    Wink Help with DP birthday party :D

    Can anyne help me wiith ideas for my DP party at the begining of November PLEASE

    I just got a fire pit that Im doing up (from road side collection lol) so I will be using that as warmth outside.
    I was *thinking* of just ordering pizza for everyone but thats so.... boring lol if anyone has any ideas for food that would be great. Its a dinner thing.
    For dessert, Im going to do a sundae type thing. Three flavours of icecream, with choices of toppings, coke for spiders, that type of thing.

    Im going to put up fairy lights, plus the 'outside outside' light for kids to play.

    Other than that though, Im lost! It isnt a milestone birthday but its the first party I will have thrown for him so I want it special but not too OTT.

    THANK YOU

    What's the age demographic? When does it start and end?

    Pizza sounds fine, otherwise a sausage sizzle with onions (if you have a BBQ) or hot beef rolls.

    I'd just have lots of drinks, lots of nibbles etc...and hot ones if it's going to be cold. So sausage rolls, mini quiches, cob loaf. Plus dip and crackers, antipasto platters, again it depends on how many and who you're catering for. You can order or make sushi rolls.

    Depending on numbers, dessert sounds a bit complicated for me - I'd just do birthday cake and/or ice cream.

    I think it's nicer if you make the dinner and not order it - it does not need to be fancy - I've done heaps of easy summer BBQ,s like doing a taco table ( put all taco ingredients out and they make their own tacos) or a kebab one or even hamburgers? Pizza is easy to make at home , try cooking it in the BBQ as you fit more in and it heats quicker!

    He will be 27. But children are going to be there too. I like the idea of a taco stand thats pretty awesome...Will need alot thats the only thing as the people coming are big eater and I know just me alone can eat 4... so they will be able to eat ALOT more
    The dessert will be the easy part. No BBQ though, otherwise that would be good.

    Any other ideas please?

    How many people?
    Could you order a butt of beef from somewhere? At my 21st we had a butt of beef and a side of pork and buns and gravy with salads (potato, and coleslaw)

    Depending on numbers, it would probably be more economical.

    for our housewarming, we had a lamb spit, and stuff to make yiros (or kebabs if that's what you call them) Had a couple of store bought chickens for those who like me don't eat lamb. was really easy

    For New Years once we had 3 different roasts and did them all up and had buns and gravy and sides (same as PP said). It was easy, delicious and filling. Also, if you cant be bothered cooking it yourself or dont have the room, the butcher at the Canning Vale market will sell cooked roasts...DPs sister ordered some for her birthday earlier this year and they were really good!
