1) I think it’s a good spread of appetizers, no need to add any extra


2) I would cut the shrimps. While I love shrimps, it’s August and outdoors – last thing you want is guests getting food poisoned


3) The two first, the third sound like it could be a little messy


4) Will you make the meatballs yourself of get them from IKEA? I really prefer the homemade version (I’m Swedish), but if you want the guest to be able to eat them with toothpicks, you might want to consider buying them (the bought ones are firmer). Also, consider getting some lingonberry jam to serve with them.

I don’t know what a hot brown is, but anything with mornay sauce is delicious.

I don’t think you have to worry about the shrimp if a) they’re cooked and chilled and b) they’re kept on a “hold-cold” station

I think the teriyaki beef skewers are overpriced; they’ll be made with super-cheap cuts.

Just right I think.

I think it’s the right amount and plan for 6-8 bites/hour. So for a 1.5 hour event 9-12 bites per person.

  The only thing I would cut is the cheesy dip, and only for messy factor, but it’s so good and soooo easy to make.   I’d keep the shrimp, that’s an easy dish and shrimp will not sit around for long, people scarff those down.  I agree about the Skewers are really over priced, I’d probably drop them.  They are always really tough anyway.


Wow you have a great variety.

Sounds perfect to me!

If it’s not too complicated, here’s another suggestion: offer the meatballs with 3 different sauces: Swedish-style, marinara, or barbecue.

I like Swedish meatballs, but I LOVE beer (barbecue sauce made with beer) balls!
