I wanted the appetizers to be fairy or woodland-themed, so here's what I came up with.
"Toadstool" bites - Mozzarella and colby cheese sticks, halved grape tomatoes and a little Baconnaise sauce underneath the caps, on a bed of onion sprouts:
Next, "Bunny" crackers - herbed cream cheese, and mini baby carrots on a whole wheat Ritz cracker:
Initially these "Ladybug" crackers were going to be the herbed cream cheese with grape tomato halves and a black olive half for the head, but I figured it was too many tomatoes for the little ones, plus, E looked at me like I was feeding her poison when she tasted the olive. So, these morphed into fruit ladybugs, strawberry and grape on strawberry cream cheese on a whole wheat Ritz (yes, some ladybugs stepped out of line):
Last, but not least, the hit of the party, fairy wand sugar cookies! I almost never ice cookies, so I'm really out of practice (okay, I'm terrible at it!) They look a mess, but they tasted good, and the kids didn't care! I sanded them with a fine glitter sugar. I did the second pan with just swirls:
