For our grad parties my mom always did like a tuna pasta salad, potato salad, and then a fruit bowl (actually a cut out watermelon with fruit in it but that's a lot of work lol).

Also, lil sammiches, like turkey or ham on buns is quick and fairly easy.

pinwheels! They are my favorite snack food for parties! Do a veggie tray too with a few different kinds of dips!

I have to agree, pinwheels are so quick and easy to make, and they are like the perfect party appetizer, chips and dips. You are going to want things that don't take too much time to prepare.

How do you make pinwheels?

Lots of good ideas already...I would say a meat and cheese platter with rolls to make sanwiches, a veggie tray, fruit salad, diff types of summer salads like pasta, macaroni, and potato. Maybe chips and dip.

The ladies have given you some great ideas!

I also love doing finger type of foods. I love doing fruit kabobs because they are easy to make. Or even fruit and cheese kabobs to change it up.

Maybe some meatballs that are in either sweet BBQ sauce, or curry bbq sauce or marinara sauce or whatever y'all like.

One thing I like to make that is a little time consuming but such a great treat is make sugar cookies and put a cream cheese mixture and some fresh fruit on top of it. It's a play off of the peachy plantation pizza from pampered chef. but you can pre make the sugar cookies along with buying the ones that you just put on the cookies sheet so that takes off some time. I like putting kiwi and strawberry on them.

You could premake gyro type sandwhiches and cut them in whatever thickness and stick a toothpick in them to keep from unrolling. Alot of that you can do the night before.

best of luck
