Birthday Party Food Ideas

Etta's birthday is just around the corner and I need some help with food planning. I've got dessert all figured out (chocolate cupcakes and a butterfly vanilla ice cream cake...which I'm attempting to make) but not sure about the rest of it. The main dish is between just ordering pizza or a sub platter. But, with all the little kids coming I'm not sure if the sandwiches would actually get eaten. Pizza is safer, just not healthier. I'll have to have a bowl of goldfish and that's as far as my brain has gone. Any other ideas that are kid and adult friendly?

Don't forget that the kids could have fun making a kid friendly and healthy trail mix that uses the fish crackers. For instance, you have raisins, peanuts, cereal, etc. Okay, we throw in marshmellows and m-m's too. The kids love to have such a fun and colorful cup. The adults would love the sandwich platter, and the kids could have some little trianble pb and j sandwiches. Add some juice boxes and a punch bowl for the adults and you could entertain everyone at their level. Anyway, could be fun. Good luck!
