I get the impression the original post is getting lost, ladies and gentlemen!
If I were the visitors, I'd just love to experience a real Thai Breakfast. Chopstix; you have obviously taken a lot of time and trouble thinking out how to please your guests. That is excellent.
However, I'd try to keep the menu "local" and the flavours gentle.
I love Thai food, but the first time I tried a Thai green curry paste,I realised I knew NOTHING! about green chilli peppers! I eat our local hot peppers raw, but yours are simply way above my heat level. So, the next time I tried the green curry paste... I cut the recommended "dose" by half. Fine for me, too hot for my wife, the kids loved it...
I'd be really delighted (as a foreign visitor) if you served me a traditional Thai breakfast - but try to tone down the hot peppers ( don't do that for me, i love 'em!) and tone down the really strong Thai flavours. They may not be very fond of fish sauce, perhaps, so instead of using your usual measure, use 1/4 .
