    Default Bbq and party food ideas

    Hi all, I'm doing my kids birthdays (together) soon and i would like some ideas, I think I have some idea.
    The main food is a bbq and salad.
    Bbq meat will be all sorts of meat, chicken, lamb, pork, sausages, corn, onions, etc.

    Do you think I need a lot of finger food? Any sort?
    So far I'm thinking the following......
    Zucchini slice
    Mac and cheese
    Sausage rolls
    Dips and crackers
    A platter of cheeses/cucumber/carrots/cherry tomatoes and kabana
    Cheese pie & Spinach and cheese pie (I won't have time to make them myself) so store.
    I'll also make a cake and have a store bought one.
    Drinks
    Lollies & chips

    Anything else?

    Thank you

    Are you doing any kids party food or dessert? Like jelly cups or choc crackles , fruit kebabs type of thing?

    Is it mainly adults or kids? I usually do a food table and a party food table , the party food themed around the kind of party or theme , I love bite size or easy to eat with one hand kind of food so I always have a lot of those , I leave the food/keep filling it up so people can just eat all day kind of thing as I find the kids are too excited to usually sit still for longer than 5 minutes!

    Good idea. It's both adult and kids, hubby is making the bbq the main meal, so,I just wanted to have bits and pieces for the guests so they don't starve.

    Sausage rolls
    Meatballs
    Spicy Chicken wings
    Zucchini fritters
    Tandoori chicken wraps
    Mini beef fajitas
