    Please Critique My Birthday Party Menu

    I posted a few days ago looking for ideas for my DD's 2nd birthday party menu. Thanks to everyone who replied! I wanted to respond to my original post but those nasty, little bulletin board bugs won't let me.

    Here's the rough draft of the menu. The party is at 2 p.m. on Sunday. We expect 15 to 18 adults and 8 kids. What do you think?

    Deviled Eggs
    Spinach and Artichokes in Puff Pastry
    Veggies & Dip/Trader Joe's Hummus
    Sausage Balls with Mustard
    Maybe: Mini Crab Cakes (BA 4/09)
    Cheese Plate, Mango Chutney Spread & Crackers
    Dino-Shaped Chicken Nuggets and Dipping Sauce

    Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Icing
    Pink Lady Cupcakes with Swiss Buttercream
    Mixed Fruit in Watermelon Basket

    White & Red Wine

    The mini crab cakes caught my eye from the latest BA and got good reviews.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    It looks good to me!

    I think the crab cakes would be a good addition, because you have several creamy-type items.

    Hope the party is a huge success!

    Looks great to me! What time's the party?
    Merry: I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.
    Pippin: What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?

    Still food blogging, just not as often. Tummy Treasure!

    This looks like a well balanced menu....vegie and meat. I think the mini crabcakes would be delicious, but you have a lot of work here already. I did not read your original post, do you have some help? This looks like fun! Have a great time.

    Wow, sounds great to me too!
    I think you might not even need the crab cakes, everything else should be enough. You do have a variety of items including cheese and vegetables, I love that you have veggies and hummus, it is a great option!
    Not sure if it is at your house or not, but don't forget water too in the beverages. I am one that only drinks water (and the occasional wine), and there were a few times already that I have been to parties done in clubhouses and such where the host didn't have water available.
    Hope you guys have a great party!!
