  • Wow, if the party's between meals, that's going way overboard IMO. I'd personally stick with a few little snacky things, like the crackers/cheese/sUmmer sausage & veggie & fruit platters, and the cake. I don't see a need to serve a full meal plus snacks between meals.

  • It's fine. But later as more children will be coming to the parties than adults, i would cut back on the "meat" items and just have finger / snack foods. But you do have grown ups there. Just make sure you've got stuff to put on the burgers.
