I would like to thank everyone who offered suggestions directed to my earlier post concerning theme ideas for our upcoming Teacher/Staff luncheon during Appreciation Week in May. This was my first attempt at a discussion group forum. I am pleased with the way everybody generously contributed ideas. What a terrific support system --
I have decided to follow a "Garden Party" theme for the luncheon. It sounds like something that would work well in my middle school given the $$ restrictions and low number of volunteers. Special thanks to Pam for all her help and tips on how to create this experience.
I'm thinking about offering several different salads (maybe 6) plus small croissants filled with turkey breast slices and cheese. A featured caterpillar cake with additional "critter" cupcakes plus some "worms in dirt" (pudding idea from Jell-o). I also have considered offering some Sangria (non-alcoholic, of course) punch, flavored iced tea and lemonade.
This menu seems a little light
-- any more suggestions for additional items to add to complement a Garden Party theme? I am referring to things such as additional foods, decorations and/or props to make this memorable? I will be providing for about 100 adults. :confused:
