Wedding Anniversary Party Food
As a foodie fiend the food at the surprise wedding anniversary party was important.
The homemade flags looked fabulous and so happy on the sandwiches.
I planned out lots of different items all snack and easy to consume without needing a table. There were 3 main areas I explored in the food Vietnamese, Mediterranean and British. To celebrate their 25th my parents went to Vietnam and we’ve been having a lot of Vietnamese food since. For Vietnam I had spring rolls, chicken skewers and prawn crackers. In the Mediterranean section I had couscous, olives, cooked meats and yummy anitpasti things. All good to snack on. For the British side of things it was strawberries – nearly 3 kilograms altogether, cheesecakes, ham salad sandwiches and cucucmber and cress sandwiches, plus a few biscuits. Biscuits are very British right?
I didn’t think the sandwiches would be hugely popular not with all the other food but they were snapped up. It was worth making them all to see them all enjoyed and disappear through the night.
I made these lovely rich vanilla biscuits and decorated them with my alphabet stamp kit I used to sell when Sew White was a shop. It was nice to make the food a little more personal and fun.
A massive pot of strawberries – there was just under 2 kilograms in there.
Love hearts of course!
I made a lot of little toothpick flags to use to decorate the food.
Pretty and useful to spearing your dinner.
I made these fabulous marshmallow snacks. Everyone loved them. Recipe will be on the blog this week.
I had the malteser fridge tray bake which was the first thing to be completely consumed.
It’s always a hit to make and here is the link to recipe;
Lots of chicken skewers, Yakitori and Satay. These came from Sainsburys in their frozen party range. They were delicious.
I really liked that all the Sainsbury’s frozen party food cooked at the same temperature for the same amount of time. It made it a lot easier to manage cooking so much food.
The spring rolls were so tasty especially with some sweet chilli dipping sauce.
So much happy happy food.
A family friend Neil posted a lovely photo on Instagram of the cheesecakes and their little flags.
