I’d probably do 1.5 per person, per event, IF there are fabric napkins or plain ones around. Maybe 2 per person, per event if there’s no alternative.

I’d say a little more:

If the bar is going to give out a napkin with every drink (to wrap around the cup or hold underneath, etc) I’d say 3 per person. If the option is for the person to take the napkin, I’d say maybe 1-2 per person…as most people don’t. 

Are you doing passed apps with napkins too? That’d be more. 

And for the pizza night I’d say 2 per person is a fair amount.
