The Buffet Table Luncheon Party
The buffet table luncheon party is similar to the morning brunch, but is probably more popular with the men. When I do them, I keep them simple, and they look like more trouble than they are!
You can visit a local restaurant for their buffet, or you can create a great buffet luncheon at home.
The invitations depend on whether the table will be set just before a big football game on TV or whether the guys are going to head out for a round of golf, or whatever the guest of honor is planning on doing that afternoon. The invitations can reflect that. Get invitations (or ideas) at eInvite or FineStationery.
Ditto for the decorations. The decorations can include darker colors and lots of streamers. Get some specific ideas on the Decoration Ideas page, and get everything you need at discount prices at this excellent party supply resource.
The food would be set up so that everyone would help themselves and it could include: cold cuts, bread, mayo/mustard, cheese (to make sandwiches), chips, veggies (raw and cooked), any type of casserole, meat balls, potatoes, and pretty much anything the birthday person likes. You can do a buffet theme too, like Mexican food (have tacos, enchiladas, beans, rice, etc.) or Chinese (rice, soup, egg rolls, and several entrees).

birthday person doesn't have additional plans, games
can include board or card games, or even watching a movie while or after
everyone eats. If you want to play music, you can get some ideas
for great music here.
