Finalizing the Party Details


Matt's birthday is rapidly approaching.

I haven't checked off much of the to-do list. Here's what lingering:
  1. Buy a shirt for the "I love my bloodhound" applique (luckily the applique is already cut out of vinyl--see photo below). Sew on the applique, wrap the shirt, and write a card/agenda for the day.
  2. Send out a reminder e-mail to the guests with all the logistics.
  3. Plan and make the appetizers (to be served at Matt's soccer game).
  4. Make signs for Matt's game.
  5. Make a reservation at the restaurant.
I'm also trying to keep a centralized "To Bring" list, so I don't forget anything at the last minute:
  • Drinks
  • Appetizers
  • Napkins
  • Signs
  • Board games
  • Blankets
Any ideas for appetizer/snacky food to be served picnic-style? Ideally, it will need to be served cold and require no utensils!

Shrimp cocktail (buy it at costco), there are also a lot of appetizer type items at sam's that require dethawing but that's about it (spirals, etc)...

I love skewers with a ball of mozzerella and a cherry tomatoe wrapped in a basil leaf. Yum!

Speaking of Costco, I love the little mini quiches they sell there!

Pinwheels!

I made them for a friends' babyshower this weekend and they're the perfect casual appetizer. You can make any variety you'd like (we did 3 - Mexican, Mediterranean and Ham/Scallion), and leave them rolled and wrapped until you're ready to serve them, at which time you simply unwrap them and cut them into pinwheels. Super easy. :)
