Catering is Hard Work!

We (Cafe Solstice) catered our first event, a womens clothing swap, on November 19th...Here's a pic of the spread:

On the menu:

Veggie Tray with Beet Hummus Royale
Sandwich Wraps - Hummus-Olive and Pesto-Cheese
Tunisian Pumpkin Soup
Garlic-Potato Soup
Farinata (Rustic Italian) Soup
Cheesy Herb Scones
Mayan Spice Brownies
Cherry-Chocolate Cookies

What I learned from this experience:
Catering is expensive for a reason. It's tough to make food for 30-ish, from planning (guessing) how much to make, to transporting it all to the event, to cleaning up afterwards! Also, women trying on clothes don't eat a lot. :-)

Here are a few more pictures for your enjoyment...
