7.5 lbs meatballs
4 lbs shrimp
6 lbs filet mignon
baked ziti
macaroni with broccoli, garlic & oil

Will this be a meal? Like a supper or late lunch?
I find it's best to have enough of each item to serve at least a small serving to every one invited.
You will probably get about 35 small servings out of the chicken if the pieces are cut small, a good 50 servings or more of meatballs....depending on how small you make them, 4 pounds of shrimp....will only give you about 25s rvings....unless they are pretty small shrimp and you count one shrimp as a serving....and about 25 to 30 servings of beef filet.
I think I would serve fewer things and more of whatever you choose to serve.
And I think you need some raw veggie munchies and some sweets. Will this be sit down or buffet...or just graze and eat from tiny plates?

i agree with lindac. it's a bit of meat fest so far. add fruit and veggie dishes. maybe a big salad, and sweets will be easy
