Baby shower for 30 - food ideas

chocomel | Jan 5, 201512:58 PM     9

Hi all,

I'm planning a baby shower for around 25 - 30 people with a budget of max $10 per person. The party will be held in someone's house in Milpitas. I'm really at a lost of what to serve and in general not a throw-a-party type of person.

Does anyone have any party tray/catering ideas near Milpitas? I'm looking for recommendation about specific restaurants that's tried and true. I live in San Francisco, so also willing to pick something up from SF.

Options that I considered:
- Taco part (i read a thread somewhere that Taqueria Los Gollos in Concord can cater for $4 per person, is there a similar option near Milpitas)
- Maybe Mediterranean food?
- Open to get party trays of Asian food (maybe fresh spring rolls, vietnamese salad, chinese meats, etc)
- Whole foods for tea sandwiches and finger foods (i called in, this optioni seems expensive and not a lot of food)

I'm open to cooking/preparing the food as well although I have a small SF kitchen and still need to prep party decorations (again, not a party-thrower, so also at a lost here).

Thank you all in advance!
