Spinach dip on the little mini rye bread slices.

People had a thing for muffins in the 90's for some reason.
Jerry Seinfeld did a whole show on muffin tops.

Drinks, cosmopolitan, lemon drop.

Yes! Things like Zima bring back great memories.

Dig deep. We aren't celebrating that the person is dead.

I looked up best recipes from the 1990's and found a couple of links that might interest you. Most websites I saw only talked about the favorite children's snacks from that era, but there's no reason to eat that type of food. I love those pinwheel sandwiches and still sometimes make them to take to parties. People usually love them.

Anyway, here are two links:

https://www.bonappetit.com/columns/v...cle/menu-1990s

https://www.purewow.com/food/90s-dinner-party-menu

Please post back and let us know what you decided to take.
These are great!

So far we are cheating a bit and instead of White Zinfandel, we are doing Rose (yes, I know the WZ is 1980s), Cosmos and Zima.

Sun dried tomatoe, goat cheese, and balsamic bagel bites.

BBQ Chicken Pizza.

the two things that come to my mind: tortilla roll ups were the hot item in the 90s and feta cheese was just getting well known. Also I guess that was the era when buffalo wings really took off throughout the country. They were first popular in the mid 80s if I remember right but the 90s brought them to the entire country's attention.

I remember a lady who in the 90s would bring Suddenly Salad to every BBQ. It was a pasta salad mix that was new back then. Maybe switch the cherry tomatoes for sun dried to add more 90s flavor.
