It's our first childrens birthday party and we're at a bit of a loss having never done one before and I would welcome ideas of what we could serve on the buffet. I've ordered a cake for dessert so just looking for savoury ideas. The age range is 6 months to 80 years, no allergies that I know of.

Is it a cold finger buffet? Any ability to heat bits up? How many aware you catering for? I think I would keep it quite simple, nice selection of finger sandwiches maybe egg mayo, creamed cheese and cucumber, coronation chicken, ham and tomato.
Sausage rolls, cocktail sausage, veggies and breadsticks with dips, mini quiches, homemade cheese straws, crisps (with some good suckable crisps for the little ones!)
If you have the option to heat things mini pizzas or larger pizzas cut into thin fingers always seem to go down well as do home made chicken nuggets and garlic bread!

Carrot, cucumber and pepper sticks and hummous works well for little ones. And mine loved cheese straws and savoury muffins. I made fruit kebabs once or twice for post toddler age kids, thread fruit on a skewer and for a party put a sweet in the middle. Were always popular. Can simply dismantle for younger ones.
