Doing ds3's christening at home in 2 weeks time and just trying to think what to do for food.

Got 12 adults and 3 kids to cater for but all are family/v. close friends and I want to do something simple that means I can chill out and relax with them rather than faff about in the kitchen which is what usually happens and I end up exhausted having not really enjoyed it.

So far I've thought of doing:

Baked potatoes (can put in the oven in the morning so they are done on our return from church)
Cold chicken drumsticks (cos can do earlier)
Salad with cherry tomatoes (dead easy)

What else can I do that could perhaps be done in advance or done very easily and quickly at the time?

usual sausage rolls, cocktail sausages, how abut making a chilli the night before and then reheating that and serving it either with jacket spuds or big bowl of rice

sm - thought about chilli but do you think that's OK for a Sunday afternoon? Bonus would be I'd get my brother to make it and bring it with him!

I think it would be fine. mmm i could do with that now. people can help themselves then and if you do nibbley bits too they can decide whether just to snack or enjoy a proper meal

oh and yeah get yr bro to make it, one thing less for you to worry about then
