The number of hors d’oeuvres you need often depends on how long the cocktail “hour” is, the time of day, and if a meal will also be served following the cocktail hour.

For a two hour party plan for:

  • 10-12 bites per person
  • 20 bites per person if the hors d’oeuvres replace dinner (e.g., if the party starts at 7:00 pm)

When hors d’oeuvres are served before a meal, plan for:

  • 5-7 bites when served before a light meal
  • 3-4 bites when served before a full dinner meal

People eat more during the first 90 minutes. After two hours consumption picks up again, especially if hors d’oeuvres replace dinner.

Young people eat more than an older crowd and guests eat more at casual parties than formal functions.
