Thanks I have looked into caters and to doing it myself, I will more likely end up doing it myself as for 15 people the catering was working out to be over $800 not including the birthday cake, dessert or drink. Awww how nice it be to have the work done for me

$20 bucks a year for your 40 years of celebration...another $1200 for booze and cake and it’s $50 per year for 40 years 😁😁😁

Shop around and have it catered, have it a bit classy... proper wine glasses and cocktails. Get a jumping castle for the kids. Not a sit down three course meal though but a decent feed the catered can serve food and drinks.
Buy a nice summer dress and some nice slides.
Let guests know you have gone to effort so they attend and tell them not to bring anything it’s catered for and maybe say smart casual so they know not to rock up in daggy cloths.

Nice cake and champagne for when you cut it

Thanks I feel guilty actually getting caters as I know I can do just as good job as well as do it for cheaper, mabey I am a Scrooge lol

I had a milestone bday in Summer this year. We did a mexican theme, self catered. It was yum, easy and we had more $ left over for drinks/cocktails. There are heaps of make ahead recipes online. Recommend!
