I am having a party for 30-35 people. It's a party to celebrate my 24 yr old son who's moving. So many of the guests will be his age, mixed in with a few family and friends.
I plan to do the apps myself, mostly easy stuff like fruit, cheese & crackers, fresh guacamole, and buffalo chicken tenders.
But I can't see myself doing much more than that due to time and a recent sprained ankle. So here's my question.
If I get the food catered locally and pick it up how should I keep it warm, and how should I serve it? They'll put it in those aluminum trays and some people will put those right out on the table. I don't think I need steaming trays, and possibly the broccoli chicken penne would transfer to a nice serving dish, but the lobster mac n cheese probably would not. Can I serve the lobster mac n cheese in the aluminum tray they give it to me in, or would that look really tacky?
Any other suggestions for making this easier on myself?
