Ideas for Dad's 80th birthday brunch
I'm giving a brunch for about 30 people to celebrate my dad's 80th next Sunday.
It will be in the garden and buffet style. I'm planning to serve a blintz souffle, a hashed browned casserole, fruit platter, fish platter (from the deli), creamed cheese, bagels and tiny chicken and apple sausages. For dessert I'm thinking a birthday cake and cookie platter. Can you add or change anything? Most guests are above 50 and half are 70-80ish.
I've ordered umbrella tables, pretty chairs and need to check another place for linens or I will order the solid colors from the rental place.
I'm using stainless silverware and nice plastic plates, cups etc. I'm trying to hire a magician to do close up magic tricks for entertainment. I'll put the stereo on with soft music for background.
Can you suggest anything else? I would like to do a clever favor but can't think of anything. I'd love some ideas.
Thanks in advance!
