Ok.. so, my mother and grandmother are driving me crazy when it comes to K's birthday party menu. The party is from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, so I know we won't need a ton of food. But, I want to have some light finger foods... similar to what is available at a shower.
What I've planned:
chicken salad croissants
bowl of mixed fruit
spinach dip and crackers
miniature pb & j or pimento cheese sandwiches (cut out in shapes of bunnies... primarily so the kids have something to nibble on)
I don't feel like this is going overboard. Basically, if people want to snack, then they can. Well, my mom and grandmother keep hounding telling me that I don't need to have any food other than a bowl of mixed nuts and the cake itself. My grandmother wants me to use the chicken salad croissants for the family to have for lunch BEFORE the party. I'm more of the thought that people are on their own for lunch before the party, if they want to eat beforehand, that is fine, but if they don't, there will be some food there.
I told my mom that I would think it was strange if I went to a party and all they had was nuts and cake.
What do yall think? Am I going overboard here?
