How much food and drinks to serve at a party

Oh y’all… I just love a chart. I could not resist making this handy-dandy guide to how much food and drinks to serve at a party, because I know it’s an issue that comes up all the time when you’re entertaining! How many drinks should you serve? How many cupcakes should you buy if there are 20 people coming? How many appetizers do you need for a cocktail party? How many fruit platters do you need at a cookout? So many questions!

I found a few answers thanks to a little write-up in Real Simple magazine – that’s where I got the idea to make a chart, because the information was great, but I thought it would be much nicer in graphic format. (Everything’s better when you make it into a chart, don’t you think?) Then I googled and researched and compared to get the rest of the numbers. I hope this helps you out the next time you’re planning a party menu! : )
