All OK
turkey deli-meat (?lbs.) on cocktail buns, you do not need this- I would skip it! or else the chicken or the meatballs

veg.trays: 4 lbs. (6) carrots, 4 pts cherry tomatoes, celery 9 heads (8?), 4 lbs cauliflower, 3 lbs broccoli, 2 qts Ranch dip

marinated vegetable salad (? quantity), I would sub a fresh fruit tray

assorted chips, 1 pound per 12; 1 cup dip per 5

full sheet cake, only 50-60 servings

fruit salsa (? quantity)with sweet tortilla chips made from flour tortillas. 1 cup per 4, 1 6 inch or 1/2 8 inch tortilla per person

Thank you for your prompt reply. Do you have a recipe for brown gravy that would be good on the meatballs?

Get real consomme or beef broth, water just doesn't make it. Cornstarch will crack and separate if reheated.
