60th Birthday Party Ideas

I am having a 60th birthday celebration for my mom at a super expensive suite. My dilemma; I have to cut corners on the food. What can I do that I don't have to cook?

-Finger sandwiches: Tuna, ham salad, egg salad
-Chips: Tortilla with salsa and french onion dip
-Drinks: Kool-aid, punch, lemonade
-Dessert: Cookies - peanut butter, sugar, etc.

Or buy Little Debbie snacks and cut them up. Peanut butter wafers were popular at a church I went to. And duh, birthday cake! :) What was I thinking? (12/05/2009)

I went to an 80th birthday party a few years ago, at the person's home, and I thought what they did was great. It did include having to cook one item, a large ham. The ham was put on the table with lots of crusty bread, cheese, butter, bowls of salad, dried apricots, dates, and condiments, pickles, mustard etc. No one was served, everyone just cut their own bread, and made their own sandwiches to their liking. There was fruit salad and cream for dessert, and a birthday cake. (12/07/2009)

You could have a "dessert party" and serve a couple of different flavored birthday cakes, some bakery bought cookies and dessert bars, and a large platter, or 2 or 3, of fresh fruit. For drinks, you could have coffee, tea, and some fruit punch. No one remembers the food, they just remember the fun! (12/08/2009)

Tortilla Spirals:

Mix cream cheese and sour cream, then add whatever you want, ie chopped olives, shredded cheese, chopped meat, peppers, etc. Spread on tortilla and roll up. When ready to serve, just slice the rolled-up tortilla. Pretty and delicious. (12/08/2009)
