When to do the food?

Is there any rule on when exactly you are supposed to do the food? Was thinking little activity, then food, then onto the games so it would be near the start of the party. Is that OK?

What time are you having the party?

Personally I generally do the food quite close to the end so that a) hopefully they've tired themselves out and sit still b) worked up a bit of an appetite and c) so that they don't make themselves sick running about after they've eaten. I would start with some energetic games, then food, then a quiet game like pass the parcel then home.

If you are doing party from say 4-6 then I would do food at 4.45, for half hour, then you only have 45 mins left to fill at end.

Does depend on age of guests though?

The age varies for 3 to 5 plus a 7yo and possibly a 2yo as well. It's just that some of the games involve chocolate prixes so don't want to do those before the food. That's the reason for doing it close to the start.
