Graduation luncheon--tips needed
I am planning a luncheon right after Son's ceremony, which lasts from about 10am-noon. Invited are 8 of S best friends, plus all of their parents, out of town guests. We may have a few extra here & there, total maybe 80 tops. This will be outside, with tents etc.
This is NOT a teenagers only drop-by event.
First, I need tips from anyone who has pulled off this scale event. I have served 100, but only in an open house sort of thing where everyone did not arrive at once.
Second, anyone have advice about combining some catering with some self-catering? What are the hardest parts to do by yourself?
Finally, anyone have favorite recipes for make & freeze that will be appropriate?
All ideas welcome--many thanks!
