Have you had the tea sandwiches?  Good ones are amazing…but not so good ones are just…forgettable.

Hmm, it does sound a bit basic but delicious. What kind of tea sandwiches will there be, do you know? Can you add something a bit glitzier than the Swedish meatball? What about elegant sliders, chicken satay, summer rolls, Indian samosa/pakora, a soup or gazpacho shooter, something with a bit more heft? I do like the amount of fruit and cheese, though!

Is this a lunchtime reception? Because if it’s dinner, I’d be very hungry afterwards.

Yummy! I really like your menu; love the quiche tartlets; i would just make sure not all the quiches have meat in them and the same for the tea sandwiches.

 

Otherwise, it sure all looks delicious, nice and beautiful for your reception. Hiring waiters is a good idea. I just think it would add so much elegance to the event and make people feel special instead of having the guests go to a table to serve themselves.

 

P.S. I agree. I would delete the meatballs from the menu entirely; probably would add some chicken stuffed mushrooms.

You might want to beef up the overall offerings if your reception is covering the lunchtime hour and you want your guests to stay beyond a half hour or hour. For example, you could add sliced meats and antipasto to the cheese display.

I’d also add two more options to the passed selections—shrimp cocktail is a bug crowd pleaser. What about something with chicken? I love chicken satay, for example. 

The other selections sound tasty but a bit heavy on the dairy.

@ISIS639:  Honestly I’d only eat 1 or 2 things and leave hungry and annoyed.

@ISIS639:  Well you asked for opinions, I gave mine to you. I don’t have any suggestions that would fit in with the direction you want to go so i just gave my opinion instead. Sorry my reply was not to your liking.
