Easter Party Picnic Menu Ideas

Andiereid | Mar 10, 2007 12:00 PM

I'm hosting an outdoor afternoon party for easter - our big kid friends and their little kids are invited. We'll be watching the kids hunt eggs and relaxing and drinking and (hopefully) enjoying the nice weather. So far I've come up with the following and need your ideas to help fill in the gaps.

Specialty Drinks:
Raspberry Lemonade (for the little people)
Mojitos (for the big people)

Assorted tea sandwiches: Ham salad, egg salad, cream cheese and chive (I figure the kids will probably make a good meal out of these)
Need a couple of lighter apps here that can sit at room temperature

Main course menu:
Need a meat course here - roasted lamb? A ham?
Tropical fruit salad
Roasted New Potato salad with Watercress (this is dressed lightly with olive oil and mustard - it's not a creamy potato salad)

Coconut cake
Easter Sugar for the kids

All suggestions appreciated!
