We are doing a heavy hors d’oeuvres reception.
We’ll have crab cakes, sesame chicken satays, chicken salad in mini phyllo tart shells, and assorted finger sandwhiches and canapes during cocktail hour. Then for “dinner” we have a Cheese Display, a Fruit Display, Spinach Artichoke heart dip with pita bread and tortilla chips, and peel and eat shrimp.
This is where I need your help PLEASE! We also have a carving station. We need to choose either Chef Carved Angus Beef or Herb Encrusted Pork Loin (both served with rolls)
We also need to pick two from the following…
Ham biscuits, assorted mini quesadillas, BBQ Pork Sliders, Spanikopita, Chicken Spring Rolls, Assorted Stuffed Mushroom Caps.
Is this enough variety? Do you think people will still be hungry? We also have the option of adding something else…Please let me know your thoughts if you don’t mind!!

I like the carving station because this would allow people to get enough meat. People love meat @ weddings.
Can you switch the crab cakes to the reception instead of just @ the cocktail hours. I always try to think of what will people eath the most. Sliders, quesadillas, crab cakes, and chicken sandwiches or fingers.
Hope this helps:)

Very similar to my list! I think it has enough to make people full, I’d just be worried about enough to eat for vegetarians??

@squeak35: Thanks! I was actually thinking of doing that, may have to revisit that idea!
@Wannabe-diy-bride: We don’t have any vegetarians coming so thankfully thats not a worry.

If I still ate meat I would choose the Herb Encrusted Pork Loin, Ham biscuits and spanakopita

Even though we don’t have any vegetarians coming, should I still try to pick another veggie option? The quesadillas and mushroom caps come with a variety of fillings including vegetarian options, and while I LOVE Spanakopita

Speaking from the perspective of someone who doesn’t eat pork I would suggest you serve the beef at the carving station if you are going to pick the other ham options. Or if you decided to do the pork at the carving station than I would skip the ham options for the other two. I know a lot fo people who don’t eat pork either for religious reasons or others and I think sometimes people who eat all meat forget this. It’s hard to fail with chicken options too as I think poultry is a very common meat in many house holds 🙂
Sorry forgot to say what I picked: I voted for the beef at the carving station and then the mushroom caps and chicken spring rolls 🙂

i’m biased since i’m vegetarian, but i def think having more veggie options is the safe way to go, even if you don’t think you have vegetarian guests. meat-eaters can eat veggies too, but not vice versa 😉

I would have more veggie options – personally, I’m not a vegetarian, but I’m not a huge meat eater either. What about some kind of pasta station? I think that would be a huge hit!
