Hosting a Dinner Party on a Budget

Rachael5000 | Sep 11, 2012 03:49 PM

I am hosting a Beginning of Fall Dinner Party the end of the month and want to make is somewhat fancy but also don't want to spend a huge amount of money. We have decided to do the apps and entree and have the guests bring a side or dessert, but I still want to get the WOW affect from the guests. Can you help me with some awesome recipes/menus that won't kill my wallet. Some ideas I have are:

Baked Brie
Zuchinni Carpaccio
Antipasti platter

Gnocchi w/Mushroom Ragu
Roast Chicken w/Root Veggies

I am a little bored by the entrees and this the apps are over budget, HELP!
