    Finger sandwiches (cucumber, chicken salad, pimento) is a good cheap option …. if you wanted to beef this option up, croissants with homemade chicken salad.

    Mix a jar of Kraft marshmallow with block of cream cheese and to make any color u want open a box of jello just add a tablespoon ( not made up just straight from box ) it’s awesome to dip fruit in make sure to use Kraft brand

  13. This may be a frowned upon idea but if it’s close friends and family a pot luck. Just have them bring whatever they like to make. That way it’s in everyone’s budget and you don’t have to foot the bill. Otherwise sloppy joes maybe
