Hello Mom's, I need some opinions. I am expecting and my mom and best friend are throwing me a shower. We still have some time but we were talking about different kinds of food that I would like to have. I am expecting between 70 & 100 people and I am not sure if we should do all fingerfoods, or different types of soups, salads, and sandwiches, or brunch items, or ham and all the fixings. Please help I need to figure something out soon! Thank you all in advance!

With that many I wouldn't do finger foods. I would do a small meal.

Those huge cracker, cheese and meet platters. Cheese platters, fruit and Veggie platters with dip. Chips and dip. Shrimp (the serve cold cocktail ones)
Those are the ones off the top of my head. I'm sure if you Google party food ideas you can find kits of other finger food ideas: )

rom experience, i can tell you that the mini quiches (at least the ones sold in costco) are always devoured.http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/41/Wedding_Appetizer__Mini_Quiche21175.shtml
http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,161,154183-245205,00.html

also, pre-made meatballs in that sauce made with grape jelly (i kid you not!) in a crockpot...or little smokies. don't laugh, people; it may not be gourmet, but people love it!
http://www.slowcooker101.com/crockpot-grape-jelly-meatballs/ can also be made with apricot or plum preserves. or "bbq" sauce: http://appetizers-finger-food.suite101.com/article.cfm/barbeque_sweet_and_sour_meatball_recipe
~~~~~

also, "pulled pork in a crockpot" served with some martin's potato rolls, and pickles and cole slaw on the side.
http://www.slowcooker101.com/barbecue-pork-slow-cooker-recipes/
and a zillion threads on chowhound.com
~~~~~~~

also, very easy, filling and delicious: tortellini salad with chunks of pepperoni, mozzarella, italian vinaigrette, and roasted or fresh red bell peppers, olives and artichokes. maybe grape tomatoes....
~~~~~
and i'd be remiss if i failed to mention the all-time favorite: knorr's spinach-vegetable dip in a bread bowl! (double the green onions).
~~~~~~
mushrooms a la greque....http://wednesdaychef.typepad.com/the_wednesday_chef/2008/02/james-petersons.html
~~~~~~
cold sesame noodles
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/357943

~~~~~
on sam's rice and sausage theme: faux-paella with yellow rice, red bell peppers, pimento, chorizo or smoked sausage
