    So I'm catering/hosting a party for my son and I need some help with my menu. Hoping someone on here can help me fill in the holes. Most of this stuff needs to be prepared/cooked ahead so I can enjoy my time with him during the ceremony. I'm looking for hearty appetizers (ceremony at 4 p.m.) and then a large dessert table. What am I missing?

    Bacon wrapped shrimp
    Little smokies/pigs in a blanket
    Some kind of meatballs (either pre-made tomato sauce sliders or swedish style meatballs)
    (I need some kind of chicken recipe)
    and maybe some kind of cold wraps? :confused3 Does anyone have a good recipe for wraps? I don't eat any kind of mayonnaise or salad dressing, but I'm not opposed to making them without trying them.....if someone has a good recipe to share :rotfl2:
    Also, veggie trays with dip.
    My son is requesting perogies (would you think these are weird to have?)
    Do I need to have some cold items? If so, what?

    Then I'm having a huge cupcake tower with the following:
    Chocolate/peanut butter
    red velvet
    and maybe one other kind of homemade cupcake.

    I'm also making mini-cheesecakes and homemade gourmet brownies.

    It feels like I'm missing something important, but what. Any suggestions? Have any appetizer recipes you would like to share?
    Thanks for looking!
