How Many appetizers to make?

If you are having a party with 10 or less guests make 3 appetizers.

10 - 20 party guests, have 5 appetizer options, 20-40 guests serve 7-9 different appetizers and 40 or more have 10-15 different appetizer options.

How Many Pieces Per Person?

When I am making appetizers I stick to planning 3-5 pieces per person if serving as a before dinner snack.

If you are having a party that is only appetizers being served, up that to 8-10 pieces per person for a 2 hour party.

Tips for Serving Appetizers

Since appetizers are individual bites of a dish it is easiest to serve them on a serving platter with toothpicks or small plastic skewers. Then have plates or bowls next to them for people to place their food on.

Dishes like fruit salad, pasta salads and dips can be served in small plastic cups for easy serving.
