Frugal Birthday Party Food Ideas

Tomorrow is my son’s birthday party.  While I have figured out the cupcakes, goodie bags and entertainment, I needed help in the grown up food department.  The party is to be held after lunch but I wanted to have a small appetizer people could enjoy while there.  But I didn’t want it to bee too much work or too expensive.  I stopped by Costco looking for a quick alternative but what they had available was more money than I wanted to spend.

So I turned to Twitter for advice.  I asked my followers for ideas on a cold appetizer I could make that could be enjoyed by adults and children at the same time.  Here are some of the helpful ideas I received in response:

All of the ideas are great, simple and budget friendly.  but ultimately I decided to go with the roll-ups.  Originally I wanted to make turkey roll up, but couldn’t find a recipe I liked.  The recipe shared by Amy looks so good and easy to make.  It looks perfect to eat at room temperature and can make even a day ahead.  These were all things I really needed in this case.  I just bought all of the ingredients and it was a total of $3.97, since I had salsa and sour cream in my pantry.

You will find the link to the recipes shared by clicking on each image.  I want to thank Amy, Andrea, Samantha, Phoebe and Sandy for helping me out when I really needed.  how about you, do you have any ideas for easy to make and delicious cold appetizers?
