I need a caterer to help me!?!

Question: I need a caterer to help me!!?
We're having a potluck banquet for about 200 people!. I have to put the sign-up form on our website in a week and the caterer that is helping us is in her busy season and hasn't had time to look over the list!. I have no idea how much of each thing to ask for!. Clearly if we have 100 couples there, with each bringing one dish, the list needs to be larger!. It's a Christmas Dinner (yeah, it's Christmas in July) and we're providing the turkey!.

Here's a mockup list that I've made so far: http://www!.luckypotluck!.com/potluck/AMad!.!.!.

Anybody wish to give tips on what I need to put on there!? Thanks in advance!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You have 5 each of the pans of sweet potatoes & stuffing, so each pan would need to feed 40 people! You might need those people to bring 2 pans each:)!.!.!.!.!.!.

You have 3 large containers of cranberry sauce - I hope you realize that these people are just going to bring a can of it! !.!.!. Since you only have 3 pies (for 200 people), why not have 6 people bring pies PLUS a can of cranberry sauce!? !.!.!.!. also, you only have 3 people bringing "other dessert"!.!.!.!.!. Those people would each need to bring TWO cakes, or 1 very large platter of cookies!.!.!.!.!.

Sounds fun!Www@FoodAQ@Com

i would ask for some sort of vegetables, (like a veggie tray)
three of them would be good for 100 people

and you probably need 4 gallons of each tea instead of 3

anyother questions just email meWww@FoodAQ@Com

You need a salad!. A fancy one if it is to be Christmas in July!. One with Baby Spinach, sliced Oranges and Sugared Pecans with a Maple Orange Dressing!.
You need a Green Vegetable too: Green Beans Almondine, or Creamed Peas and Onions
Mashed Potatoes
Cranberry Sauce
Rolls and Butter
Mashed Rutabaga
Pumpkin Pie
Pecan Pie
Apple Pie
Mince Pie
Fruit cake
Christmas Cookies
Ditch the Diet soda - it is loaded with Aspartamine which is a deadly poison and yes the FDA got had politically on that one and we all get to suffer because of it!.
In fact ditch all of the soda and provide a good punch instead one made with Cranberry Juice, Raspberry Ginger Ale, Grape Juice, Frozen Lemon Aid and Frozen Lime Aid!.
Coffee Tea
Have funWww@FoodAQ@Com
