Question: Can anyone gives me hints to hosting a succesful party!? !?
I will have about 30 - 40 people over for a party Saturday night!. If anyone has any tips on how to plan for a party, things that ar usually forgotten, recipes etc I would love to hear them!.!.

I will be catering for the party myself with BBQ and salad!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Hey Reno, keep it plain a simple, the BBQ and salads are great!. I have no idea of what meat your going to BBQ, but grap some of those Italian pork sausages, grilled red bell peppers, grilled onions, can be done on the bbq!. Look at raw vegetable dips using!. your celery, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, cuecumber!. I would make a fresh Avocado dip, using yougurt, squeeze of lemon and a dollop of Philly cream cheese, blend to all smooth!. also you can do the same with a dill pickle dip!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.use your imangination, this stuff you can pre-prepare and refrigerate!.

Just remember, enjoy youself also, Happy Birthday, and have a cold one for me!!


wow thats loads of people to cater for!.

We always make jelly shots which go down very well!. You make up a jelly recipe as normal except replace the cold water with alcohol - we usually use greengage jelly and apply sours!. Pour into shot glasses and leave to set - they go very well with a casual BBQ!.

Why dont you make a potato salad becaise that goes far with so many people!. also do some garlic bread and some normal salad!.

I would use paper plates and disposable glasses and cutlery so that you dont have to do dishes afetrwards!. Dont forget to get napkins and salad dressings, BBQ sauce etc!.

Good luck!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well thats a lot of people for one person to cater for!. Well don't forget the basics like snack foods!. Crackers, chips, dips, spreads, veggy platter, cheese platter, etc!. just some good finger foods cause people will snack all day on those before and after the main meal!. Make sure you have a variety of drinks like coffee, water, tea, pop, beer and mixed drinks if your planning on having them!. Sometimes its easier to have people bring their own drinks for a party that big!. As far as some good recipes there are tons of internet sites that have great recipes!. FoodNetwork!.com for example has just tons of great stuff from different chefs, or you can just google what you want to make and you will get a lot of results for it!. Have a great party!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
