    Ok, so I am working on a food menu for my bridal shower and I am kind of stuck. I want to keep this laid back so myself & helpers will be making the food for the party, mainly finger foods. I am a pescatarian (vegetarian who occasionally eats fish) so everyone will be eating like me for the day. I guess my question is how many different items do you think we should have? I don't want to go overboard but I also want to have enough variety.

    Here is my list so far:
    Veggie Tray
    Fruit Tray
    Cucumber Sandwiches
    Dips & Chips
    Stuffed Mushrooms
    Shrimp Cocktail
    7 Layer Salad
    Deviled Eggs

    I am still working on the dessert list.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. TIA

        Maybe some meatballs or chicken wings.. only because some people may not eat shrimp (allergies), etc.

          Sure! The more the merrier!

          A pasta dish sounds good. I do plan on having sweets I have been looking into that too. I will prob end up getting a cake but I would like to add some smaller sweets in the mix too. Any suggestions?

              cookies and brownies do sound good. plus i can do that ahead of time. the shower isn't until Aug so i have plenty of time, but i just wanted to have an idea of what to plan/budget for.

                That sounds like plenty of food. But if you're looking for more ideas, what about like tuna salad sandwiches or pimento cheese sandwiches, if you are staying away from meat. You could also do a tray with cheeses, pickles & olives...or something like that.

                    you really think that is enough food? i'm always affraid of not having enough and then i go nuts have end up having way too much. i like the variety tray idea! i will have to keep that in mind.
