Self-catering a party for 22 - how's my menu?

biondanonima | Sep 15, 2010 02:28 PM

I'm throwing an elopement party on a friend's roofdeck and doing the food myself (I know, insanity). The roof is equipped with a couple of large grills, and although we'll have plates and utensils there's not really a good table to seat everyone so I wanted to keep it mostly finger foods, albeit in enough quantity to make a meal of it. I also wanted things that could either be served at room temp or easily reheated on the grill. The desserts are sort of non-negotiable, as they are my husband's favorites! Here's what I'm thinking:

Chicken, beef and vegetable kebabs with flatbreads (I was going to do 10lbs of chicken and 7 of beef, just to be safe)
Stuffed mini peppers with mole and plantains (60pc)
Green olives in cheese pastry (80pc)
Prosciutto wrapped stuffed dates (80pc)
Mini roasted tomato, ricotta and pesto tartlets (one sheet tray)
Hummus and dip
Fruit and cheese
Chicken liver pate
Crackers, pita chips
key lime squares
carrot cake
german chocolate cake

Does this seem like enough food/enough variety? Thanks!
