Annette, 4 appetizers for a 5 hour party is not a large enough selection. In addition you are looking at 5-6 people to staff, more if it is passed appetizers rather than table.

Also, if it is 5 hours and goes over a normal mealtime, that almost doubles the amount of food needed. Can you please write me the type of event, when it actually starts and the approximate age mix of the crowd, so I can give you better advice?
