Party: /ˈpɑːti/ — n, pl -ties. 3. Fun Food

Okay, now for the really fun stuff.  Coming up with food ideas for parties has quickly taken it's place as a favourite activity.  So much room for creativity, even for non-foodies like myself.  Actually when I think about it, I find it immensely satisfying brainstorming party food ideas, but over half of the following dishes were made by someone other than myself...  Namely, Alice the cake making queen...

Generally I try and cover these following categories, but so long as the table is colourful and laden with goodies, the kiddos tend to be happy.  Yeah, this part is SO for me!
