party for 25-30...should i be worried?

alltummy | Jul 30, 2007 06:18 PM

I am hosting a wedding rehearsal party for around 25-30 people. It's at 7pm - a casual, but festive buffet style dinner. (there are enough chairs for everyone- but dispersed throughout living room, den and patio- so food should be easy to eat) Up until now i have been totally relaxed about it- but many people now have expressed that it is too much for me to do alone. I am starting to wonder...more importantly, i was hoping to get input on my menu...

hot hors d'ouerves (purchased)
hummus dip (purchased)
pita (purchased)
cheese platter
vegetable tray with dip(purchased)
breads, crackers (purchased)

boccocini/tomato/basil skewers

chilled pea soup shooters

new potato salad
couscous salad
green salad

veggie lasagna
samosas (purchased)

Fruit kebabs

I have two full days to prepare. I plan on making the veggie lasagna, the potato salad, the trifle, the couscous salad and the soup in advance...as well as the fruit kebabs.
The lasagna, potato salad, couscous recipe and soup recipes are very simple...low labour and time. The fruits kebabs and boccocini skewers are more labour intensive, but i enjoy them... and i want some special elements as this is a wedding rehearsal party....
