Help me plan my daughter's 1st Birthday!

Hi guys,

Wanted to reach out to you for some assitance in planning my daughter's first birthday -- which will be on 2/20. It will be from 11-1pm and there will be 16 adults and 9 kids.

Here's what I have so far...
- I was planning to make my husband's grandma's special pasta sauce and meatball recipe (which I can make adhead of time since it freezes really well). And we will also have Korean food which my sister is taking care of (my daughter is half Korean).

- custom ice cream cake from Carvel

What I need are some ideas for finger foods... pigs in a blanket, spring rolls, mini burgers??

What do you think? I don't want to blow the bank on this but I'm willing to spend some money. I also don't want to be slaving in the kitchen -- I really want to hang out with my family and spend time with them.

I was thinking along the lines of frozen apps from Costco. Have you had any luck on those? Any you'd strongly recommend?

We'd also have a veggie and cheese plate. Maybe a cheese pizza for the kids??
