DH and I are going to renew our vows in October for our 20th anniversary. We are inviting our family, a few close friends. Perhaps around 50 people.

After renewing our vows I would like to have a fall outing at our home. I don't want to spend a lot of $$ for the party because I'd like to either go away for a couple of nights or buy a new (never had new) bedroom set. So, I thought I could ask since they are family to bring a dish to share. So I'm looking for about say 15 recipes or suggestions.

I thought I'd bake a sprial ham, and roast beef the evening or morning of so I need salads, and things to go with it.

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

The tortellini salad sounds great. I think I'm going to make that to take on our vacation to go with lunch or dinner.
