Is this in lieu of tables for eating dinner at?  Or are you just having high tables and hordoevres for your reception?  I would say get at least 15 high tables if these are the 2 to 3 foot round tables we are talking about.  I think they say 4 people can comfortably stand around those 2 to 3 foot round high tables.

I’d think 10-15 would be good… are you going to have some sort of seating at all for the guests?

We had 85 guests at our wedding in May and for sit down it was 9 tables, but only 68 showed up.

For standing tables, 10-15 is appropriate.

I would say ten since you will have benches and it sounds like there’s a walking area.  People tend to do outside with drinks, they mingle, so they don’t always stay at the tables the whole time.
