Plannning for 150 not all will come im sure. at 5pm
Trying to get menu planned
Cocktail Hour Menu
Cheese- 4 different types 15 pounds
Meat tray-2-3 different types 15 pounds
Crackers Ritz 20pkgs about 9 pounds
lil smokies-15 pounds
Would like a punch but have recipes to try out. Im thinking about
12gallons for regular punch
12 gallons for alcoholic punch
This looks good, and I have a few suggestions.
Expect that about 85% of the invited guests will show. Only goes up if they are all family and all in town.
You need 3-4 serving lines for this many- or 2 double sided lines.
Skip one of the meat appetizers and add fruit trays (at least 1 tray for 100 from the fruit tray page). Increase crackers to at least 10 pounds or add several pounds of rye and wheat cocktail slices, tiny thin slices, great with fruit and cheese.
You could also move the meatballs to the dinner service to offer an alternative, and still have plenty for appetizers. If you do this,offer 4 pounds thin sliced provolone and a few shakers of Parmesan.
Turkey and dressing sandwiches-not quite sure on how much.
Buns for sandwiches-200-250- Allow 1 1/2 standard size or 2 smaller per person, but consider having part bread. About 16 pounds per 100
I would also like to have some pop there 15-20 2liter bottles - check the beverage planning page for help on amounts and flavors
Also, add dinner level coffee from the beverage page. People really like it with their cake.
Have a great party, and if this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation to help support this site.
