For a casual buffet dinner of small bite appetizers, chinese entries and small bite desserts plus a birthday cake for 50 people, how many disposable plates, napkins (large and beverage), cups and eating utensils do I need to purchase? Thank you. (Your information provided for food quantities was so helpful!)

Use sturdy items; two dinner and 2 dessert plates each, 3 forks, 1.2 knives, 2 spoons, 3 cups/glasses, plus coffee cups and spoons or stirrers if served, 3 large napkins, 4 beverage napkins (some on the dessert table).

Get them from somewhere you can return unopened packs, and save the receipts.

If this save you time. trouble, or cash, consider a donation to support the site.
