Hors D’oeuvres for 150


Yes, I am in the middle of making hors d’oeuvres for 150 people. I volunteered for this. What was I thinking? We are trying to do it inexpensively about $500 for everything including punch, sparkling juice, napkins, cups and trays. The venue is providing plates, tables, and flat ware.  This means we are doing quite a bit of the work ourselves rather than getting everything pre-cut or expensive ingredients.

I plan on taking lots of pictures tonight and let you know how this all turned out. We are serving vegetable trays with dip, fruit platters, hummus with pretzel crisps, antipasti skewers with balsamic reduction, crackers, mixed nuts, cream puffs, eclairs, and sponsors are providing pizzas, cupcakes, and chips and salsa.

Wish me well. I am nervous!

    Whoa ! ! Good luck ! !

    My mom was. a caterer in the Philipines, and I witnessed how busy it was at home, with 4 other helpers running around the house. ( My mom cooks and prepares everything at home ) I remember how chaotic it was when she catered for 300 people, brunch, lunch , and dinner. It was a conference of one political party for 3 days.

        It was a home-based catering business and it started small. ( like for 50 people ) My mother’s tip: make sure you have exact measurements written down . It’s for consistency in taste.
