Hi! My girls' Halloween Themed Birthday Party is next weekend and am still waiting for several families to RSVP - I gave them until this Sat.
So right now... my guest count is aprox. 30 guests -which inc. 20 adults and 10 kids.
It could go up to aprox. 45...
Party is from 2pm to whenever and people usually eat. I have a face painter/ crafts lady coming and I will be doing most of the food myself in advance and twisting balloons. Friend is also lending us a small bounce house.
Here is what I have planned so far:
Drinks: Beer, Wine, Sodas and Seltzer - need a cute another cute idea for drink. Last year I made a green punch that wasn't touched because I don't have a punch bowl to display it in. Maybe this year Santa will bring me one...
Warm Artichoke Dip with Crackers
Swedish Meatballs in Slow Cooker
Tarheels Pimento Cheese Spread
Freshly Popped Popcorn - in bags for the kids
Pumpkin Stew (Beef Stew I bake in a Pumpkin) - serves 8-10
DH's Sandwich (He is going to make a very large Sandwich)
Tarheels Sweet Onion Corn Bake (1 Tray)
Wingit's Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese (I finally tried this! it is good)
Salad with Pecans, Grapes, Red Onion and Crumbled Blue with Balsamic
Ordering Pizza for kids from local Pizzeria
IL's Bringing Something
Favors: Pinata and Crafts from Kids
I feel like we're good the way it is... but would love one more Dinner Dish and Dessert to try -esp. if our guest count goes up. I always send left-overs home and end up sometimes freezing things which is great for us anyways.
