Thank you, I am loving your responses! Party is not for a few months, fingers crossed. I have too many people to have in my home but if I need to scale it down and host it due to the C word, it will be do-able. Make ahead would be great. If at my home, I am probably going to do half myself and half catered. BTW, I love everything you all are suggesting especially Lumpia which I will never attempt, lol. Our local veteran's/military halls charge $450 for a small room and $750 for the larger. I would definitely need the larger. Don't know any members. :-( And "My DH and I have 12 siblings and their families between us"
