Thank you all so much for the great suggestions!
I'm planning my son's 1 year party to be held indoors at the zoo, we are renting one of their facilities. We have quite a bit of family so it is turning out to be like a mini wedding! I don't want the expense of a full on caterer but also don't want to attempt to prepare food fo the 50 or so adults and 20ish kids that attend. Any suggestions on food I can pick up and bring ? I already plan to do veggie/fruit trays from Costco but wanted to include something else simple but substantial... Not just appetizers. I'm Italian so always love some good Italian options but I only know of local restaurants and think they may be pricey. I can always get some help to throw together some salad for folks as well. I live in Hayward so east bay suggestions are appreciated.
