Party for 20 only have $200. budget...ideas?

momof3 | Jun 4, 2007 06:02 AM

I am having a party for about 20 women this weekend. My budget is only $10. per head for food. The party is from 7-11 so I would like to have apps, something resembling dinner, and dessert. The beverages have their own budget, so I don't have to think that into the equation.
Things I was thinking so far...

mini crab cakes

Main course.
~A couple of quiches, one mushroom, leek, and cheese (veg) and the other like a lorraine style.
~Steak wraps
~Huge green salad with chicken breast slices in a vinagrette or "asian style" with snap peas and sesame dressing.
~Pasta primavera (served either warm or cold)

Fruit plates
Cake bites

Any feedback plus more ideas are very much appreciated.
