This year my home parties have been pretty laid back due to busy schedules and tightening of budgets. But, being me, I still wanted to celebrate our milestones in some fashion. The picnic-themed party that I hosted for my husband’s birthday this year fit the bill for an easy, but fun event.
Picnic Birthday Party Menu:
- Pressed Italian Sandwiches
- veggie sandwiches that I created that had carrots, olives, hummus, and cucumber layered on a flat bread
- Chicken Salad Sandwiches
- Rosemary Ham and Brie Sandwiches (SO GOOD– I’ll be sharing the recipe for this one soon!)
Chips: Sweet Potato and Kettle Chips — I just bought these chips at Trader Joes and then put them into paper bags that I had printed labels on.
- Watermelon & Feta Salad
- Wedge Salad (recipe coming soon!)
Dessert: We finished off the meal with a dessert of spiked ice creams.
Drinks: Signature cocktails, beers, and lemonades made for easy beverages
Finally, a selection of lawn games such as a ring toss, bocce ball, and badminton kept everyone entertained.
