Napkin Ordering Guide

Welcome to the napkin ordering guide. One of the constant comments we hear after a wedding or other event is how the host and hostess wished they had not run out of napkins for their guests. We set up this guide based on our experience with these events to help you plan the perfect event and keep your party moving without product shortages. Our simple formula provides numbers for luncheon or dinner size napkins with dinner and also using luncheon napkins when serving cake. Beverage napkins are served with every drink and your average guest will have 3 to 4 drinks. This includes non-alcoholic drinks and coffee. Beverage napkins can also be used to serve cake so be sure to order accordingly. Beverage numbers can also be supplemented with coasters as well. Napkins are also grabbed by the handful so if you think ordering one napkin per guest will do the job, you will run out faster than you think. This does not include handfuls of napkins used to wipe up spills! These numbers are only estimates based on average events. Only you will know your final requirements. Any leftover napkins are never wasted and can be used for future celebrations especially anniversaries.
