How do you calculate dessert buffet?

What goes on a wedding dessert table?
Fill a table with chocolate-dunked goodies like Rice Krispies bars and caramel apples. Or have a chocolate fountain with dippers like fruit skewers, bite-size brownies and soft pretzels (for that delectable salty-sweet combo). And if chocolate brown doesn’t fit your wedding palette, choose a different hue.
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.
How do you display small desserts?
Wood boxes, hat boxes, crates can all be used as risers to hold small treats or trays of sweets. Cake stands can hold more than just cakes. Place bite size desserts on them, or mini parfaits and drink shots.
