It sounds delicious!  Do your friends eat a lot of sweets?  I seemed like a lot of desserts…and I like veggie trays!

Then I think I wouldn’t include the veggie tray and do all desserts except ice cream cake!

I say yes for the veggie tray and no for the ice cream cake! The rest of it sounds delicious! Wish I was coming 🙂

I’d say yay on the veggie tray and nay on the ice cream cake. Sounds great!

I’d do the veggie so you just have something a little healthy in case you have people who are into that, and I’d just pick 3 of the four dessert options. I’d probably do only one variety of cupcake and then get the cake- less cooking for you!

I would definitely get the veggie tray… and maybe just switch it out for one of the other options.  It seems like you have a LOT of cheese.  I personally love cheese but some people don’t, and if you’re on a diet or lactose intolerant there isn’t going to be a lot to eat.

I agree that there needs to be a lighter option, but veggie trays can be boring a bit so you could do something slightly different but healthy

like a skewer of a piece of roasted orange pepper, cherry tomato half drizzeled with a bit of pesto

or a platter or marinated mushrooms, artichoke hearts and tomato haves with toothpicks

@vttp926: You can buy jars of marinated mushrooms and artichoke hearts usually with the canned vegetables (top shelf normally)

Sounds good, but you may want to nix one of the “cheesey” snacks and go for a chicken thing (wings, tendors with dip, etc) or something. Also, make sure your guests know you aren’t serving a “dinner” just snacks so they know to eat before hand 

 

Also, I would skip the ice cream cake… the melting factor if you live in a warm area or have a warm house will make it melt everywhere. and plan on 2 cupcakes per person if doing normal size and 3 or 4 of the mini if your friends like sweets.
