For a stand up cocktail party figure 6 sq feet per person. Theater style wedding or concert figure 7 sq feet per person. Set down dinner needs 12-15 sq feet per person.
What size dance floor do I need?

Plan 2 cups or 32 ounces of punch per person. Also keep in mind that our wine fountain is perfect for punch also and it will hold up to 7 gallons of punch.
What about other drinks?

For a cocktail party or wedding with an open bar you need to figure 3 glasses per person. We have all set down our glass and forgot where it is. For a party where the wine is at the table figure 2 glasses per person. Your guest will be able to change from a white to a red wine or try a different label.
