Hi Ellen, I am helping a friend with parent's 60th Anniversary drop in and was wondering if this will be enough for 100 guests. It will be held from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm on a Sunday. Chicken Puffs - 30lbs of chicken, 4 puffs per person. Shredded BBQ pork to be served with sliders - 30lbs pork & 100 slider rolls. Warm bacon ranch dip - 3 5 quart chargers & 10lbs chips. Cheese Balls - 3 5lb cheese balls and 12lb crackers. Lime sherbet punch - 10 gallons. We are also serving ice water. We are having fruit and veggie trays with this menu. Thank you so much for your help!

You may be over. People will be between lunch and dinner, and you seem to have more than enough for a full meal. Lets save you some money!

Chicken Puffs - 30lbs of chicken, 4 puffs per person.
30 pounds of chicken is 60 cups and it will make 120 cups of chicken salad. Unless the puffs are enormous, 1/2 cup per person is plenty,= 50 cups chicken salad= 25 cups chicken or about 12-13 pounds boneless raw

Shredded BBQ pork to be served with sliders - 30lbs pork & 100 slider rolls.
1 pound makes 12 slider rolls! You ony need about 10 pounds

Warm bacon ranch dip - 3 5 quart chargers & 10lbs chips. I only do 1 pin per pound or 5 quarts for 10 pounds chips

Cheese Balls - 3 5lb cheese balls and 12lb crackers. 12 pounds cheese enough, do have some cheese and some crackers without nuts or seeds in the mix for older teeth and stomachs

Lime sherbet punch - 10 gallons. OK, but do provide an interesting unsweetened tea or sugar free soda for the folks who can't have this. Many of the guest this age will have diabetes or another reason to watch sugar.

fruit and veggie trays Plan for about 75 poeple's worth of each. 1 1/2 the classic relish tray on the veggie tray page would be plenty

Suggest you have some coffee and decaf for the cake- people really like this- do the reception level coffee from the beverage planning page.
