We have O's christening in August. A fair number of people are invited so we hoped to try and do some of the food ourselves, unlike C's christening where we got everything from M&S.
What party food would you suggest doing at home, and what should we still order in. I was thinking of still getting sarnies made to order as when you do them yourself they tend to dry out. But was thinking of doing chicken ( legs and nuggets ) at home. Also we could do a few bowls of salad at home.
We are catering for roughly 100 people including lots of kids. What's recommendations?? We need to be able to do the food the day/night before as the christening is part of morning mass and so we won't have time in the morning.

I think everyone else has pretty much got it covered, cheese and pinapple always go down well at our buffets when we have them, and a nice piece of pork pie.
