How Many Different Types Of Hors d’Oeuvres Should You Serve?
Caterers often use this rule of thumb:
- Up to 50 people: 4 to 5 varieties
- 50 to 100 people: 7 to 8 varieties
- More than 100: Up to 10 varieties
However, we look at it from the eating point of view, not the headcount point of view. It’s how long the party lasts, not how many people attend. Whether you’re one of 20 guests or one of 120, if you’re there for two hours do you want to look at the same four puffs and quiches pass by, or do you want to see seven, eight, or ten choices? You be the judge!
Beyond The Cocktail Party
In addition to serving Black Tie at parties, you can bring a box of hors d’oeuvres as a hostess gift, use them for amuses bouche at your dinner table, or break open a box when you’ve had a long day and need to feel civilized with something more than just a glass of wine...in just seven minutes.
