High School grad party for my son I cooked for 54 adults and too many kiddos to count. Lots of folks eat standing up and grazing. I did the ribs, resmoked a cure 81 and three turkey breasts. White bread, Italian bread, Kings Hawaiian rolls. All easy cooks. During the peak I had BBQ chipotle meatballs, margaritaville shrimp, ABT's chips and dips. Sausage in white bread with slaw and a BBQ sauce is tasty.
I did not serve any alcohol although I had a secret stash in the washing machine in the utility room for me and one brother.
You want to stay busy but not too busy that you can't enjoy the event also. People to watch for
Weird uncle frank: make sure he minds his manners
Crazy Aunt Nancy: remind her it is NOT her party, be brutally honest if necessary
Ghoulish Grandma: all old folks have basically are their memories but try to avoid letting her capture innocents with stories of the dead and the dying.
Pray and good luck

By the way, did she mention my name-just in passing?
