I think its fine. You could look up some retro finger foods and have those as well like those prune wrapped bacon things (i think) there are alot of neew twists on these foods around at the moment

I think your idea is great. Cheap and filling is very do able.
I would skip the chicken kebabs though as they are fairly expensive.
I would just do sausages and rissoles with bbq onion with buns and bread. like a big sausage sizzle.

and for snacks i would do a few cheese/cabanossi/cracker and dip platters or even cheaper would be CC's and salsa and ritz and dip and skip the cabanossi/cheese.
have a great night

aaahhh, all the 69 babies coming out of the woodwork now..lol My DH is also 40 this year..yikes!!
I think you have it sorted, you know , people are happy with nibblies while they have a few drinks, and the BBQ is exactly what everyone will love, by the time they have all had a few drinks, there is nothing better than a sausage with onion on bread..mm mmm, this pleases everyone i think, I would maybe cut up some chicken fillets into strips and marinade them overnite with honey soy sauce and a bit of sweet chilli sauce and throw them on the barbie as well, easy and delicious.. i am stumped as what to do for my DH birthday.!! its in november so a few months to think about it yet..
thx ladies makes me feel happier,my hubby works away alot so know will be all up to me to organise so wanted make simple as possible.and its only 3 mths away cant wait though already have a really cool hippie outfit jst gotta get one for hubby 6yrold son an 3yr old daughter cant wait dress her up.jst as well my hubby a great drawer will hit him up to do my groovy pictures before he flys out nxt monday .any more ideas love to hear them .ok take care shell.
