What quantity should I order?

NAPKINS

The number of napkins to order per guest at your event can vary depending on the type of event, the duration, and the nature of the activities involved. However, a general guideline is to provide 2-3 napkins per guest. This quantity allows for multiple uses throughout the event!

To estimate the number of napkins needed more precisely, you can consider the following factors:

  1. Meal Service: If your event includes a meal or buffet, plan on providing at least one napkin per guest per course or serving. This accounts for napkins used during the meal and any additional napkins required for potential spills or accidents.

  2. Duration of Event: Longer events typically require more napkins. For extended gatherings or events that span several hours, you might want to increase the quantity to ensure an ample supply for guests throughout the duration.

  3. Type of Event: Different types of events might have varying napkin needs. For formal occasions, guests may use more napkins, while casual events may require fewer. Consider the nature of your event and adjust the quantity accordingly.

  4. Beverages: If your event includes drinks, keep in mind that guests may need extra napkins for condensation, spills, or simply to hold their cups. For bar service we suggest 1 napkin, per guest, per hour that your bar is open or that drinks are being served.

Remember, it's always better to have a few extra napkins on hand, and for keepsakes, than to run out!

CUPS

The number of cups to order per guest at your event can depend on various factors, such as the duration of the event, the availability of alternative beverage options, and the type of event you're hosting. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, here are some guidelines to help you estimate the quantity of cups needed:

    1. Beverages Served: Consider the types of beverages you'll be offering at your event. If you're serving multiple beverages like water, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages, it's generally recommended to have at least one cup per guest for each type of drink. This ensures that guests can have a fresh cup when switching between beverages.

    2. Duration of the Event: Longer events or those with extended drink service will require more cups per guest. As a general guideline, you can estimate about 2-3 cups per guest for events lasting a few hours. For all-day or multi-day events, it might be wise to increase the quantity accordingly.

    3. Guest Preferences: If your event includes a specific type of drink that requires a separate cup, such as a tasting event or a coffee bar, ensure that you have enough cups to accommodate each guest's preferences.

    4. Some venues may require the use of plastic cups on the dance floor for safety reasons. In such cases, we recommend adding extra plastic cups to your order to accommodate this specific venue requirement. Our product selection includes a variety of plastic cups that are both durable and disposable, providing a practical solution without compromising on quality.

It's important to remember that these are general guidelines, and it's always better to err on the side of having a few extra cups to avoid running out. By estimating the number of guests, considering the duration and nature of your event, and factoring in the beverage options, you'll be able to make a more accurate estimate of how many cups to order per guest.

KOOZIES

When planning the quantity of koozies for your event, consider the following:

Guest Count: For koozies, it's generally advised to order one per guest. However, to ensure there are enough for use during the event and for guests to take home as souvenirs, we recommend ordering at least 1.25 koozies per guest. This allows for some guests to take an extra koozie or to account for any that might be lost or damaged during the event. If you're expecting 100 guests, consider ordering at least 125 koozies to ensure a comfortable supply.

Type of Event: Consider the setting and formality of your event. Casual or outdoor events may see more koozie use, while formal settings might not necessitate as many. Tailor your order to the event's style and your guests' likely use.

Beverage Service: If your event will feature canned or bottled drinks, koozies will be a practical addition. Adjust your order based on whether drinks will be served throughout the event or only at specific times.

Display and Accessibility: Think about where you'll place the koozies for easy access. Near the bar or at a welcome table are good spots. You might also distribute them as people arrive or incorporate them into the table settings.

By considering these points, you can confidently decide the right number of koozies for your event, ensuring that they add to the experience for you and your guests. Always order a bit more than the exact number of guests to account for any contingencies and to have keepsakes from the special day.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FOAM AND NEOPRENE KOOZIE MATERIAL?

Our foam can coolers are made from 4mm polyurethane collapsible foam. This is considered a premium foam in the industry and the most common type of can cooler around.

On the other hand, our neoprene can coolers are considered an upgraded option. They are made of 3mm thick neoprene material, similar to the material used in wet suits. While foam works best for cans, neoprene is versatile, fitting both cans and providing a tight, secure grip on bottles. These neoprene coolers feature zig-zag stitching on each side, which not only adds durability but also provides a pleasant feel when holding your drink.
