So far my list is fairly uninteresting.


What can i do that the parents will enjoy too.

Must be cold.

Hit me with your fantastic never thought of before ideas!

We tend to just have cold pizza and a few extra fairy cakes for parents.

WRAPS - spread with butter or cream cheese or tomatoey sauce. Insert slice of cold meat + lettuce or pickle or coleslaw. Roll up and arrange (tastefully!) on plate - et voila!

In my experience (have done loads of childrens parties in my 23 years of nannying) parents love party food! I just do enough food for the children, who then don't eat it as they are too excited and the parents finish it all up! And tea and coffee and a couple of bottles of wine.
