    Default Food for 2nd Birthday party

    It's DS's 2nd Birthday next Saturday and I'm holding a party at my in laws place because we don't have the room. There will only be 6-7 kids and 25 adults. What kind of foods could
    I offer? I was thinking of making little sandwiches for the kids (fairy bread, vegemite etc) fruit, yogurt etc. Anything else I could make for the kids?
    What should I make for the adults? I'm tempted to just get some pizza.

    Party pies, cocktail frankfurts.. I know it's not the healthiest food for kids but it's winter so I think some hot food is needed.

    Lol I was about to ask a very similar question!
    DD's 3rd party is in 3 weeks. We are doing lunch and there will be about 40 people, 12 are kids. Since we only have limited oven space (community hall) I'm doing bigger things like a lasagna, fried rice, potato bake and chicken wings. Was thinking of doing some nuggets and frankfurts for the kids who don't eat mushy food (like mine lol) I'm not going overboard with lunch coz its a rainbow themed party so there will be lots of sweets!

    We also bought about 6 BBQ chickens and heaps of fresh rolls, they went down a treat!

    I did mini food for DS 2nd birthday party - great size for kids and fun finger food for adults!

    Mini hamburgers
    Mini pizzas
    Mini tacos
    Mini chicken drumsticks
    Mini sausage rolls
    Mini chicken pies
    Mini meat balls

    Plus I did mini fairy bread scrolls - once you make the fairy bread roll it up and cut little discs ( like pinwheel fairy bread bites)

    Meatballs with dipping sauce (I like doing spicy lamb with minted yoghurt sauce)
    Pastizzi's (sp?) easy cos you buy thm already made/frozen from supermarket, great finger food
    Mini chicken drummets (honey soy marinade!) just buy a couple of kilo's, baste with the marinade and chuck in the oven, delish)
    Good 'ol party pies, sausage rolls etc
    mini quiche
    little cocktail hotdogs

    Maybe do a couple of bakes as well? For easy ones, do a pasta bake or scallop potato bake?

    PM me if you need any recipes, I'm currently trying to figure out what I'm doing foodwise for DD's 1st bday next month...
