13 Outdoor Birthday Food Ideas

13 Outdoor Birthday Food Ideas:

  1. Garden salad
  2. Order pizza and have it delivered to your pool-side party. Have it delivered for the time you would like everyone to eat. It will be a hit and easy for you.
  3. Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches (if there is no allergy concerns, of course).
  4. Fruit kabobs
  5. Goldfish crackers
  6. Chips
  7. Trail mix of some kind
  8. Dried fruit (raisins, bananas, apple chips, pineapple, mango, etc) – SuperTarget has many varieties.
  9. Animal crackers
  10. Ritz bits sandwiches with cheese or peanut butter filling.
  11. Cold pasta salad (kept properly chilled, of course).
  12. Fruit salad (also chilled).
  13. Veggie tray (be sure to keep any dips chilled, of course).

    Great ideas. Little pieces of cheese and tiny sausages or cutup hotdogs served with toothpicks is a hit, too. Of course, they have to be old enough not to swallow the toothpicks.

    What wonderful ideas….If we are having a summer party or summer birthday party, I always make Fruit Pizza. It is a big hit with both kids and adults…
    I will have to try some of your ideas!

    Subs. I love sub sandwhiches for outdoor eating. They’re so messy that it’s a natural fit.

    Hey! Nice to see you doing a list again! I hope this means you’re a bit less harried lately.

    These are neat ideas; I wonder how many I can put to the kids’ birthday parties at the end of the summer.

    (what’re the Shrek babies up to??? I’ve been loving those pictures!)

    Some of those items are more my kids’ taste than mine, but it’s a great list!
