How many to order?


This is always a tricky one for the party host. You know your guests better than anyone else, and it is dependent on various factors such as time of day or the amount & type of alcohol being served.

As a general rule, the following guide has worked well over the years:

Before a sit-down meal?

4-5 per person.

During a short reception of around 1 hour?

6 per person.

Throughout an afternoon reception?

8-10 per person.

At an evening party?

10-12 per person.
