TOPIC: COCKTAIL PARTIES & BUFFET
Planning a Cocktail Party or Buffet Dinner but not quite sure of how much food and drink to plan on?
Although your guests will consume different quantities at differing rates, the following quantities used as an average should be just fine:
1. Before 7 p.m.: Plan 21 bites per person 2. After 8 p.m.: Plan 12 bites per person, of which 4 bites can be sweet. 3. Open House: Plan 8 bites per person 4. Beverages: Plan 1½ drinks per person per hour 5. Buffet: Plan 6 bites appetizer and ½ serving per buffet item per person
