Asian-Style "Mini" Cocktail Party

A couple weeks ago, my mom came across some small appetizer plates at her house which sparked the idea of having an Asian-Style cocktail party.  She makes the most amazing little egg rolls so we thought...why stop there...let's do everything mini!  Each guest grabbed a bamboo tray and filled it up with little plates of bbq chicken wings, Shanghai egg rolls, vegetable noodles, homemade steamed dumplings (which she learned how to make when we lived in Hawaii), Hawaiian chicken skewers and shredded pork dumplings.  It gave everyone a chance to try a little bit of everything and still have a "little" room for dessert!

I made the bite size key lime pies and cupcakes, but used store bought 2 bite brownies, added chocolate sauce whipped cream and a raspberry for the sundaes.  Strawberry Shortcakes were store bought butter pound cake, fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream.  

We did veggies and dip in glass votives we found at Pier One.
You can find the serving spoons there too.

My sweet Mom and Riley.
I am hungry again....
