On Saturday We are hopefully having a picnic in our local park for my dds 3rd birthday. I don't really want to do sanwiches as with any luck it might be hot - any nice ideas that arn't too sticky/chocolaty?????????????????

Party is for about 10 friends + adults.

we did sandwhiches but cut them with biscuit cutters (annabel Karmel) - and everyone commented on them. crisps, fruits (watermelon slices, grapes, strawberries), biscuits, and drinks for the grown-ups. Ohh ice- cream!

Love the idea of having ice-cream, any ideas how long it would keep in a freezer bag?

Distel Sun 08-May-05 20:13:41

Keep the ideas coming, I am making a list

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 20:16:32

cheese sticks
bread sticks

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 20:18:46

little fairy cakes not choccy coverd cakes
jammie dodgers
party rings (cant have a party without party rings although couldnt eat them to much food oulouring)

dont forget to ask everyone to bring a teddy for a teddy bears picnic

Distel Sun 08-May-05 20:31:21

Ohhhhh, thats a FAB idea

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 20:36:51

resealable plastic bags from tesco (the freezer/sandwiche ones) take up far less room that plastic containers and are fine for fruit and veg sticks.

We were thinking of doing pizza as it is one of those things that is quite nice cold.

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 20:40:45

good idea but sometimes slices get stuck together, stick a bit of greaseproof paper between em to stop sticking, before you put them in containers.

Distel Sun 08-May-05 20:42:48

you sound like you have experience of this

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 20:44:56

yep lolol

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 20:47:34

you could do sandwiches but like soldiers (little sandwich fingers) with one slice brown and one white
sorry Im getting carried away I love doing kids party food lol

Distel Sun 08-May-05 20:49:01

We were worried about sandwhiches drying up a bit if it was hot (fingers crossed)

beansmum Sun 08-May-05 20:49:20

tortilla? the spanish(?) omlettey kind not the mexican kind. quite easy to make and yummy cold.

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 20:49:33

true

Distel Sun 08-May-05 21:03:24

That souns nice, Do you make it like Omlette but with peppers and sausage in it?

sallystrawberry Sun 08-May-05 21:04:40

Distel Sun 08-May-05 21:05:49

Thats a nice idea - make it in the holidays when she wont see her friends for a while.
