Cook Talk

Baby Shower 75 guest to attend
having a baby shower with about 75 people in attendance. The menu is as follows:
deviled eggs
finger sandwiches
swedish meatballs in bar-b-que sauce
shrimp fettucine
green salad
how much should I purchase to feed this amount of people. The food items will be purchased already prepared.
Hi, Toni,

Basically, you have some nice appetizers and a fettucine lunch. 75 people.nThis is what I would do.

deviled eggs- about 100 pieces
finger sandwiches- 3 pieces per person
swedish meatballs in bar-b-que sauce- 1 pound per 5
How about adding fruit trays for 50? Pretty and a nice balance.

shrimp fettucine- 4 full pans (a pan serves 16-20)
green salad- 2 full pans (a pan serves 30-40 for side salad serving)

rolls- bread sticks would be a nice change with this, 1 pound per 10. If rolls, 2 1/2 pounds butter.

Add dinner level coffee and iced tea, see the beverage planning page.

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