Here are some suggested ballpark quantities of what you’ll need.


Wine: Every individual needs to drink four cups of wine or grape juice, so a bottle of wine per person per Seder is a safe bet. (If you have small, 3 oz. cups, a bottle per person should just be enough for two nights.)


Matzah: If you are alone, 3 Matzahs for each evening will cover you just fine. You should factor in an additional two Matzahs per additional participant, as well as some extra for snacking during the meal. (There are various customs regarding exactly how much Matzah to eat and some Matzahs are thicker or bigger than others. These estimates assume you will be using round Matzah, which is somewhat larger than square, but better to err on the side of caution.)


Marror: Each person needs to have two portions of Marror (one eaten alone and one as part of the Korech sandwich), each one at least 2/3rds of an ounce (total). Preparing two ounces per person per night will have you covered.


Vegetables, Saltwater and Charoset: Even a minimal amount will do (in fact you should eat less than an ounce of the dipping vegetable).

Roasted bone: Is not eaten at all, so you just need one meatless chicken neck bone per Seder plate.


Egg: One hardboiled egg per Seder plate is fine. Some have the custom to eat the egg during the meal. If this is the case, prepare a few extra.


Feast Food: Bear in mind that you will be eating after having imbibed two cups of wine, and lots of Matzah and Marror, so you may not be too hungry.
