Hi - Menu for my Mother's 90th Birthday Reception consist of:
Vegetable Beef Soup
Potato Soup w/Toppings (Bacon, Cheese, Scallions)
Cheese Slices w/Variety Crackers
Chicken Salad Crossiants
Spinach Dip w/chips
to serve 100 people. Could you tell me how much food of each item I should prepare? Thanks!
What a happy occasion!
This is somewhat affected by whether the guests are all ages or mostly near her age. I am estimating for all ages at a meal time, reduce 10% if it is mostly her age, and 10% if it is not at a meal time.
Vegetable Beef Soup-3 gallons
Cheese Slices w/Variety Crackers- 12 pounds cheese, 6 crackers, some left
Chicken Salad Croissants- use th reception level from the sandwich page, and do 2 mini croissants, not 1 large
Spinach Dip w/chips- 8 pounds chips, 6 quarts dip
Pasta Salad 5 pounds dry pasta plus add-ins
Fruit- use the fruit tray page
Cake/Ice Cream- full sheet cuts 50 servings- maybe a 2 layer? 4 gallons per 100
Punch- 8 gallons
If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a dime per person, to support this site. Thanks.
