Birthday party food

For a first birthday party-brunch time-with an invite list of 15 (6 of whom probably will not come) and are all adults or teenagers...how much food would you make?

Re: Birthday party food

depends

I tend to keep food pretty simple
the "cake"
water bottles
maybe a veggie tray and some chips
if at a meal time eaither sandwiches or like pizza
but I hate fussy..

Re: Birthday party food

I like to know everyone will eat and have leftovers, it stresses me to think of anyone leaving hungry, so I overcook.
I would make something like a breakfast casserole or quiche or smoked salmon with bagels or a couple of those and then for sides I would do something like salad, fruit tray and veggie tray. Me personally I would also have some snackies like chips or other apps to have around when people arrive.
Enjoy!

My Mood:
We host several functions a year usually for between 30-40 people. For the last several years that's included a baptism brunch and a first birthday party for 3 kiddos (and one on the way) at brunch I like to offer a meat and meat-free breakfast casserole, fruit salad, chicken salad croissants or muffins, a veggie tray some chips and dip and of course cake.

We had a similar size group (if all 15 come) for brunch and I did 2 egg casseroles (1 dairy/meat free), one batch of pioneer woman cinnamon rolls (makes a TON, we had crazy amounts left over, half recipe would have done it), and a big fruit salad. We had plenty of food, only thing I would have done different is have both casseroles be full 9x13, I did a half for the dairy free and we could've used more.
