knives, cutting board, 2 punch ladles, 2 meat forks, pastry server, tooth picks
Cider – brought 4 gallons, 3.5 used (3.5 gallons fit in 3 crock pots; 1 smallish, 2 large)
Punch (cran and ginger) – Quinn: bought 5 gallons (5 each of 2 liter bottles of cranberry juice and ginger ale), used all of it and probably could have used at least one more bottle of each
Figgy pudding and sauce – Raven: brought 5 puds and 3 batches of sauce; needed 4 puds and 2 sauces
Wrapped popcorn balls – Antonia: a lot
Hedgehogs – Carlana: brought 3 hedge hogs; needed 2
Cheese slices brought 3 pkgs, 2 lbs each; (just under 1/2 lb left)
Grapes bought 3 bags (~2lbs each) each of green and red, about 2-3lbs leftover with lots of single grapes
Clementines (oh, sorry, tangerines…) – Mark: Yes, these should have been clementines and not tangerines–clementines, as Barbara pointed out, are easier to peel and might have been more popular.  She also suggested that distributing them around the food tables (on the unused compotes) might have been a better strategy than putting them all in one big bowl.  Next year I’ll try two or three five-pound boxes of clementines, and will hope for a better rate of consumption.
Hams – James and Catherine: 2 hams

Cookie #1 Chocolate Chip Meringues (GF) – Barbara: 8 dozen, no leftovers
