Tracy asked if I knew how much fruit to buy for a wedding reception. Hmmm...
Whether you're hosting a wedding or just planning a breakfast, buying the right amount of food saves money. (Remember the potato salad that never quit?)
I recommended she read a library copy of the oldie-but-goodie, How To Have A Big Wedding On A Small Budget Brush away the tacky ideas and concentrate on the plans for catering your own reception.
I always like to copy the professionals. We found these photos of fancy fruit displays. Wow...and yikes! These could be a disaster if you're not artistic.
The good news? Elegance is a silver platter piled only with strawberries in season. Add a crystal bowl of freshly whipped cream or powdered sugar for dipping.
Finally I stumbled upon EZ Wedding Planner, which tells you exactly how much of each food to buy per person. Bingo!
What tips do you have for catering your own wedding reception?
