Birthday Party Thoughts?

So, A's 3rd bday is coming up and we are having a small party in our backyard. There will be about 25 people there(adults and kids). This is what I plan on serving. Will it be enough? Is there something I should add or remove?

BBQ Pork sliders

Crockpot mac n cheese

fruit and veggie trays with dip

chips

 

For dessert, I am making 2 jello cakes. One pineapple and one strawberry.

For drinks, I am going to have beer, a few soda, a pineapple punch and cherry limeaides.

    my read shelf:
  • Sounds good, but maybe add a drink like iced tea that isn't sweet.

  • Sounds yummy! I might add a dessert that isn't jello in case some people don't like jello, like cookies or a sheet cake.

  • Jello cake is actually cake, it just has jello in it and it makes it really moist. It's really good! Thanks for the ideas.

  • In that case it sounds perfect! (And now I'm off to google jello cake!)

  • I think that is perfect.  I always try to do more and end up with a ton of leftovers so I think what you are offering is perfect.

  • I agree a pitcher of water or iced tea for a non sweet drink and it sounds perfect. Now I need to find this amazing cake you speak of...

    I made one with pineapple jello and mixed crushed pineapple in the cool whip. Very tasty!

  • Wow - that pineapple cake looks amazing! I think your menu is great for that many people. One thing - I went to a Luau yesterday and with the heat, people went through 3x as much water as anything else.

  • I am dropping one of the punch drinks for unsweet iced tea and will have a huge thing of water.

    I appreciate all the ideas!
