Party & Event Supplies FAQs

How many napkins, plates and utensils to buy?


On average, people use three napkins, but since there’s always a spill or two, overestimating is a good idea. For example, for an event of 40 people, you would need (4 napkins times 40 people) a solid 160 napkins.

 Guests x (4) = Napkins to Buy

Plates & Utensils

Since some will be going back for seconds and even thirds, it is better to be prepared with about three disposable plates per person.
