@ReginaH: We are also doing a heavy hors d’ ouvres reception. Your menu looks super yummy and I think it would be a lot of fun.

I think it is perfect! Love the sushi! I think it is really well-rounded and will definately keep everyone well fed!

Your menu looks yum! Two things you might want to consider though:

1 – I don’t know what your guests’ preferences consist of, but I would look at narrowing the scope of options. While everything looks good individually, some of it is weird together.. for example, I’m not sure how i’d feel about pairing my sushi with quesadillas and waffles.

2 – Do you have any vegetarian friends? Except for the Mexican food (which is kind of borderline/won’t work for vegans), you don’t seem to have any veggie dinner options. If so, an easy and cheap option would be to add in some kind of a vegetarian pasta.

Just watch out about the numbers of how much you order. Remember that people will probably take more than expected and hor’doerves go quickly. It is easy to be in the moment when they ask if you would like to order more food because you want them to have food. I have experienced this for conferences that i have planned. The numbers add up fast. 

I think you have a great variety!

Sounds Yummy! The only thing is if anyone is going to be vegan there choices are limited…

I love everything you have on the menu.  With the additions I’d prefer the pasta with vodka cream sauce.  Because I like everything though, I do agree to keep in mind how much food you’re ordering and how that’s affecting the budget.
