Military Retirement Party Catering??

Laurenjo28 | Dec 2, 2011 02:27 PM

I have multiple questions here, so stay with me :)

My dad's retiring from 20+ years in the Army and the family is planning a surprise retirement party for him. For the menu, we've talked to a well-known caterer within our area. The estimated price she gave us was around 650 dollars. For the simple finger food we are asking for-chicken wings, fruit, dip-I was wondering if this was a standard charge for catering? Also, how hard do you guys believe it might be to self-cater the event? As I said earlier, we only want simple appetizer type food, and there will be, at the most, 80 people at the party. In the end, I am really looking for any information you guys might have. We ("The Party Planners") are completely new to this, so any guidance would be helpful! Thank you :)
