@bestbuddies:  I agree.

Veggies and dip would be good and/or maybe a real salad with lettuce and the option to put some protein on it (like grilled chicken breast) if people don’t like sandwiches?

Since it’s a lunch reception I think you have a good start. I would definetly add a regular salad in there as well though.

@KatNYC2011:  agreed with what she said.

I know not everyone likes sandwiches and pasta salad, so I think having more (cheap) options like salad and veggies and dip will ensure that guests don’t go hungry

Maybe have a fruit tray with strawberries, fresh pineapple, orange slices and such?

I’d say also get a cheese tray/deli meats/cheeseball with crackers and/or a few trays of squares/two-bite brownies. Plus fruit. Because not everybody wants to eat a sandwich.

Deviled eggs would be a yummy addition!  I like them with grainy mustard and dill.

Some little pastries, tarts and or quiches could go down well. If you get ready-rolled fylo pastry, you can make a whole variety of simple fillings for them and all the need is bakingi n the oven.  A few ideas are:

Caramelised Onion and Goats cheese

Tomato and Mozzarella

Spinach and Gruyere

Tomato, olives and oregano

Ricotta, pea and Salmon

@butterfli_beauty:  you may want a little more variety.  potato salad, grilled veggies, veggies & dip, lettuce salads (greek, caesar, toss), dips (hummus, roasted red pepper, artichoke)

i like the idea of having a build your own sandwich buffet with a variety of meats, cheeses, toppings and condiments (this can be more expensive)
