What size bowls are appropriate to use on the buffet table for a rice dish, bean salad dish, macaroni dish and lettuce (for a salad)? (We will have other items too). We will have 300 people with 2 lines of tables with people going down both sides and will have people going back and forth replacing empty dishes on the table with new "full" dishes. I need to buy bowl for these items, some to have on the table and some ready to go on the table as needed. Thanks

approximately 8 quart containers for the hot food, can go 10-12 for salads, etc; set bowls in larger bowls of ice if they need to stay cold.

You don't have enough serving lines; you need at least 2 sets of double lines minimum for this many people, and 3 would be better.

I'll have 4 serving lines. As you said, 2 sets of double lines (4 lines total). Thanks for the information.
