Birthday Party for 50 people
We are having a birthday party for our 2 daughters the end of November. We have 50 people attending 14 of them are under 10 years old. We are only serving snacks, cupcakes and icecream. I was wondering how much cheese, crackers and pepperoni we would need. And we would also like to serve fruit, but not sure what fruits would be best served in November and the quanity...
If you have just 1 flavor of cupcakes, get about 55- if 2, about 30 each.

3 pounds crackers
8 pounds cheeses and spreads
3 1/2 pounds thin sliced pepperoni
1/2 the deluxe fruit tray for 100 would be plenty- with the kids, even 1/3 would be OK- sub what is available for anything out of season. Kids really like caramel dip with apple slices.
