I would argue that one of the most important elements of a party is the menu. When your guests are happily sated with food, they are much happier to be at your house and with company. And lets not forget food is a conversation piece many a time. Because I think this is so important I’m super sad I got little to no pictures of the food.
However, I will share with you my super simple menu and where I got some of my ideas/recipes from. Let me preface by saying I strove to have many healthy choices, for myself and many of my guests eating clean and whole is very important. And sometimes its fun to have a cheat here and there.
Entree was pizza, one of each:
- Bacon & Feta
- Chicken Sausage and Artichoke White
- Pepperoni & Garlic
- Mixed Vegetable (Vegan & Gluten Free)
- Green Bean Salad
- Garden Salad with optional mix ins of chopped dates, sunflower seeds, and raisins
- BBQ chicken
- Fruit Salad
- Vanilla Cupcakes
- Vegan Cheesecake from Hungry Hungry Hippie
It’s also nice when you have gracious friends like mine who made dairy free chia brownies and a delicious beet hummus that was a big hit at the party!
This menu was extremely easy to execute, pretty much everything was put together the day before and because my party started at 2, I had time to warm up or cook whatever I needed. All the pizza crusts were store bought from Wegmans, which helped greatly. Overall a great and well executed plan on our part. Feel free to email me if you are itching for some recipes!
