Does anyone have any suggestions on what kind of appetizers to serve at a 1 year olds b-day? There will be kids ages 1-14 and adults...Any suggestions would be great!

Pig in the blankets are great too. At almost 9, my son still loves them. They don't have to be served hot either. Takes about 10 minutes to make, so you'll have time for other things.

for my 1st birthday parties i served pizza and for the younger kiddos grilled cheese and for other stuff i had a veggie tray and fruit tray and cheese and crackers and i also did a bread bowl with spinach dip for the adults and actually some of the kids also liked it!! i go a little over board on food but i have a large family with large appetites so i want to make sure there is plenty of food to go around! for the last party i threw for my 3 kids one turning 1 and another turning 2 and the other 3 i had a mickey mouse theme so i did food to go with that which was grilled cheese sandwiches cut into shapes and hot dogs with all the fixings! it was a huge hit! and i had all the other stuff i mentioned above and some chips and dip too!! sorry for the ramble but i hope it gives you some ideas!!

Do a kind of Chex Mix, but make it yourself.  Then you can use your child's favorite cereal in the mix and keep it safe for all ages.  You could also do cinnamon toast.  Toast the bread and cut it into fun shapes, butter while warm, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top.  It's a favorite at my house.

We served sandwiches (ham,tuna,egg salad..), a fruit tray, a veggie tray, cupcakes (instead of cake), carrot cake (mostly for the adults), deviled eggs, a pickle/cheese tray and 2 kinds of the parents choice puffed cereal snacks (for the kids around 1-2 years old). We served juice, pop and coffee. We had mostly adults with a few kids aged 1-4 years old. Hope that gives you some ideas.

Cheese is always good-cut up in small cubes, babies can pick it up themselves, and all age kids will like. How about a fruit tray? Little ones might not be able to chew veggies, but can all probably gum some berries, banana slices, etc. Pigs in a blanket (with mini-hotdogs or vienna (sp?) inside crescant rolls) would be good for any that have enough teeth. Maybe mini-cupcakes for the little ones, they can pick them up and not even need a fork.

By the way, your girls' picture is gorgous! I love the white dresses and bare feet!

I am having my baby boy's 12 month birthday this weekend and I plan to have cheese ball and crackers, along with different types of cheese, salomi,  a vege. tray with dip and chips and pretzels.  And then of course cake and ice cream.   Not sure if that helps but thought I would give you my menu:)

Quoting Pamela:

I would stick to things that are  reasonably small like sandwiches on dollar rolls.  You can cut them in half or out with a cookie cutter and make cute appetizers.  My best advice is to not serve anything needing flatware or heating.  Stick to stuff like veggie and fruit trays or tortilla roll-ups (sandwich stuff in a tortilla then cut up).  Stay with BASIC stuff to keep your sanity and keep the mess down.  Save the flatware for the cake, that way you only need to buy forks and you don't have to worry about running out of any of that stuff.
