We are having DD's first birthday on Dec 19. I'm inviting about 40 -45 people. No kids really. Give me some recipes for dinner and appetizers please! Also if anyone has a good punch recipe, alcoholic and non. I know so far my mother is making broccoli rabe Italian style, there will be a salad, my FIL is making eggplant parm, and I am making a Lasagna with chicken, veggies, and white sauce and taco dip. I just hit a brain fart in thinking about anything else.

that would be so much easier to have a cook out, we did that for her baptism ( its also a lot cheaper lol), but not so lucky in the winter with snow lol. I will try the punch soo good.
