    Older finger food is the best thing to go for.

    -Pizza slices, you could cook a few pizzas then cut them up to finger size.

    -Chips, with a Selection of sauces, ketchup, bbq, brown sauce.

    -Selection of crisps, eg. Salt&vinger, Cheese and onion, Chicken.

    -BBQ Chicken wings, /chicken strips.

    -Mini cheese cakes, iceland do a great Selection.

    -Jacket potatoes, but do small potatoes, then add on a filling, eg. tuna mayo, butter.

    -Cupcakes, don't make them look babyish, do melted chocolate on them.

    -Hot dogs/burgers.



    -Sweets Selection.

    -Fruits, to be dipped in chocolate.

    -Mini sausages on sticks.

    -Sausage rolls.

    -Sandwiches, fillings could include egg mayo, tuna mayo, ham, cheese.

    -For a better idea you could add tortillas(Buy a big pack of them at the shops)

    Then cook some chicken and add some seasoning. Add a salsa, or mayo shredded cheese, sour cream, salad.

    -Nachos with a salsa and melted cheese.

    -Cold pasta, with tomato, or tuna mayo, or cheese.


    -Garlic bread.

    -mozzarella sticks.

    There are multiple things you could do. For something sweet cupcakes or cookies(go further) are great. Most only require a couple eggs and vegetable oil. And you can be creative and make them halloween style. (a ghost, cat, or can say something like "trick or treat" on them. A Cheese Ball- Cream Chz, Dried Beef (corned beef in packets) green onion, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce. Crackers Rotel Dip- Velveeta, Rotel ( there's cheaper stuff) and Chips Little Smokies- BBQ sauce, Lil Smokies (simmer in a crock pot) or Little Smokies in a Blanket- Wrap little smokies in crescent roll pieces and bake. Deviled Eggs are REALLY cheap Pot of Chili- goes a long way Little Pizzas- English Muffins, Pizza sauce, cheese and Pepperoni Chip Dip- 16oz sour cream and 1 packet onion soup mix Pretzels Hope this helps!

    I am fourteen, around your daughter's age so I will tell you from a teenage girl's perspective! We are at that age where we don't want something to childish, but also not to mature...

    I would have snack things with a hint meal type things.

    Assorted crisps, salted nuts, chicken wings, barbecue ribs,cupcakes, biscuits, sandwiches (not cut in a babyish way!), pizza finger slices, min hotdogs, mini sausage rolls, sweets, fizzy drinks, juice etc. This will be on the snack table.

    You can also entertain them later in the party bringing out a Chocolate fondue machine (not a professional one! just a cheap £20 from the departmental stores) you just compliment that with marshmellows, strawberries, pineapple slices etc etc. This will make them feel special and mature lol.

    Hope I Helped x
