Easy Crostini With Basil  Pesto Appetizer

So when it comes to appetizers and find finger foods I like recipes that can be prepared in advance. When you have guests coming over you should be a host that is socializing instead of you being in the kitchen.

When you make these beautiful appetizers you have to consider two things. Are you going to assemble the appetizer or are you going to serve them as a do it yourself appetizer?

I like to serve these appetizers an assemble it yourself. If you are in doubt if your guests know how to make this appetizer just make one as a showcase so that your guests have no doubt on how to assemble crostini appetizer.

Be the perfect host. Whether you are having friends over or are hosting a bigger event a lot of things can make or break your evening.

I have written an article on how to be the perfect host. So if you want your next event to become a memorable one go-ahead and learn a thing or two on how to become the perfect host.
