Cooking for 30 Help!

Hi everyone,

I have been enlisted to "cater" a film set for my friend and have some question re: servings.
Below are what I am planning to make, but I was curious about how much to batch up the recipes to serve 30 people, keeping in mind that I am preparing a variety of dishes for people to sample, so one standard "serving" as may be described in a recipe, probably does not apply here as people will have smaller portions of more dishes. So, lets say the recipe estimates 10 servings (just to be simple), do I make 1 recipe? 2 recipes? 3 recipes?
Your thoughts would be great.

Baked Mac and cheese
Corn, avocado salad
Apple, Cabbage Slaw
Sweet Potato Salad
Baked Beans
Pulled BBQ Chicken Sliders

Peach Cobbler/Crisp
Southern Banana Pudding
Melon Salad with Mint

Thanks in advance!
