It's a buffet for adults and children.

I am thinking

Cheese, tuna and (nice)ham sandwhiches
Marinated Chicken drums
Fairy cakes
cocktail sausages

What else?

as its for adults too, do some salad bowls

grapes always go down very well IME


Vegetarian quiche/pizza

<sniggers> at memory of dds 2nd birthday. olives were her utmost favourite food so I put some out on the table. One Mum snatched the bowl away from her dd with a 'don't let her have those she might think they are grapes'!

pizza goes down well
and those pink biscuits.

I did Large bowl of pasta, with a bolognaise sauce, cheese, chopped up sausages, tomato sauce and let them help themselves.
Caters for all and works out quite cheap.

I have found that buffets are useless with kids as they pile up their plates and hardly eat a thing

obviously the food wasn't mixed in one bowlgrin but each could choose their own topping

ice cream and jelly

variety of fresh fruit and raisins - should be OK even for fussy eaters

I thought fairy cakes was enough for the sweet stuff but maybe I should add more

from all the parties dd's been to i'd say pizza and garlic bread go down best. better than sandwiches. also those awful little cocktail sausages. they always get scoffed. then jelly and ice cream with choice of sprinkles/sauce.

Garlic breads
CHocolate fingers
Mini doughnuts
Carrot sticks that have bit boiled for 3 mins
little potatos
bread sticks
baby tomatos

Definietly ice cream ith chice of sprinkles...

I buy top quality sausages, cook and chop up into bite size.

Depending on age of children I think its good to cut the triangles again so you get mini triangles (if you get me) and saves waste.

Dont over cater, I find they only pick.

I always hold back the sweet stuff until the savoury has been served.

My son loves olives and feta cheese - but not sure if many children do. Top tip - use the canned ones in brine. soak in water, drain and sprinkle with olive oil - saves a fortune on the fresh.

dips and things to dip in them
biscuits in the shape of a 2
birthday cake
