  • It should be plenty of food. Here's a little trick I learned: use saucer-sized serving plates. It keeps people from loading up on too much so that everyone gets some of each thing. Is the 1/4 sheet cake a single layer? If so, the pieces will be small to feed that many adults (assuming the kids will be eating the cupcakes), but it should be enough for everyone to get a piece.

    Have fun!

  • You might want to grab some chips and or pretzels. don't forget sodas. Also, Next time narrow it down to two main items. You will be better able to judge what you will have then.

    Pizza is acceptable and fun, as well as fried chicken platters from your local grocery store. Less work for you is more time to enjoy your child.
