I would also consider looking into local schools that offer cuilinary classes: maybe you can have students prepare the food at a fraction of the cost.
I just want you to enjoy your day and not be a short order cook!!! Best wishes!

cb93 : i think your compromise of catered lunch but self-catered dessert bar makes a lot of sense, for 60 people.
I don’t think lunch catering is that expensive, anyway. And some caterers are pretty bare-bones: i.e. no bussing, no serving, etc.. they just put out the food. Catering like that isn’t much more expensive than DIY, tbh.. a lot of what you’re paying iwth the caterer is for the servers. I know: I had to hire my caterer and servers seperately: I paid more for the servers than the food.

Also – we re having a lunch buffet in two weeks: 48 people, the food bill will be about $800. Pulled pork, mac and cheese, two salads, a fruit tray, a veggie tray, and brownies. Our place charges for 25 or 50 people, not per person. Lemonade, coffee and water. No drinking (sorry, we are dull)
A friend is buying me the Norweigan Ring cake as another dessert so no cost there!
Best wishes, bee!
