how many pieces of finger food do I need per person?

  • allow more food over normal meal times (i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner) we recommend 5-6 pieces per person per hour
  • allow more food where the ratio of men to women is higher
  • factor in whether alcohol is being served. for nibbles with drinks we recommend 3-4 pieces per person per hour
  • factor in whether all of your guests that have rsvp’ed will attend
