Welcome RMB48. I see this is your first post and you just joined. Be sure to stop in to the Roll Call section and introduce yourself.
Hmmmm, no matter how I spin this I see lots of leftovers, but that's not a bad thing. I'm not a caterer and I'm half Italian, which means I cook enough for an army just in case we're invaded during dinner. Here's my spin assuming normal sized folks:
Figure 2 ribs per person, 13 ribs per rack, that's 3 racks of spares or baby backs. Better do 4.
Pulled pork? One 6-8 lb butt is plenty.
Cupcake chicken? One per person will be enough. ValuePaks of thighs locally are usually 10 to a pack so 2 packs.
Sausage? Go light. You could easily do 10 sausages and cut them in half to serve.
I doubt someone would take one of everything, but they might. This way you'd have them covered.
Have fun at the baby shower. Run for the hills when they start playing the games! Wives (and coworkers) LOVE to humiliate hubbies at baby showers.
