  • Need advice for bridal shower

    Would anyone know approximately how many pounds of lunch meat and cheese I will need to make a cold-cut party platter for a bridal shower.
    I want to use ham, turkey, roast beef along with swiss, provolone and white American cheese. 70 guests will attend. We are also having a baked ziti with meatballs and sausage bites with onions, green pepper and tomato, veggie and fruit trays etc.
    Also, not sure how many boxes of ziti I should prepare. I don't want to over do it, but I also want to make sure I have enough to feed everyone.
    Thanks for taking the time to read my post. Hope someone can help

    Here's some charts to start with. Just google what you cannot find here

    With the ziti, I went to a site that servings could be adjusted and it was about (1) 16.-oz box per every 10 people. I'm not sure that at a bridal shower that everyone will eat ziti, or if they do, they probably won't eat as much as if it is was a regular meal.
