Need Help With First Birthday Party

We are planning a 1st birthday party for David. I can't believe he's going to be 1 in less than 3 months.
We are going to have approx 25-30 people. I am trying to make it as cheap as possible. I was wondering what we should do for food. Here are my two ideas. Get $10.00 pizza's either from Pizza Hut or Papa Johns. The thing is I would probably have to get at least 8 pizzas and that would be $80.00. I was thinking of asking people to donate like $5.00 to the cost but is it rude to put that on the invitation?
Secondly, I thought of asking everyone to bring a dish to share. However I would still have to provide a main dish. I am not sure if I should cook something or just buy. I really don't have any ideas for this one.
I am trying to find something that the kids can eat too. Most of the kids will be David's age or younger (as they are kids from his playdates). I am not sure what he would be eating at a year if it would still be baby food or table food so I can have something that he can eat.
Any advice would be appreciated.
