I'm not sure how to do it stress free, as it was pretty stressful doing it all myself, but it was a lovely spread and a really good day.
We had lots of 'posh' breads, cold beef and cold ham - found a good butcher who sliced it all for me and did me a good deal - some good local cheeses, greek salad, feta salad, pasta salad, potato salad and coleslaw, some nice chutneys and savory marmalades, and then the usual mini sausgaes, sausage rolls, little pizzas for the children.
Swett wise, i made fancy cupcakes with lots of icing, angel cakes and mini merainge nests with fresh fruit and cream.
Thanks for responses - unfortunately don't have a Waitrose near by but we do have M & S and i'm sure they have some good bits as well so I'll probably take a look at what they do and Sainsburys as well. xxx
