It can be a bit tough to determine how many party supplies you’ll actually need for your party, and it can end up being very pricey if you don’t plan it properly. We have come up with some helpful shopping tips for when it comes to picking up cups, cutlery, and plates. If you follow the following guidelines, it should help both you and your wallet! For any party supplies that you need, pop into H.C. Walterhoefer today. Read on to learn more!


Initiations are an excellent way to give your guests a good idea of the theme of your party. Whether this is a graduation party, wedding reception, or summer cookout, you will want to have your invitees’ list so you know precisely how many invites you should get. Most invitations are sold in packs of anywhere from eight to 50.


You should buy two types of napkins for your party. These would be beverage and cocktail napkins, along with dinner and luncheon napkins. It’s recommended that people use about three to four beverage napkins each, especially if punch and alcohol are involved. So you will want to take your number of guests and multiply it by three or four to get a solid idea of how many cocktail or beverage napkins you might need. For dinner and other meals, it’s generally suggested that guests will use about one or two per person. For advice on how many napkins you should buy for your party, pop into H.C. Walterhoefer. We sell eco-friendly paper napkins, paper towels, and toilet paper all in bulk!


Some other party supplies you can’t forget are forks, knives, and spoons. If you plan on serving a full-course meal, you will want to plan for two forks, one knife, and one spoon per person. If you are only serving desserts and appetizers, you’ll want to plan for two forks and two spoons per guest. Generally, these come in separated packs of 20 each. H.C. Walterhoefer sells cutlery in bulk as well, so come in to stock up for your next party or event!
