretty appetizer tag. To create these pepperoni kabobs you’ll need Hormel pepperoni, fresh mozzarella cheese and fresh french bread. Dice up your bread and cheese then apply all three ingredients to food safe sticks. Crazy simple and super cute!
Pepperoni and cheese crescent rolls- one of our favorite appetizers and weekend snacks! To create these delish snacks add 2-3 Hormel pepperoni pieces along with fresh mozzarella cheese into a rolled out crescent. Roll up the crescent and brush fresh garlic on top. You’ll want to make these for all of your gatherings I swear it. Grab the pinable image below so you don’t forget to bookmark these bad boys for upcoming spring soirees!
Salad in mason jars is a spring and summer party must! These limited edition blue mason jars are the best and are meant to be showcased during spring. My spring salads are super simple. Fresh romaine lettuce, fresh cheese, croutons and pepperoni’s complete my simple mason jar salad making it easy for extras to be refrigerated. Top it off with salad dressing of your choice, I prefer a basic oil blend.
Now that you’re appetizer ready let’s chat about spring inspired party decor! Pastels are all the rage this time of the year and any time of the year in my opinion. A few inexpensive items to have on hand for spring entertaining include:
- Floral fabric napkins
- Teal or bright colored cutlery and serving ware
- Seasonal decor that can be used multiple ways such as paper fans and the floral garland
- White cake stands; they look fabulous against cheerful colors
- Record player with your favorite records on hand (obviously this isn’t a mandatory item, but I strongly recommend owning one, wink)
