Birthday Party Finger Food Ideas

My daughter's 5th birthday party is in a couple days, and I'm not sure what I'm going to do about food. I might do pigs in a blanket and chips, but would like to throw in another thing or two for variety. There will only be a few other kids other than my daughter, and the guests will be close friends and family. I'm expecting to have approximately 24-32 guests. What are some other good finger food ideas that are inexpensive, and easy to make?

  • my kids liked tortilla cut outs.Make simple sandwiches with flour tortillas in place of bread.Thin meat and/or cheese,thin swipe of mayo.You can stack several.Use a favorite cookie cutter to cut out sandwich shapes.Separate the sandwiches if you stacked them for cutting.I made them in the morn and we ate the scrap sandwiches for lunch.Taste good just not pretty.
