    Yes you must provide food to evening guests.

    Even if someone stops by your house polite hosting requires you offer them a snack and refreshment.  You are inviting them to spend their time celebrating you.  The least you can offer them is a snack.

    I agree. You have to provide something for them. It doesn’t have to be another three course meal, but maybe snack stations? Or finger sandwiches? How about fruit and cheese? cupcakes? (Not always a low cost thing, but it might be if you can shop around) I agree with andilovesj, the probably won’t expect a huge meal, but a snack would be very nice.

    I agree with PP that there needs to be atleast snacks simply because it is a polite thing to do. Also if the disco part includes any alcohol it is always a good idea to have some light finger foods to keep guests…uhm level headed 😉
