Plan 1.2 sandwiches per person unless it is all ladies who eat lightly.

Veggies & French Onion Dip 2ounces veggies per person, 1 cup dip per 5-6- see the veggie tray page
BLT Dip, Artichoke & Spinach Dip; 1 cup per 4-5 of each dip, 1 pound bread or chips per 10
Pigs in a Blanket-small ones, 2 per person

Fruit- Fruit tray for 25, add some if the numbers increase, see fruit tray page

Nuts I do 6 pounds per 100

Mac n Cheese- 1 pound dry pasta per 10, 1 quart sauce per pound

Thumbprint Cookies-2 per person?- probably 3, if the only one; but I would do small brownies and have 2 of each per person
Chocolate Covered Strawberries-2 per person? fine

Soda- 1/3 sugar free, 2 liters per 10
Sangria- see the recipe for high wire sangria, scale to your numbers
Water-1.5 bottles per person- OK

Thanks so much! I'm also having Chips & Salsa as an appetizer. And Cake for dessert. I am wondering do you think 1.2 Sandwiches and Mac n Cheese is enough? Or should I have more than 1 side dish?? And how much prepared Mac n Cheese?? I was going to order it from a restaurant.

THANK YOU!

Mac, you need a full quart per 4 persons. Consider adding 1 classic relish tray from the veggie tray page.
