Wedding reception
Helping with a reception with 200 guests, which is mainly being catered by an authentic Indian resturaunt. I have been assigned to do a crackers and cheese, and fruits table. Here are my thoughts so far:

1 ounce of cheese per person
4 crackers pp

Watermelon x 2
Cantaloupe x 5
Strawberries x 7 lbs
Blueberries x 4 pints
Raspberries x 3 pints
Oranges x 10
Grapes x 7 lbs
Pineapples x 7 lbs

Fruit Dip to accompant

As well as 10 lbs apples with caramel cream cheese dip

Will I have plenty?

No, you will find this is all gone rather quickly. I usually allow 16 pounds of cheese and 6-8 pounds cracker per 100.

Check out the fruit tray page deluxe tray for 100 or pineapple fruit tray for 25 for amounts; you would do 1 1/2 or 6 respectively, because of the apples.
