How much food do I serve at my party?!

Caterers have a good experience in estimating how many persons can be served by as much food. But have you considered the guests' trips back to the table? If you have gone down to actually counting the pieces served per kind, make sure the favorites have an extra fifty percent, say, 50 plus 30 plus 40 can mean mean two trays of chicken. Put in some bowls of soup to keep their stomach fuller while they're eating the dry food.The cakes should be pre-sliced for at least 80 people. Add some 30-50 meatballs.They're the first to "vanish". The sweet cakes are OK they'll make the guests also feel full. But place them at the head of the table, together with the soup, so they'll attract the guests' attention immediately. Better have excess than run out while your guests still want more.
All I am going to say is...WOW! Find out how many infants there are. Say there is 20 infants, you will need 60 food plates/e.t.c. Try :] I think thats a lot...
