under the sea birthday party - part 2

Earlier this week {here}, I shared some pictures from the birthday party we hosted for my niece and our families.  Today, I wanted to share a few pictures of the food.

Since the stuffed burgers turned out so great for Memorial Day {see here}, my husband offered to make them again for this BBQ.  All the burgers were "cooked to order" where each guest could pick what they wanted in their burgers.  The stuffing options were a few different kinds of cheese, white onions, red onions, mushrooms, bell pepper, or bacon.  The burgers turned out great.  In fact, they were so good, I forgot to take pictures of them after they were made!

My husband also grilled some skewers for people who did not want a burger.

Chicken Sausage and Pineapple Skewers

Chicken Skewers / Corn / Veggie Skewers

Pretty much every time we host a BBQ, we stick out chips and dip.  It's boring I know but great for guests to munch on as they wait for the main dishes to finish cooking on the grill.

For appetizers and sides, we had a veggie tray, cheese tray, watermelon, and fruit.

And just for fun, I filled my Mason Jar Drink Dispenser from Pottery Barn with blue Powerade to match the theme.  The paper straws and tropical themed cups were from the Dollar Tree as well.

And no birthday party is complete without birthday cake!  My niece is a lucky gal because she got not one but two birthday cakes.  These amazing cakes are from 85C Bakery.  The top one is a Mango Mousse cake and the bottom one is a Taro cake.
