- 1.5 hour cocktail reception – 8 pieces per person
- 1 hour cocktail reception – 6 pieces per person
- 45 minute cocktail reception – 4-5 pieces per person
- 30 minute cocktail reception – 3 pieces per person
Pieces per person means that you should have 6 hors d’oeuvres for each person to eat. Say you have 100 guests, that means you should have 600 pieces for a 1 hour cocktail reception. You can either have 100 pieces of 6 different hors d’oeuvres or 150 pieces of 4 different hors d’oeuvres.
Are you doing stations as well? We will go over our suggested cocktail hour quantities for a combination of butler passed hors d’oeuvres and stations next week.
