    It looks pretty good, there are several items that I would enjoy but I think you need to add more options/variety. I think you need to rethink this 🙂

    My biggest concern is the amount and kind of alcohol offered vs type of food. I think you need some breads or pastas etc… It sounds yummy, but for a lot of drinking… I’d be concerned for my guests…

    It sounds nice but I do agree that it seems like something of substance is missing…pasta station? Upon second thought, if it is clear to your guests that this is apps. and cocktails they may not be expecting substance. How long is your reception? Are the apps. heavy enough to serve as a meal if it’s 4 or so hours? Do you have heavy drinkers? Do you have many vegetarians? any vegan? It seems all of the hot food is meat heavy is why I ask. I would be happy to have veggies in ranch dip, swedish meatballs and sesame chicken!

    I think it looks great, however my Darling Husband is a vegetarian AND lactose intolerant. Now I don’t know if you have others with that combination, but I simply observed there’d be little for him to eat because, as another poster said, a) most of the hot food is meat and b) a lot of the veggie dishes are cheese-based. You could do a tofu-based meatball or add portobello mushroom kabobs or something like that.

    But in the end it depends on how many veggies/vegans you’re going to have. Don’t change the menu if it were just one person–it looks great otherwise. I just always come at it with Darling Husband on the brain!

    I agree with other bees…need maybe a penne vodka, rice pilaf, twice baked potato….get the idea?  missing a heavy starch/carb…otherwise great menu!!

    Everything sounds delicious, but I think I would add more options. Maybe do a bread table with lots of breads to choose from. You could also do pigs in a blanket (or fancy name – andouille sausage en croute) you could do mini quiche, mini crab cakes – I just think even with a limited bar people would still be wanting more. There are several things on your menu I wouldnt eat so I would feel as if I needed additional food!

    I love everything that’s on the menu, but I agree that I would probably still be hungry, even knowing that it wasn’t a meal. What if you had tiny sandwiches or something, the bread would definitely make a person feel more full? Even garlic bread maybe, Or if you could find a cute way of doing little servings of pasta.

    Other than that though, it sounds amazing.

    I think our menus are going to be a lot alike! Sounds good if you’re going for the cocktail hour portions! Yum!!

    I don’t eat meat and I think if you add rolls to your menu it’d be perfect.  I would ask however that you label what the items are- I have come to hate hors d’oeuvres because I can’t tell what I can eat!  I ended asking Fiance to eat a stuffed mushroom and tell me if there is meat in it for not.
