Default Birthday food

We're celebrating my daughter's 2nd birthday on sunday. (dang, time flies!)

I'm expecting 30-40 people and I have to feed them . Normally I would cook a meal for everyone but I don't want to be in the kitchen the entire day anymore. I'm thinking about something buffet style. Some salads, breads etc.

Any suggestions? I need to be able to make it on saturday...

Meatballs are good because you can keep them warm in a chafing dish or crock pot. I like pasta salads but mac and cheese would be good for adults and kids.

Pulled pork (or beef or chicken) in a crockpot is always popular when my husband makes it for family get togethers. We serve it with rolls and cole slaw and people can make their own sandwiches.

We did buffet style for my graduation party. Chicken wings, mini sandwiches, candied bacon weenie roll thingies on a toothpick, fruit tray, veggie kabobs, and cheese and crackers.

If you wanted to do some finger food type things, I also really like doing caprese skewers (cherry tomato, basil leaf, mini mozzarella balls) on a bamboo skewers. I like to stick them in half a head of cabbage for a fun presentation. Fruit skewers are also fun and kids seem to like them as well. Just be careful with little ones and the leftover skewers. Apparently, they also make good swords.

Pasta salads are always good. Fritters (sweet and savory). Fresh seasonal vegetables. Pulled pork or beef is really simple and goes well with good bread.

In one word: delicious. lol

They are those little weenies wrapped in a piece of bacon and coated in brown sugar. You bake them until the sugar melts and the bacons crispy.

I seriously ate like 50.

For the last party I did that wasn't kids only, I did a big tray of baked ziti, pasta salad, fruit skewers, veggies and dip, tortilla chips and 7 layer dip, wings, those mini hot dog things, SO made some kind of a roast in the slow cooker.

What kind of flooring do you have? What kind of furniture? Do you have ample seating or is it standing room mostly?

These factors would all guide my decisions. Anywhere from baked ziti and chocolate cake to veggie tray and peanuts! LOL
