  • I say if they offer let them bring whatever. Sounds like you have things pretty much covered so anything else brought would just be extra.

  • You could let one of them bring fruit and dip so you have one less thing to make. Cheeseball is good for all ages, any kind of cold salad. I would give them a few options and let them pick what they want to bring. Corn on the cob is fun too!
