Now that you've set the theme and budget, it's time to talk FOOD. Here are some quick tips to keep in mind.
1) Select foods that will be appropriate for the type of party you are having.
For example: Finger Foods for a lunch time party.
2) Make a list PRIOR to going to the store of everything you will need. STICK to your list. This will prevent you from just picking up things and changing the menu while you're shopping.
3) If time permits, start shopping early. This will allow you time to clip coupons and check for sales.
