So, it's a shared meal.  Families of girls bring savoury and boys bring sweets.

I always struggle with this sort of thing and end up buying something from Brumby's or Baker's Delight or something.  Surely I can come up with something.... can you help me with ideas of what you would take?  There are five of us going and we have to take enough for ourselves and a bit more...

but for savoury you could go with pinwheel sandwiches, fruit platter, strawberry santas, savoury muffins, mini pizzas, quiches

I don't suppose you have a recipe that you always use that you could share?

Last year I made fruit kebabs. The teachers were very thankful as they had heaps of "party" type, processed, sugary stuff. They were a hit.
This year Im making very tiny cupcakes with either Xmas themed fondant shapes or Initials for all the kids.
