Definelty do a veggie tray of some sort. This way you will have some finger foods for people that just want a little snack. Are you having cake? If not, i would suggest a dessert of some sort.

I dont think this is enough…. im not sure if you have any room in your budget to add more though but i think you definately need more substantial food

A baked potato bar is an extra cheap, super easy and filling way to satisfy the masses, you can keep them warm in a roaster and all you need is butter, sour cream, chives, bacon bits and cheese…crowd please for sure and easy on the $$$

@Nona99:  That’s a great idea! I do this for my daughter’s family birthday party every year, and it’s  big hit.

Plus it kind of jives with our OP’s soup/salad menu….

Oh, and bread bowls are a nice filler too…I think you can get them baked for like 49 cents each, that’s a nice addition.

Are you/your family making all the food? $500 should be plenty.

I think you need some time of meat entree – there is no protein here. Unless I missed something?

I would do definitely do something additional that’s starchy like the mashed potato bar, suggested and add a tray of some sort of meat dish – like chicken marsala or something like that?

Or – ditch the soups and do trays of baked pastas – that’s usually really cost effectvie

Yeah, I think there needs to be something more substancial on there, as well. Maybe small sandwiches? Or the baked potatoes?

Do some grilled cheeses! That would be more filling and would go with the soup and salad thing.

If not, I feel like this doesn’t look like enough filling food, especially if you are having an open bar.
