What time is the party?  How long will it last?  Is it expected to replace a meal?  What are the rough ages of the children?  (e.g 2 or 12?)

I think that the usual number per person is about 6-7.

i spoke to a wedding planner when i was looking for my venue.. and they said 2-3 pieces a person.. but that’s assuming you are providing some sort of dinner.. if not, i’d do 5-7

@october5bride: I agree with these numbers, depending on if you are doing other foods or not. If not, I think that having at least 2 dozen of each of the 6 differnt types would be sufficient, but be mindful of the kids and any allergies that you know of
