TIP: Cookies and small bars will look fabulous if you line your serving
plate or tray with a pretty paper doily.
Space the cookies etc. apart so that they are not piled up and the presentation will be elegant. You can also place sliced cake squares or cheesecake squares in paper muffin cups, slightly squeezing them to make 'boats'. This makes handling a potentially sticky item much easier for your quests.
TIP: Serve dips for vegetable in large hollowed out green, yellow or red bell peppers, or a small red cabbage which has been hollowed out.
TIP: Kabobs, really appeal to this age group.
TIP: If planning to serve cookies and squares, those can be made, wrapped well and frozen at least one month ahead of time.
