Canapes

 

How many will I need??

 

Canapè consumption goes up and down in direct relation to when, where and who. The following are only guidelines, but can be useful for planning your event. Consider when your guests have last eaten, if they have had to travel or come straight from work they are more likely to eat more. Also friends and family will be less shy to tuck in as opposed to those at a formal function. But those paying for a ticket to a function will expect more food, and value for their money. The time of year can also be a factor, with the winter months bring heartier appetites.

 

  • For pre-lunch or dinner drinks allow 3 pieces per guest

  • For canapès served instead of a first course before a lunch or dinner party, allow 5 pieces per guest

  • For a drinks party allow 8 to 10 pieces per guest

  • For a canapès only party served in place of a meal, allow 14 pieces per guest

  • For a stand up wedding reception, allow 12 pieces per guest and choose 8-10 different savoury canapès and 2-4 different sweet canapès (please ask about sweet canapès)
