The other items "served" were: fork, spoon, napkin, toothpick, water, punch, stuffed jalapeno peppers, wrap slices, roasted root vegetables, stuffed Italian shells, garlic bread, jello salad, and a marshmallow pop that looked like an eyeball.
Parties like this one take a great deal of prep time, and it works best for the hostess if all of the food will survive a few extra minutes in the oven and doesn't need constant attention at the end of its cooking cycle. Setting out the correct number of silverware pieces and glasses helps speed the serving along as well. Items are removed at the end of each course (so don't try to order your fork earlier thinking you'll have it through the whole meal) - though this time around I gave each guest a take home box for lunch the next day.

It's always part of the fun to watch each guest try to decide how what they ordered matches what appears on the plate!

If you like to cook, are feeling creative with names, or have a group of friends that aren't afraid to eat with fingers, I'd recommend giving this type of dinner party a try!
