    I bought platters from woolworths for dd2s christening. It was only a small gathering so I got a shaved meat platter and a BBQ chicken one, served it with a big green salad, fresh buns. So easy and everyone loved it!

    Fruit platters are always good.

    Word of advice, we recently had DDs first birthday and it seemed all the more "lunchy" type foods like sandwiches, kebabs, spring rolls, pasties, veg sticks/crackers/dip/cold meats, fruit platter and Cheerios etc got eaten whilst more snacky foods like chips and lilies were surprisingly the ones left behind

    I had ds1s party on the weekend.
    I did, mini pizzas (cut in half). Platter with cheese kabana cocktail onions and olives. Jatz and carrot sticks with a selection of dips. A fruit platter. Cherios with tom sauce. Anzac biscuits and shortbread. Two packets of chips. There was also mini quiches. Cupcakes. We cut the cake early so that got eaten too.

    Everything but the cheese ect platter was gone. The party was in the afternoon after lunch and there was 20kids and 15adults.

    Morning or afternoon tea times I offer homemade sausage rolls, muffins, cupcakes, crackers and cheese, chocolate crackle and honey joys.

    If it's closer to lunch time I usually add veg/yoghurt/hummus, mini quiches, cheese platter, mini pizzas, curry puffs, spinach and fetta pasties, mini chicken drumsticks, homemade fish sticks or chicken nuggets.

    Plus usual assortment of homemade biscuits, slices and cake.

    Salmon sausage rolls
    Greek salad sticks
    Mini lamb koftas ( or meat balls)
    Mini falafel balls with tzatiki
    Peking duck lettuce cups
    Prawn brioche buns
    Prawn avocado toasts
    Bruschetta ( tomato/basil)
    Mini red onion and feta quiches
    Dip sticks ( cucumber/carrot/bread sticks in mini plastic shot glasses with dip and the bottom)


    Sweet foods:

    Jelly cups ( usually in theme of party)
    Fairy bread ( cut into shapes of party theme)
    Honey joys

    All of the above can be made the night before and either cooked just before or that morning and just re heated before needed

    I love using puff pastry to make vege samosas. Make your filling by frying onion, garlic, ginger, some spices with finely diced carrot, potatoes and peas (freezer mixed veg a great cheat). Add some fresh coriander and a squeeze of lemon.
    With a sheet of puff pastry I use a small bowl to trace 4 circles, halve these to get 8 half-moon shapes, make into a cone pressing the edges to seal then spoon in filling. Seal the open edge.
    I pre-prepare these and pop in the fridge, then when ready to bake brush with egg wash and bake at 200 for 20 mins. Serve with mint yogurt. Kid tried and tested.
