- Wedding: December 2011
Hello again everyone
I need help with the following please:
What is a healthy finger food menu for kids? We have thought of the food but somehow it seems dull. My chef gave me a menu which sounds impressive, but I do not think it is child-friendly food:
Ham and cheese pies
Chicken somethings ??? (I just don’t like nuggets! Could it be homemade?)
Carrots formed in balls (my kids love it)
I still need something else. Maybe mini-pizzas and wraps filled with vegetables (Juliette cut) and a dip?
For dessert (plated for every child)
Fresh fruit dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with edible glitter
A mini chocolate cake (sponge) with chocolate ganache and garnished with silver balls.
There will be plenty of real fruit juice in the little boxes for them.
The adults are going to have a buffet, but at a wedding it was served too late for the kids and they did not eat at all. Would this be enough? We are paying less than for the adults because of their menu.
LEMON CHICKEN NUGGETS
HOME MADE MEATBALLS
HAM AND CHEESE PIES
PORK WRAPPED WITH BACON
SPINACH AND CORN TARTS
FRESH FRUIT DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE WITH GLITTER PLATTER
RICH CHOCOLATE SQUIRES WITH TURKISH DELIGHT
What activities could we give the children? We are having an outdoors wedding, with a spitbraai. We cannot have activities where we need supervision and we do not want to pay too much. We thought about a jumping castle. We have about 30 kids coming. The boys do not like coloring in too much.
Could one mention that we are having it outdoors with a jumping castle and then ask them to bring a toy for their own child or is it going to cause a fight?
Maybe one could get the girls fairy wings and for the boys wooden guns?
When we are going to take our photos, what does the guests do? The photographer said it would take 2 hours and for me it seems way too long. Wouldn’t one hour do?
The guests will be seated while we are taking photos and will have a starter. I am still thinking about one of these fabulous choices or whether I’m going to ask for fresh fruit. What do you think?
SMOKED SALMON PARCEL FILLED WITH RED ONION CREAM CHEESE, CONFIT APPLE AND GINGER, PINEAPPLE CHUTNEY AND CHAR GRILLED CIABATTA
POACHED PEAR, BLUE CHEESE AND ROASTED RED ONION TART ON A BED OF LETTUCE WITH BALSAMIC REDUCTION
PAPAYA WRAPPED IN BLACKFORREST HAM, CAPERS, ROCKET AND MUSTARD DRESSING
PICKLED BEETROOT AND MUSHROOM SALAD WITH HALLOUMI AND BASIL DRESSING
STRAWBERRY, ROASTED BUTTERNUT AND GRILLED FETA WITH GARLIC CROUTONS AND SALAD
SLOW ROASTED TOMATO, BACON, BASIL AND OLIVE TERRINE, MELBA TOAST AND LEMON CREAM CHEESE
Could one let them fill in the register and have a photo of them taken while waiting for it, let it be printed out, give them one as a favor and keep one for the register? Would that keep them occupied enough? Of course we wouldn’t force them to take a photo.
There will be a cash bar too.
Thank you soooo much!
