Ellen, I am going to be helping a couple out with a housewarming event. The following is the menu we will be preparing. Can you tell me if this will be enough food for 75 confirmed guest. The event will be at 5:00 p.m.

Marinated Teriyaki Chicken strips on skewers (50 lbs of chicken strips)

Benedictine Cucumber Sandwiches (Small round sandwiches) 4 to 5 per person

Chicken salad puffs 5 to 6 per person

3 16 inch round vegetable trays with dip

3 large cheese balls served with crackers

mini cherry cheese cake 4 to 5 per person

6 to 8 gallons lemonade

They are also going to have a bartender with a bar.

Thanks you for your help!

Too much food for 75 people...

Marinated Teriyaki Chicken strips on skewers (50 lbs of chicken strips)
35 max

Benedictine Cucumber Sandwiches (Small round sandwiches) 4 to 5 per person
3 per max, many don't eat cukes

Chicken salad puffs 5 to 6 per person- 3 per person

3 16 inch round vegetable trays with dip- OK, but you might consider 1 tray and one classic relish tray from the veggie tray page- more interesting

3 large cheese balls served with crackers- need about 10-12 pounds with about 5 pounds crackers

mini cherry cheese cake 4 to 5 per person-3 plenty, could add 2 small brownies per person, there is always room for chocolate

6 to 8 gallons lemonade- OK, some left

I would definitely add a fruit tray, about 2/3 the deluxe tray for 100 at the bottom of the fruit tray section would be good.

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a dime or quarter per guest, to support this site.
