Trying to figure out how much you'll need for various elements of your social can be a huge stressor - but it doesn't have to be! Unfortunately whoever you ask about how much juice or chips someone had at their social, each answer you get will be different, and the reason for this is that every single crowd is different. It is honestly impossible to guess the exact amount that will satisfy your crowd, but hopefully this guide will help you get close. Will you run out? The honest answer is, maybe! Will it matter? Not so much. It depends when you run out, what you run out of, and again, it depends on your crowd! If you run out of chips at 11, but are serving your late lunch at 1130, then it doesn't matter! My suggestion is to OVER BUY. It is of course better to have too much than not enough. Make sure you keep your receipts so you can return everything that is unused. So take a deep breath, follow these guidelines and every little thing will be all right!
In the end, what you have will be what you have. If you run out, there is nothing you can do about it, so don't sweat it! Running out of cranberry juice will not ruin your social, I promise you. I hope this guide takes a little bit of the stress off of you and that you have a fantastic social!
May fun characterize your evening,
