Hi,

I'm having a big 1st birthday party for all the family instead of having a christening. I want cold buffet foods for both adults & kids of all ages. I'm doing the party twice, one up north and one down south within a week.

So far these are my ideas:- Beatrix potter theme

Rabbit shaped sandwiches - wholemeal & white - tuna, ham & egg mayo.
Mini rolls - wholemeal & white - smoked salmon & cream cheese, chicken salad & ham salad.
Home made root vegetable crisps (Annabel Karmel recipe).
Crisps.
Mini quiches (AK).
Mini pots of humous with breadsticks, pitta and veg sticks.
Mini pizzas.
Baby bells decorated as lady bugs.

Mini carrot cakes.
Main birthday cake.
Lindt chocolate carrots.
Multiple colour jelly pots.
Fruit on fairy wands and plastic swords & some in pots with creme fraiche.
Marshmallows labelled as bunny tails.

I think I need more cold food ideas? Any cute ideas? Thanks :-)
