CanapĂ©s are small, bite-sized portions of food that are easy to eat while standing and socializing. CanapĂ©s are a popular choice for events such as corporate functions, weddings,  cocktail parties, and other gatherings where guests may be mingling before a larger meal or during a drinks reception.  CanapĂ©s are a type of hors d’oeuvre,  usually with a bread, cracker, pastry, or similar base. This makes them ideal finger food for eating whilst standing and socialising. We also serve some items on skewers.

How Many Canapés Should I Serve?

This is a question that we get asked a lot. The number of canapés to serve for each guest depends on the type and the duration of your event and whether other food is being served. Sometimes canapés are served as appetizers during the first hour or so of a party. At other times they are used as a starter-substitute.  If there is no substantial meal as part of the event then you should consider having higher quantities of canapés per person.  We provide some fairly typical guidelines below.

3-4 canapés per person if you will be having a 3-course meal.

5-6 canapés per person if you will be having a 2-course meal.

8-10 canapés per person if you are having a canapés party with no planned substantial meal to follow.

For longer duration events, with no meal, we would recommend 12, or more, canapés per person.

With regards to how many different types of canapés you should offer your guests, it is essential to have a variety of options to cater to different tastes and dietary preferences, particularly if there is no meal later on. 

Certain canapés are very popular and you may wish to have more of one type than another. If you know your guests and their preferences you can adjust the quantities based on your particular circumstances.  If in doubt, you can consult with us to help ensure the appropriate amount of food will be available for your event.
