Since planning the exact amounts of food necessary for the dinner party or holiday meal is often a daunting prospect I have created a handy guide to help you know the amounts of each food item to purchase and prepare. This infographic will help you decide based on the number of guests how much of each item you need, thus helping to avoid waste and the embarrassment of running out of something in the middle of the meal. This guide is a basic rule and can be adjusted when you know your guests’ personal preferences, such as increasing the amount of gravy if you know someone likes to pour it over everything. Don’t forget to make sure about the amount of dishes, platters, and utensils for each dish. Remember to have extra silverware on hand for dessert and plenty of napkins. Follow these rules of thumb and your next party or holiday meal should be a success.

Key Takeaways:

  • Before heading out to buy ingredients, use your time party planning to avoid confusion at the grocery store. Use our infographic to know how much holiday food you need based on your number of guests.
  • If your number of guests isn’t represented in our party planning infographic, take the amount in the “per person” column and multiply the amount by the number of guests.
  • When it comes to putting on a great private party, getting the meal just right is almost an art. The guidelines above can easily be adjusted depending on your guests.
