I've organised a small birthday party for my 2 year old next week (very small - 7 adults, 3 kids). I am providing lunch for the kids and have asked adults to sort themselves out (no complaints there). I was also going to put some party rings and Oreos in a bowl for the little ones to pick at if wanted and that's it (obviously I have also got a birthday cake) so I think this will be fine.

I was considering putting out a couple of snacks for the adults but can't decide what. Nothing frozen or hot as party is away from home so no freezer or cooker available. Maybe something chilled? Any ideas?

    Sausage rolls, mini scotch eggs, cocktail sausages, quiches with coleslaw, potato salad, mixed leaf salad, . All are open the packet and require no or minimal prep (quiche will need cutting).

    I'd have a look at the 'picnic' section in the supermarkets, often you can get so many items for £x. Frozen can be cheaper than fresh, just allow enough time to defrost at home.

    Subway, Costco and many supermarkets do platters of sandwiches for parties.
  • Sausage rolls, crisps and dips, carot batons and hummus, if your feeling posh maybe a few smoked salmon blinis (or smoked salmon and cream cheese rolls!), olives, Quorn picnic eggs (I'm addicted!)

    If there's only 7 adults attending I wouldn't go too wild, just a few bits and bobs should be fine! :)
