Appetizer Math

The number and type of appetizers you serve all depend on the event you are hosting. Since you'll serve a full course meal at a dinner party, you can prepare fewer appetizers. For a cocktail party, appetizers will be the focus, so be sure you have plenty to go around!

Type of Event Number of Appetizers
Cocktail Party: 12 pieces per person
Dinner Party: 4 to 5 pieces per person for an early meal
6 per person for a later meal
Variety: 8 different appetizers if 50+ people
4 to 5 different appetizers for 20+ people
3 different appetizers for small gatherings
