They say the best things come in small packages and a bite-sized canapé certainly fits the bill! Opting for canapés for your event solves the problem of space and allows your guests to really enjoy a party, as they are able to freely walk around and interact with each other whilst canapés are being passed around on trays and platters.
The number of canapés to serve really depends on a party you are having. We would usually recommend around 8 savory and 2-3 sweet canapés per person for a party where no other food is served.
If it’s a drinks reception after a wedding ceremony, and before the wedding breakfast, 3-4 pieces per person will do just right. These quantities will surely tease the taste buds but won’t be enough to spoil the appetite of your wedding guests before the main meal.
If you would like to serve some finger food at a gallery event, aim for around 4-6 canapés per person.
We advise to ensure all tastes and preferences are catered for with a mix of seafood, meat/poultry and vegetarian canapés. Allergies and special diets, including diary and gluten free, can all be accommodated.
All events are different and we would be happy to discuss your specific requirements however as a guide, our canapés start at £10 per head.
