Place settings come in numbers of pieces. Some place settings can be 4 pieces; some, 6 pieces, some 5, some as many 8 pieces per person.

How many pieces are in each place setting?

I know you have 12 place settings for 12 guests. I just need to know how many pieces does each of the 12 guests have.

As for serving pieces, I will take the usual serving pieces as " all the serving pieces" can be as many 6 or 15.

Kind regards,
