Decorating the cake can be difficult if you have not done it before. It can be worth watching a video online of someone demonstrating it, to help you. You will also need to decide whether you want to pipe on icing, buttercream or work with fondant. There are advantages and disadvantages with working with each, so find out about them.

Some people would choose to make an entirely vegetarian menu if they have some vegetarians eating with them, but often meat eaters would prefer to be given some meat and so it could be better to do both options if you have the time. It is always nice to have something for everyone.

You could choose to just serve sweet options, such as cake and biscuits and these are normally vegetarian anyway and the meat eaters would not know any difference then.

It is worth noting that a lot of alcohol is not vegetarian and so you will need to be careful in what you buy. Vegetarian wine is labelled as so and you should be able to find out all the information you need about various drink on the bottles or on their websites.
