All Points Bulliten – Policy Party – Part 3 – Food

The kids and I always have a bunch of fun coming up with the food names for our parties. We typically have the same thing – fruit, veggies, olives, cheese, sausage, chips – it’s just what you call it that makes it more fun.

In fact, when N and I were discussing the food selection for the party I started listing off the various appetizers. When I got to olives it went like this:

N: How will the olives be served?

Me: In a bowl,  just like always.

N: No, Mom. How will they be?

Me: (very confused) They will be olives in a bowl.

N: But, Mom, the food always IS something. What will the olives be?

Me: (Finally understanding) Ahhhh! Ball and chains!

Such a proud Mom moment! Grin. So lets get to it, shall we?


  • Stolen Gold – Cheese cubes
  • Police Badges – Sunmer sausage
  • Ball and Chains – Black olives
  • Hand Cuffs – Funyuns
  • Cop Corn – Pop corn

  • Greenback and Dip – Celery, Green peppers, broccoli, cucumber and dip

When I ordered new water bottles for the mini-steams they came in these perfect sized boxes to use as decoration on the appetizer table. N thought that we should have a police station and a jail. He painted both boxes and I cut out the jail bars.
