Baptismal Meal Menu...

We are planning on having an open house following the baby's baptism on the 16th. Some of our guests are on the Old Calendar (including my parents and siblings), so they will be fasting for Dormition Lent, while others will be eating whatever. This makes for a slightly complicated menu, but I think that it will all work out. Here's what I am planning on serving:

Smoked Salmon and Crackers
Shrimp Cocktail
Crab Balls*
Crab Soup*
Vegetables and Ranch Dip
Chicken Quesadilla Rolls
Olive Tapenade on French Bread

Main Meal
Tuna Submarine Sandwiches
Italian Submarine Sandwiches
Turkey Submarine Sandwiches
Beet Salad*
Potato Salad*
Cole Slaw*

Fruit Salad
Chocolate Cake (Lenten)

Iced Tea

Is there anything that I am missing? Any suggestions?

*I just got a phone call from some parishioners who own a seafood shop, and they want to bring crab balls, crab soup, beet salad, potato salad, and cole slaw for the baptism. Therefore, I am not going to serve the smoked salmon and shrimp cocktail.

I think that is a lovely list! Wishing you a lovely day and a beautiful baptism for your littlest man!

Looks like something for everyone! I can't believe it's less than a week away already!

PLEASE tell me you aren't fixing all of this yourself!

I think the list is great, but I really hope you have help. In my experience, the godparents are usually responsible for the meal afterwards.

It sounds like it will be lovely! I agree that it is tricky when you have mixed calendars. Looks like you've walked that line well.
