Large Group Event Menu

The past couple of weeks I have shared a couple of recipes that I was testing out for a large group event we were having at church (approx. 200 women).  I was in charge of choosing the menu – 4 sweet treats and 4 savory treats.  This is the second year I have done the event and I have the best job – testing the recipes.  I then assign each ward (congregation) a recipe and they make it and bring it that night.  Many hands make light work!

I promised I would share the menu with you and I also told many of the ladies at the event I would post the recipes on the blog.

Sweet Treats:

Sour Cream Apple Bars – my personal favorite and a big hit!

White Chocolate Raspberry Bars – this one disappeared fast.

Lemon Shortbread Bars

Chocolate Oatmeal Bars

Savory Treats:

Mini Caprese Skewers – this was a repeat from last year and they were all gone!

Won Tons – these were back by popular demand.  They are made by an amazing Chinese woman who is in my ward.  She also happens to be our Relief Society President.  So good.  I’ll have to ask her to share the recipe here on the blog!

Sundried Tomato Pesto Palmiers

Pesto and Roasted Tomato Tortilla Rollups – recipe coming!

Come back tomorrow and I’ll share with you how I did the table set and decorations.

    Would you be kind enough to tell me where I might be able to find the small skewers that are used for the caprese app. I can only find the long ones uses for kabobs. Thanks.

    It all looks so yummy and beautiful! I’m totally wishing I was in your stake- we didn’t have any refreshments at ours. haha- oh well.

    How festive and wonderful the table looks loaded with delicious treats. I was a bit surprised at ours on Sat. They had a dinner which consisted on something like funeral potatoes with macaroni in it (it was good though) and on the buffet table were two large pots of canned green beans floating in water. Then for dessert…a brownie. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful but it was so ho-hum and
    everyday. If I saw your table at our conference, it would have made my night brighter. Thanks for sharing your ideas. As usual, they are so great!

    Your treats sound delicious and the table looks so festive. I can’t wait to hear what is is the tall glass container!

    I thought of you as our dinner was catered by a Cafe Rio that has opened in our county. Yum! There were homemade brownies for dessert.

    Best of all was the broadcast afterward. So inspiring.

    Yummo! they look delicious I wonder if I could bake them, I not really very handy in the kitchen but these recipes look wonderful. I just had my eight year olds party in the 20th I wish I had these to serve up.

    Looks like quite the menu! I use to be an event planner, and I swear caprese salad skewers are always a huge hit. I’m not a huge sweets person, but your treats look delicious. A great way to display what your food is, is using table tents. Table tents allow your guests to see what they are eating, this is especially good for vegetarians or people with allergies.
