We were going to go with this:

Panzanella Salad – this has romaine lettuce, olives, tomatoes, onion, pepperchinis(sp), artichoke hearts, and a couple other things I can’t remember. It will have balsamic dressing.

Roasted Cornish Hens

Baby Back Ribs

Roasted Potatoes

Sliced Fresh Fruit – watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, grapes, pineapple, and strawberries

The portions for these are quite large. When we did our tasting, we ended up bringing home enough leftovers to have for dinner.

But now we are thinking about this because we get so much more for quite a bit less. It will be easier on our budget and I think it will be much nicer for our guests.

Appetizers

Butler Passed Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Seasonal Fresh Fruits and Berries

Cascading Vegetable Crudités Accompanied by Assorted Dips

Dinner

Pea Salad with Water Chestnuts & Bay Shrimp

Bow-tie Pasta

Traditional Caesar Salad

Fettuccini

Hearty Italian Bolognese

Traditional Alfredo Sauce

Pepper Rubbed French Roast Turkey

Slow-Roasted Prime Rib with Horseradish Sauce

Peel and Eat Shrimp Garnished with Mussels and Crab Legs

Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Tillamook Au Gratin Potatoes

Braised Petite Green Beans with Smoked Bacon

Assorted Fresh Baked Rolls Served with Butter

For Dessert

Wedding Cake – Chocolate Cake with Cookies and Cream Mousse/Lemon Cake with Marionberry Cream Cheese Mousse

Candy Bar – Chocolate Candy Sticks, Root Beer Candy Sticks, Milk Chocolate Covered Oreo Cookies, Milk Chocolate Pecan Caramel Turtles, Cherry Cola Salt Water Taffy, Sesame Seed Snaps, and Mary Jane’s Candy, Homemade Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies, Homemade Peanut Butter Cookies

We will also be offering a hosted bar with:

Root Beer, Coffee, Assorted Teas, Water, Sparking Cider, Sam Adams, Heineken, White Wine, Red Wine, and Champagne

Favors

I am also going to include truffles in the favors on the place settings and homemade Madagascar vanilla sugar and vanilla favors.

Then people get to start with a salad then choose from one of 3 entrees.  Chicken Wellington, Salmon with creme dill sauce or Ratatouille for my veggies coming.

It comes with a rice pilaf and veggies.

For dessert is wedding cake.  

It is simple yet tasty.

We’re having a ANtipasto bar: Big bowl of greens, roasted red pepper, olives, artichokes, marinated mushrooms, ham, prosciutto, salami,cheeses.Bread sticks

passed apps:shrimp cocktail in martini glasses, scallops wrapped in bacon, and chicken satay.

dinner will be a buffet: either chicken piccata or chicken with a cranberry ginger glaze.  A cheese lasagna, and something else.  I want prime rib or some sort of beef.  My dad wants ham, because its cheap and he’s paying for it ( I plan on winning this battle).  For sides roasted veggies and either a nice rice pilaf of roasted potatoes.

vegitable crudite (veggies and dip)

fruit and cheese and crackers

shrimp cocktail

 

Dinner: 

Asian station with:

kung pao chicken

pork potstickers

lettuce wraps (half chicken half veggie)

eggrolls (veggie)

lo mein (veggie)

 

Mexican station with:
