Party Planning Tips - Food and Beverage Quantities

We have put together a simple guideline to help you with your party planning. Keep in mind that every function has it's own unique set of requirements so consider the following when making any purchasing decision for your function:

Length of party
Time of day
Day of the Week
Gender and average age of the guest list
Guest preferences (if known)


Food

The most common question we get asked when it comes to food is how much should be served. We suggest having a minimum of four bites of food per person per hour throughout the day, and closer to six per hour if your event falls over the lunch or dinner hour. Finally, if you intend a cocktail party to replace a meal you should offer at least fourteen bites of food per person over the course of the function.
