Easier Said Than Done

Hmm...we're trying to figure out the Friday night food situation. No rehearsal dinners for us.

a) Too exclusive
b) Too stuffy
c) Too expensive
d) All of the above

But we do want to have food and drinks to welcome our guests to Colorado and to our wedding weekend. We have exactly $290 allocated to the occasion at this point. We're thinking of deli sandwich trays, chips, and homemade dessert.

Easier said than done.

The best deal I can find right now is $200 for 40 people. And we're expecting around 100 for the wedding, so maybe 75 for the Friday night gig.

We'll have to keep looking. On the bright side, we have found inexpensive compostable plates and corn starch biodegradable forks. And we've decided to sew cloth napkins for the occasion. Woo-hoo!

You might be able to scale down on the deli trays. Have you priced out just buying a mess o' bread, cold cuts and cheese, and doing a build-your-own sammich buffet?
