Help!! Cocktail Party/Open House next weekend Westport CT

millriver | Jan 17, 2010 07:55 AM

HELP!! I am planning an open house/ Cocktail/ dinner party for 24 friends next weekend and I am panicking about food. I want to order some meat- something that can be self-served by my guests. Don't want just the traditional spiral ham..want something like a pork loin or a roast beef..want to order locally- what do you suggest? Balducci's is a tad $$$, what about A&S, or the Pantry in Fairfield? Stew Leonards? I want it to be yummy and easy to serve and not to worry if its not hot as the evening progresses. Any suggestions for other dishes? I would also love some awesome hors d'oerves ..any tips? Trader Joe's?

Also is it alright to have disposable plates and high quality plastic utensils?

Thanks!!
