    Food for Fifty recommends 5 pounds for 50, so I'd suggest 15 pounds, say five pounds of each of three cheeses

    Don't even try to  put cheese for 150 on 1 tray.. 2 or 3 trays scattered around the room so you wont have long lines. 5-6 pounds per tray plus grapes and some fruit as garnish. crackers also in baskets

    Thanks for the help. It all went very well. I should have explained myself better, I was intending to put it on 4 trays. It was an amazing venue, Farmtown Park, set up like an street from the thirties, cheese trays were put on barrels spread throughout. Looked great!
