There is always an issue when it comes to trying to plan enough food for the amount of guest you are having at your party I have put together some suggestions on what serving size suggests for various food items.
1.5 servings for each guest
1.5 cups for each guest
Fruits and Vegetables
2 large platter for every 25 guests
(With a main course) 6 pieces per guest
(Without a main course) 12 pieces per guest
***For ideas on appetizers please refer to my previous post Appetizer Do’s and Don’ts.
1.5 cupcakes or 1.5 servings per each guest
3 medium size cookies per guest
Half a cup per guest
Ice Cream 1 cup per guest
2 gallons for every 25 guests
1.5 drinks per hour per guest
***If you are not serving any alcohol at all double the amount of non-alcoholic drinks per 25 guests. If you have any questions please ask them in the comments below.
