melon anything... easy for them to eat & healthy , and cheese puffs, less chance of them choking than chips, but they seem to love them

Hi, my son loves Waybullo but we couldn't find any balloons with them on, even on the web. You could have a cake with waybullo figurines on them (you know the ones that are about 10cm high), or mini cupcakes (as they are so little they wont want too much cake) and put little waybullo edible cake drawings on them. My sister always does a cupcake tree for her littlies instead of a big cake.
Also you can get cake sprinkles that have no artificial colors, flavours or preservatives.(i think the brand is Mckenzies.).
My sister just had a 4yo party, and brought one big bucket of mixed bickie and chip mini packets, and one big bucket of mini water and juice bottles/cartons. Depends on the age of the guests. Hope this helps.

What is the theme of the party? How many are coming?

celery boats. cut into 4-5 in peices and fill with peanut butter and raisins, almond butter and cranberries or bluberries, and cream cheese with olives.

Fruit or fruit and cheese kabobs. Any firm fruit or large berries work and you need Cheddar mozzarella or the like cheese wise. You can slice and then use a cookie cutter to make cute shapes (espacially if you are using melons of any sort or pineapple)

Tea Sandwiches. Many varieties. Fav in my house is sundried tomatos on sourdough with cream cheese. (you will need metal cookie cutters and a hammer to cut into cute shapes)

Chips and dip.

Stuffed mushrooms. Italian Sausage, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, and a little olive oil. Mix together and stuff into caps.

If you feel like messing with it. This is a fun idea for the older kids. Talk canned biscuits roll them out a little and par bake them. Have ready lots of pizza toppings and sauces. Let the kids make their own pizzas.

Oh, I forgot... Pizza (you can do homemade) and put anything on it you like (healthy or unhealthy). My 10month old put away 3 pieces the other night. You could slice them in the convention wedge shape, or cut them into little circles (easy to hold for little hands). :)
