Interesting and Exciting Buffet Ideas

Hello food.....
Jess's Messes Fabulous Feast

I was asked to create a Jess's Messes buffet for my mum's 60th birthday party (whoops probably shouldn't mention age there), and I was thinking of ideas, googled for some interesting suggestions and everything was so standard and boring. So, I would like to share the ideas I came up with for other people looking for exciting ideas in the future.

I will of course do my best to upload the recipes in the next few week, but here are just the images to get your tastebuds tingling. :)

  1. Hi Jess.

    My lucky mother was there to sample the feast and she said it was absolutely amazing, she went on about it for an hour, I had to shut her up in the end :)
    Well done!
