How many desserts do I need for a dessert table?
For a table full of mini- desserts (no cake), allocate about 3-4 mini- desserts per person. You can take this down to 1-2 mini- desserts per person if you’re also having cake. You don’t want to overwhelm guests with options, so choose 2-3 more options than what you’re allotting per guests.
How much dessert do I need for 200 guests?

We normally recommend 3-4 mini desserts per person if your guests aren’t eating a slice of cake. As far as options go, you don’t want to overwhelm your guests with too many choices so we typically say only do 2-3 more options than the amount you are allotting each guest.

How many mini desserts do I need for 50 people?
Is that ok? Contrary to the recent thread in etiquette re. this issue, I do not agree that you need enough of each flavor for each guest (e.g. 4 cupcake flavors x 50 people = 200 cupcakes; 5 mini pie flavors x 50 = 250 mini pies; 50 cookies, 50 servings of cake). That’s 550 servings of dessert for 50 people.
