Disposable napkins are generally available in 3 different sizes: beverage, luncheon, and dinner. A fourth size might be a guest towel which has a different purpose. Beverage napkins may vary from different manufacturers but will generally measure 10″x10″ when unfolded. This means that when the 10″x10″ napkin is unfolded it will appear to have 4 sections – or panels – and when folded it will appear as a 5″ square.
Beverage napkins have several uses, but as the name implies, it is generally served with beverages. Beverage napkins can also be served with light finger food. We generally recommend a luncheon napkin for anything larger than finger food. Beverage napkins can be made of 1, 2 or 3 ply tissue paper (quality increases with the number of plies). The highest quality luncheon napkin is made of a soft and thick tissue which is marketed under the name Better than Linen.
When preparing for your event, it is recommended that you plan for each guest to use 2-3 beverage napkins. Between guests throwing away their napkins on purpose or, believe it or not, using them, you are sure to need quite a few for any size party. Luckily beverage napkin party supplies generally come in counts of 25 or 50 napkins per package.
Depending on the size of your party you can also look into buying in bulk to save more money with wholesale prices. Case counts range, but they do go up to and beyond 600 napkins in a case.
