If you are doing a buffet, typically, it’s wise to have a pasta option (in case you have vegetarians or vegans!), and two options (either chicken, fish, beef, or pork), as well as the typical bread/rolls, salad, and one or two vegetables, i.e. green beans, carrots, potatoes.

There are a million different types of things you can choose as far as the meat/fish selections and the veggie/potato selections.

I hope this helps!

I can do that – we’re having 65 guests too! Right now I actually think our menu is TOO extensive; I will probably take a few things off. I don’t think we need as many options as I originally thought.  (It’s easy for me to get carried away when it comes to food!) But here’s what’s currently on the menu (before cutting anything):

Stationary Apps:

  • Local cheeses table

  • Mediterranean mezze table (grape leaves, hummus, etc.)

Passed Apps

  • mushroom/gruyere phyllo triangles
  • bacon wrapped scallops (caught locally that morning)
  • Asian pear, fig jam, and romano crostini
  • Edamame puree in a cucumber cup topped with a thai garlic chili sauce


  • rosemary-crusted beef tenderloin
  • beggar’s purse pasta filled with portobello mushrooms
  • tilapia fish with tomato-lime-cilantro beurre blanc


  • Green bean and cherry tomato salad


  • Wedding cake (chocolate!)
  • Strawberry rhubarb pie
  • blueberry lattice tart
