Help! I'm having a party for 40!

lattelover | Feb 6, 2014 03:30 PM

I 'have never had a party this big, and I am daunted by the quantities of food needed. I plan to feature a spiralcut ham, with biscuits and condiments (mayo, different mustards, pickle assortment), broccoli salad (from Sweet Tomatoes), and cake. I am OK getting the quantities of these and the drinks. What else do I need? I am thinking of an entree for those who do not eat/like ham, maybe a chicken and pasta salad? If I do that, can I decrease the amt of ham? Do I need a green salad? I will be passing some hors d'ouevres such as gougeres and stuffed mushrooms. The party runs from 4 pm Sunday afternoon. Any advice is most welcome.
