Dishing out exotic party food at a short notice is not possible. What you need are some easy-to-make food items that can be whipped up in a matter of few minutes.
The type of occasion and the number of guests expected, are a couple of things that you should take into consideration while selecting some finger foods for a party. The party food items for your kids' birthday party are quite different from that of a casual get-together of close family friends.
For Kids

Deciding on party food for kids, is both easy as well as difficult. Easy because kids seldom care about food. Most of their time at a party is spent in running around and playing party games.
The decision making task is not-so-easy because they are unbelievably fussy about food. Therefore, it is better to stick to tried and tested food items such as:
Popcorn
Snacks: Popcorn
Kids love popcorn. In selecting popcorn, you also have the option (and the joy) of experimenting a little bit by making different varieties of flavored popcorn such as regular, cheese, caramel, tomato, etc.
Pizza
Italian Pizza
This is a sure shot hit with kids and adults. Add lots of cheese and colorful pizza toppings to make it look all the more inviting. When it comes to kids, how a dish looks is more important than how it tastes. You can have vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
Sandwiches
Grilled Sandwich Sliced In Half
The regular snack that children love and to which you can add lots of variety as well. Jam, egg, cheese, chicken, ham, tuna fish, and peanut butter sandwiches. Serving them in a cute Dennis the Menace plate will fetch you brownie points from the children.
Hotdogs

If you own a barbecue grill, consider making some lip smacking hotdogs. Kids love them and there's a good chance that, that is all you will need to cook the entire evening. You can serve them with mustard sauce and barbecue sauce combination.
