For a Cocktail Party, you should allow 6-7 pieces per person per hour and you may also consider 1-2 stationary options

If the Hors d’oeuvres will be served before a main course you should allow 3-4 pieces per person

  1. Soup

Generally one quart will feed 2-4 guests depending on the size of the bowl

  1. Salad

1 pound of salad will generally feed 6 guests

  1. Main Course

Half pound per person if ONLY one entrée

¼ pound side dishes per person

¼ pound vegetables per person
