I'm planning a small get-together this weekend...?!

Question: I'm planning a small get-together this weekend!.!.!.!?
Its going to be at around 7pm on Saturday!.!.!.

I'm 21 years old and the people coming over are between 20 & 30 years old!. (young 30's)

I'm going to set out a platter with cheese and crackers

And I was going to make a dip for chips/crackers (its a buffalo chicken dip, w/out the chicken!.!.it just tastes like hot wings!.!.its very yummy)!.!.
I was also going to have some sweet snacks out (brownies)

Should I have actual food!? I was thinking of ordering a few pizza's

Or is snack food enough!?

Is the munchie food enough!? Or should I also get a veggie or fruit platter!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

It really depends on the expectations you have set for the party!. If it is an "open house" type thing - I'd love you to drop over Saturday evening between 7 and 12, come anytime - then snack foods are enough!. If the expectation is more - I'd love you to come to a party Saturady at 7:00 - then more substantial eats are required!.

I like to offer a complete balanced meal even if it is delivered as snack type dishes!. That implies a veggie platter and/or fruit!.

Hope it goes well!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Based on the time you said you are having it (7pm), I would assume that everybody would have already eaten dinner!.
Therefore, I would serve what you had listed, cheese & crackers, chips & dip, etc!. You can even go to BJ's or Sam's Club and see what they have for frozen appetizers that can be heated up rather quickly!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i would have a few more apps!. Maybe some hot appetizers like wings or cut up a calzone or finger sandwich platter you can order from a deli!. a veggie platter would be good too!.
you can usually order platters with apps or finger foods from a grocery store or deli!.
a full meal isnt necessary since most would have already eaten dinner, but if there will be drinking, people will prob want some food to eat!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

you could have snacks that are not actually dinner but can be a little filling!. i think if you are not making dinner the veggie & fruit trays are good & also other variety of dips & salsas!. you could also serve nachos!. & mabye potato chips & other kinds of chipsWww@FoodAQ@Com

The munchie thing is a good idea, you should have a little bit more though!. A veggie tray and maybe another dip!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I would do a veggie and dip tray and a fruit bowl!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
