appetizers for 50
hi ellen,
i am trying to plan a party for approx 50 people. i would like to have mini crabcakes, chicken skewers, roasted veggies, marinated cherry tomato and boccochinni on skewers, fruit salad, hummus with pita, seafood dip with tortillas and fresh fruit and have no idea how many skewers pp and crabcakes. the cocktail party is from 7:00 until 9:00 so i expect most will just pick. can you please help me?
Hi, Cheryl, this is an ambitious menu.

If the party is 7-9, unfortunately, many will not eat dinner before they come, so this is a little heavier than you might have anticipated

mini crabcakes, 2-3 per person
chicken skewers, 2 per person
roasted veggies, 3-4 ounces per person
marinated cherry tomato and boccochinni on skewers, 1 per person plus 20%
fruit salad, do fruit trays, see the fruit tray page- do 2 25 person or 1/2 the 100 person deluxe
hummus with pita, 1/4 cup per person plus 1 pita in 6 wedges
seafood dip with tortillas, I would do tortilla chips and crackers, 1/3 cup dip per person plus 1 1/2 ounce chips and 1 ounce crackers
fresh fruit
