My grandson (5) recently had a "bug" birthday party. My DIL found some great ideas on pinterest for small finger food treats. The children and adults both loved the treats.

For my Dtrs shower we did a chocolate fountain. Her theme was more jungle but it might work. Bears eat berries. We had bananas teddy grahams, even teething biscuits.

I have done cupcakes in flat bottom ice cream cones. You can ice them then let everyone choose their own topping (mixture of nuts and berries). They can eat the whole thing. You make up the batter as per usual and fill the cone up middle of the top part of the cone. You may have to scrape the bottom seam (just use your fingernail or spoon edge on the outside of the cone to level it out. If they run over no problem, looks like icing. Best thing is you don't have to use a muffin tin to keep them upright. The weight of the batter will keep from tipping over. Bake according to directions on cake mix box.

We just attended a wedding shower last wk,where DD helped with the dessert table.One thing that was popular was her pumpkin dip,very light & airy with vanilla wafers & ginger snap cookies.Candied nuts are also popular.

I went to a baby shower that had cake balls made with donut holes. They stuck a straw in the donut and dipped it in melted chocolate. First take Toosie rolls, warm them a little, roll them flat and cut out little triangles for ears. Use tiny M&M'S for the eyes and red hearts for noses. Dip the donuts in the chocolate and stick on the ears, eyes and noses.

How about some pecan tassies made in a mini muffin tin? When I make them, since you don't need the whole block of cream cheese for the dough I make the rest of it into a cheesecake filling and make some of the tassies cheesecake and the rest with a nut filling.
