The Next Generation

It’s already time to start thinking about our next generation of characters, and we’re gonna go with… hors d’oeurves!

I love cocktail hour so much more than the actual dinner at weddings, so hors d’oeuvres hold a special place in my little bee heart. :)

We’ve come up with a list of 17, but we need your help narrowing them down!  Please consider the following criteria when nominating your 10 favorites: a lot of people will want to be that icon and it will look good as an illustration.  Feel free to make suggestions for hors d’oeurves you think we should include as well!

1. crudite


2. pig in a blanket


3. egg roll…


4. …or spring roll


5. satay


6. shrimp cocktail


7. bruschetta


8. sushi (which kind?)


9. oyster


10. crab cake


11. cheese


12. dumpling


13. meatball


14. quesadilla


15. spanakopita


16. deviled egg


17. quiche

    Me too Mrs Bee, I love the cocktail/app hour! I love it so much, it is the only reason I chose to do pre-photos before my wedding, so I could take part in it! :) Here are my favorites:

    1. Miss Crab Cake ( because they are my favorite!)

    2. Miss Dumpling

    3. Miss (insert cheese name here)

    4. Miss Quiche

    5. Miss Bruschetta

    6. Miss Spring Roll

    7. Miss Sushi

    ** What about Miss Tartlet or Miss Canape or Miss Crostini?

    You could also consider doing dipping sauces, some have fun names like: Miss Aioli, Miss Remoulade, Miss Honey-glaze, Miss Balsamic with little bottle icons..maybe? :)

    I love hors d’oeuvres!

    Top ten…hmm…with a couple suggestions
    1) Miss Dumpling (I mean really, how cute, and could be Southern-ized: Dumplin’)
    2) Miss Deviled Egg (can you tell my location yet?)
    3) Miss Spanakopita
    4) How about Miss Blini?
    5) Miss Hummus…or Miss Baba Ghanouj or Miss Falafel
    6) Miss Crab Cake
    7) Miss Wonton
    8) Miss Samosa (how can we leave off samosa? SO yummy and finger-food friendly)
    9) Miss Satay
    10) Miss fondue (little bit retro, very cute)

    Adorable idea – I love this! I especially love Ms. Deviled Egg (maybe the graphic can even be an egg portrayed as a female with a wedding veil and horns?)…I love Ms. Dumpling….Ms. Sushi – Maybe Ms. Spicy Tuna? I love Miss pig in a blanket! Miss Spring Roll – so classic. Miss Shrimp Cocktail is great. Miss Mozzarella stick? Ms. Spare Rib? Ms. Brie?

    how about some sort of wonton? pakora? escargot? veggie stick? chicken wing?

    and there’s always the option of mini-anything

    also love the comment-ideas for blini, falafel, fondue, mushroom cap & frommage! I think they should be contenders!

    This is a cute idea! I love all of them! My favorite is Miss Sushi (I’d go for California rolls since that’s where I’m from! :P)

    I also really like: spring roll, deviled egg, brie, and pork chop.

    in no particular order:
    spring roll
    california roll
    crab cake
    deviled egg

    cheese is a bit broad, perhaps brie?

    I wouldn’t do:
    crap cake or spanakopita

    I just don’t think they will translate well into a drawing.

    My only suggestions would be:
    buffalo wings
    mozzarella sticks
    potato skins

    Hi! I think the following 10 would be great future bee names: pigs in a blanket, eggroll, spring roll, shrimp cocktail, oyster, crabcake, cheese, dumpling, spanakopita, and quiche. It would also be great and really creative to have 10 choices of sushi related items (for all of the sushi lovers) as future bee names: salmon roll, spicy tuna, shrimp roll, uni, phily roll, cali roll, salmon roe, eggcake, wasabi, and ginger.

    Um, so I haven’t had anything to eat all day as I have to fast for some blood work this afternoon and I gotta say, I am now STARVING!!! Thanks! :)

    I like these… they all sound… delicious.
    I would also suggest:
    Miss Tater Skin
    Miss Buffalo Wing (My FI loves him some wings)
    Miss Bloomin’ Onion (All 5000 calories worth… mmmm)
    Miss Queso Dip
    Miss Salsa
    Miss Guacamole (not to be confused with Miss Avocado!)

    OMG I am going to eat my arm off now. :(

    This post makes me soooooo hungry.
    Need food. Now.

    I love crab cake, as I’m a New England bride.

    I’m trying to think what pictures would be cute. Sushi (Miss Rainbow Roll?!?). Mushroom Cap.

    I like these…

    egg roll, spring roll, shrimp cocktail, bruschetta, sushi, crab cake, cheese, quesadilla (my fav b/c i am hispanic), quiche, and meatball.

    What about wedding fabrics for names…like satin, lace…etc. But i am not sure how you could put pics of those

  16. Guest Icon Guest
    Katherine, Guest @ 4:07 pm

    My top ten would be (in no particular order):

    quiche, crab cake, crudite, dumpling, egg roll, satay, bruschetta, sushi (or what about sashimi? yummm!), cheese, spanakopita.

    My absolute favourite would have to be to have a Miss Dumpling, though. I love the way it sounds! But the icon for her might be a wee bit bland.
