How Many Napkins Should I Order?

Posted on

How many napkins should I order?  That’s a common question that we get daily.  Once your Bar Mitzvah invitations have been ordered and received, it’s time to focus on other items needed to celebrate on the day of your event.  These special touches and attention to details will impress your guests and leave them with joyful memories of your occasion.

Personalized napkins are available in many sizes and colors.  In this blog post, we will focus on beverage napkins.  Typically, a beverage or cocktail napkin will measure approximately 5″ square.

Experts generally recommend that 3 to 4 beverage napkins per guest for cocktails and appetizers.  If your event includes multiple bars or appetizer stations, you’ll want to add 1 – 2 beverage napkins per guest.

Your venue may provide cloth napkins for the dinner portion of your celebration, but don’t forget about your dessert table.  Here, you’ll want to include 1 – 2 additional cocktail napkins.
