Either way, your parties main them is all about different varieties of sandwiches. Why not try to turn the sandwiches into fun characters.
You can start by getting a nice variety of sandwich recipes to choose from. Once great location is www.foodnetwork.com. Here you will be able to find a nice variety of sandwiches. They have everything from chicken sandwiches, to regular ham and cheese sandwiches. Once you have found a nice amount of sandwiches you can make, why not enlist the help of your guests. You can send out invitations that ask everyone to bring their own sandwich. They can bring a platter of some of their favorite sandwiches. When making your sandwiches I would recommend that you make nice large subs. Then cut each of the sandwiches into bit size pieces. Put a toothpick into each sandwich and place them on platters. It is best to make all of your sandwiches on the day of the party. Since sandwiches are easy to put together it should not take you long at all. You can refrigerate the sandwiches until you are ready to serve them.
When it comes to toppings you will want to have individual bowls for any type of special dressings that you may have made. Be sure to label each dressing so that your guests know what they are eating. If you are going to be having your party outdoors you will want to put your dressings into plastic bottles with tops on them. Squeeze bottles usually work best. You can find plenty of these at your local dollar store. Or you can use bowls that have tops and just keep a spoon next to the bowl for your guests. With a sandwich party you can also have plenty of fresh vegetables that can be used as toppings or sides. I would recommend having fresh carrots, lettuce, tomatoes, and whatever other vegetable you would like on hand. It is also a good idea to have plenty of fresh fruit on hand as well. When it comes to the decorations you will want to go along with your sandwich theme. Look for sandwich serving trays that can be used for your lunches. Even trays that look like giant leaves will come in handy for this special sandwich party.
Last but not least be sure to have plenty of fresh fruity drinks on hand to go with your sandwiches. Large punch bowls filled with fresh fruit will do fine for a nice hot summer day.
