I'm planning on having a girls night themed as a martini party.  I hope to get all snazied up and then go out somewhere to eat... go to the movies or something and then come back to my house for fake martinis (underage you see... ahh yes we're good girls see!! okay not usually.) but I don't know what else to serve besides fake martinis.  Especially if we don't go out... because I'm vegan!  Most of my friends aren't so some non-vegan stuff is okay too, but what about moi?  Thanks for the help and ideas!

Stuffed mushrooms
Spinach pastry appetizers
Pasta salad
Cheese & crackers (non-vegan, I know, but it's always a good idea to have them out)
Crudite with a few different dips
(my favorite) Cinnamon chips with fruit salsa!!
A mix of different olives (although you might not want to if you're having martinis - that might be olive overload!)

In other words, think appetizers and then let people load up with them.  I've found that guests feel less awkward about vegan "picking" food than they do when you try to serve them an actual vegan meal.  If someone's just chowing on party food, they don't generally miss the meat.

Haha gladly!

I think there's a good fruit salsa recipe here, and as for stuffed mushrooms there are about a million recipes online.  If you go with spinach (or other veggie) pastries, I'd try to find some boxed up - might be hard if you're among the "hard-core" vegans ("Was this sugar processed with bone char?"), but in my experience they're just too difficult and time-consuming to make.

Also, chocolate-dipped strawberries.  I mean, you can't go wrong with those, I think.

I like Tofurky Italian sausage cut then wrapped in pizza dough. Serve 'em with ketchup and mustard. Hummus and pitta are also a hit.

It is pretty good. The pizza dough rolls are awesome. You could also make 'pigs in a blanket' with Pilsbury crescent roll dough (vegan) and tofu hot dogs.

I would like to hear more about this faux-tinis you are planning to make!  What do you have in mind?

okay well you can't actually make virgin martinis i don't think but they sound better for this party than mocktails and I have no clue as of yet.  I've decided to go bowling so everyone can figure out their own dinner or we'll eat sooo I just need dessert and breakfast now!  I'm really craving cinnamon buns so I was thinking those for breakfast, and I have TONS AND TONS of chocolate so I want to make chocolate dipped cherries and strawberries.  Once I decide on the drinks I'll let you all know... well I'll let you all know my final menu decisions.  And how everyone likes them.  I might do some of the pastry appy thingies if people get here early to get ready though.  Or next month.  But yes!  I promise to tell you all how the menu goes... just because I know you all want to know.
