gijanedoe:  Sounds casual and tasty. Is the hoagie dip pre-assembled? Some people might like certain meats more than others. Also, there is no meat in your spread that would suit someone that doesn’t eat pig products. I don’t know if that will be an issue for your guests.

It all sounds delicious, but I think as a guest I would miss having one big entree-like dish. These all seem like little snack foods.

I would replace the hoagie dip with sandwiches. It would be faster for people to take and feel more like a main dish.

I would add a main course. That hogie dip sounds weird.

Another “you absolutely need sandwiches” vote here. I would be looking around in confusion for the “main” item if I were in attendance.

gijanedoe:  Is this supposed to be finger foods and appetizers? It seems like the main dishes are missing- if that is the point, then I would at least add another thing to the hoagie dip as some people don’t like cold cuts- maybe like grilled chicken, etc… Or I would swap that out for assorted sandwiches/wraps.

Another vote for adding in some sandwiches/wraps 🙂 Although your menu sounds very tasty, it seems more like sides/snacks and I would be looking for a ‘main’ type of lunch item.

gijanedoe:  OP, are you going to serve a sandwich with this? Sounds like that is missing.

Doesn’t seem like enough for a noontime meal. It’s a good start but not filling enough. Add a sandwich or something similarly substantial. Fried chicken? Empanadas? Lots of options to make sure your guests get a good lunch.

I would replace the caesar salad with just a regular garden salad. You have a lot of creamy-based things, except for the fruit. I agree that you should offer a sandwich or some other kind of main course item, too.

I too don’t think it’s enough food.  I’m not sure what “hoagie dip” is – are they finger sandwiches?  Sounds like these are all appetizers.  I agree with the suggestion of replacing the caesar salad with a regular salad (maybe offer different dressings?) – could you add chicken to the salad to make it more filling?

If you’re serving “cupcakes and other sweet treats” for desert, I think you’re better off putting some of the cost for desert into the lunch menu.

gijanedoe:  These sound like all little appitizers and not a lunch… I would add sandwiches (lot of different sandwiches) for sure

gijanedoe:  I would add a protein that is not “red meat” A lot of people don’t eat red meat but want some protein. Maybe some chicken salad sandwhiches as half of the sandwich option? Also maybe a three bean salad for extra protein if there are vegetarians? And then maybe a place on invites to find out any other restrictions, for example if there was a pescetarian maye you could have one tuna sandwhich for them

I agree with the people here. You should add either a sandwich or some kind of meat and I would swap one or two things from your list and switch it to something that’s not creamy or heavy.
