Hoping to get some great ideas from all you great cooks out there. We're hosting a HS graduation reception at our house for about 150 people. It will be a come and go type reception. I plan to have the food indoors and have plenty of seating indoors with overflow to the patio area. Our menu plan is for pulled pork and brisket, baked beans, party potatoes (cheesy potatoes), an assortment of salads, veggie trays with dip, fruit platters with dip, cake, punch, tea, soda. Does anyone out there have any suggestions for perhaps better menu ideas. Need food that can be made in advance (at least a day or two). Also if anyone has any tried and true suggestions for a way to serve the food (placement for best flow, etc. in the room) or just any ideas that worked for you). Things you would have done differently???
I also need help with quantity of food for that many people.
Thanks so much!!
