26 Mar Setting a Buffet Table? Follow Our 30 Pro Tips! Part 4.
Whether you’re hosting a small and private summer soiree, or a plush wedding, having a buffet table for your guests might seem the perfect way to have them enjoy the scene, while freeing you from tending to the food serving personally the whole time. Yet today, we’re revealing a few our Pro Tips on setting the perfect buffet table!
Tips for Setting a Buffet Table
- Direct the flow of traffic
Implement a successful crowd flow by using one of the 3 techniques: Full Circle, Lining Up, or Dual Side Serving.
- In a full circle method, guests can orbit around strategically placed circular tables, whenever they wish. This keeps the space open and airy — quite ideal for cocktail hours or networking situations
- The traditional line up helps keep things neat and compact in even the tiniest of food serving spaces
- And finally, the dual side serving station allows larger groups the opportunity to get through buffet lines quicker, which is especially important for events where speakers or featured or other activities will be taking place
- Coordinate table linens and napkins with your event theme
Nevertheless, if you’re using paper napkins, there’s no reason why you can’t keep everything looking cohesive. Matching your linens, napkins, and even your tableware can bring the whole look together for a more polished, professional event image.
- Use Serving Spoons for Display
Curly canape spoons are great for tasting parties, but they’re also very useful for buffets. Whether or not you opt to share these via tray pass in addition to your display, these versatile showboats make great vehicles for more expensive items (like sushi bites and caviar) or messier treats (like puddings and mini ravioli resting in sauce).
