@partyplanner83:  When I used to work tables, I maybe replaced cutlery a handful of times. So I would guess maybe have an extra 5% ?  Are you self-catering?

I agree with @_Adelaide_: , 5% is enough. I used to work catering also and it was usually only a few people at events that dropped stuff. Maybe a few more if you’re expecting a lot of young kids.
