Thats exactly what I'd do. Veggie chilli's cheap to make and very tasty as well. A load of bread on the side for mopping up and sounds like a good night to me!

iceland do lots of party food. and if you go to icelands website, they have a party planner. it shows you which food you can buy to cover how many people are coming to the party.

Lasagne, pie and peas, chilli, stew, hot beef sandwiches, hot dogs, burgers etc Homemade soup served in mugs is good if going outside for bonfire/fireworks - keeps the hands warm.

Angela those cupcakes look fab! I am definitely trying those this year!
Another vote for chili, I did a big pot of soup and loads of hot dogs last year.
