My DD is getting christened a week on Sunday and I am mostly catering for it myself. We have 50 or so guests

I have a room booked in a lovely little pub close to the church and plan to decorate with bunting etc so am going for a shabby chicesque theme.

With that in mind, what do you think of my planned menu? Opinions good and bad sought!

Sandwiches from a local deli (what fillings would you suggest?)
Cheeseboard from local deli chutneys etc
Mini pork pies
Smoked salmon blinis (will probably do a veg option as well - perhaps hummus?)
Scones with clotted cream and jam
Victoria sponge x 2
Lemon drizzle cake x 2
Fruit tarts
Chocolate brownies
Chocolate dipped strawberries

Am toying with having cupcakes as well.

Do you think this is substantial enough? The service is at 10:30am and people are travelling...

Also, do you think it polite to serve a drink on arrival?

Thank you!!
