Baby Shower
L. Outten
Hi, I am having a baby shower for my daughter on August 11,2010 There will be approx. 35 people there. My menu consists of Meatball sdws., meat tray (2 kinds of cheese,turkey,ham and RB), potato salad, macaroni salad, and possibly boneless chicken wings. I am having a fruit tray and a veggie tray. I need to know what sixe meat tray to purchase or would it be less expensive for me to do my own meat tray? How much potato and mac salad do I need (I figured 5-6 lbs.of ea.(1/4 to 1/2 cup per person). Am I correct? The fruit tray will consist of watermelon, honeydew, strawberries,pineapple and blue berries in the center. I would appreciate any help you can give me with this.

Thank you
Lisa Outten

This is what I would do:

Meatball sdws., 1 pound meatballs per 5
meat tray (2 kinds of cheese,turkey,ham and RB),
2-3 ounces cheese per person (2 if ladies .only); 2-3 ounces RB, 1 1/2 ounce each turkey and ham. Much cheaper to assemble your own.

1.2 rolls per person. See sandwich page for condiments.

potato salad, 8 pounds potatoes
macaroni salad, 2 pounds dry mac

boneless chicken wings- 1 pound per 4

Fruit tryas- see the fruit tray page
