    Hi ladies!

    I'm planning a small gathering (36 people or so!) after Miss M's first communion. Mass is at 10, then there will be a little breakfast at church for the kids. So, I'm thinking 1ish for my house because I'll need set up time. My theme is pink/white/crosses. I have ordered a cross shaped cake covered in white icing roses, with a pink banner that reads "God Bless Madison". I'm going to make cupcakes, myself as well.

    I am torn on the menu. I'm thinking

    Apps~Deviled Eggs, Cheese and Crackers, BLT tip with crackers, veggies and dip.

    Main~Ham (roast a ham and slice) on hard rolls with a choice of cheese (or should I just do a deli platter?!), Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Tossed Salad, Fruit Salad....not sure if I should have a hot dish rigatoni and meat sauce?!

    Beverages~Tea, Water, Punch, Soda

    I'm also thinking some cookies as part of dessert.

    I don't want it to be a "heavy" luncheon

    I'd appreciate any ideas.

    I would keep it simple and do the ham with the salad type items. Pasta salad and such as you mentioned. The cake sounds yummy already!

    Toss that ham in the crock pot to cook. Drain off the liquid just before serving and the crock pot will keep it warm for you.

    Sound like you will have a great time.

    This is a day for you to enjoy with your family. Make it easy on yourself, Lisa. I like the ham sandwiches, some salads, maybe chips, drinks and the dessert. 36 people~is that including the 4 of you? Use the K.I.S.S. system.....keep it simple, stupid (the stupid I reserve for myself, no one else!).

    Sounds great with what you have planned. I, too, suggest keeping it simple with the ham sandwiches and salads.
