I’m in the process of changing venues. The prior required a licensed caterer, expensive bar, etc. the new venue you can bring own alcohol, and own food. So if I get the venue, I will be purschasing clear hard plastic cups, cake and dinner plates, and “silver-look” utensils. I priced them for 150 people and it will be around $200. I have no problem using the hard clear plastics because a lot of caterers use the same products for their buffet setups. I’m going for a semi-formal reception look. The main table will have chargers…basically for look and pictures but I will be using plastics because I’ll have no service staff. When I priced the plastics I thought it was a bit much but my overall costs will be lower. The way the numbers are below is me buying in bulk.

192 fork, knife, and spoon sets

240 9″ clear plastic dinner plates

480 clear plastic cups

300 clear plastic 6″ cake plates

Do you think these numbers are enough for 150-160 people?
