Menu for Summer Backyard Birthday Party

undesigned | Jun 9, 2011 11:56 AM

I'm planning a backyard party for my 3 year old daughter's birthday in July. We'll probably have about 15-20 children (2 and 3 year olds) and 30-40 adults.

I'd like to prepare the food myself but am stumped as to what to have on the menu. I was thinking of making PB&J and turkey and cheese sandwiches for the kiddos along with some fruit. However, I'm at a loss as to what to prepare for the adults. I'd like to do a little fancier than turkey sandwiches but also want something that is fairly easy to put together the morning of the party. Any sandwich, green salad, and/or pasta salad recommendations?

Thanks!!!
