10 Apr Setting a Buffet Table? Follow Our 30 Pro Tips! Part 6
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
- Fill in display gaps with seasonal decor, candles, and flowers
Depending on the time of year, you can use faux foliage, pinecones, flower petals, or even seashells to build out your event theme through your buffet table. If you opt for candles, make sure they are not scented — otherwise, they might compete with the delicious aroma from the food. And for your flowers, focus on single stems placed in low vases so guests don’t accidentally knock them over.
- Label all food, snacks, and beverages
Buffet food labels are easy to make. Whether you opt for calligraphy or printed, folded or in stands, they’re an essential addition to your buffet for both practical and aesthetic reasons. If your guests have any allergies or dietary needs, make sure to properly label dishes that comply. And, if you have space, name each dish and include their key ingredients so guests know what they’re in for before taking a bite.
- Experiment with pipettes
Pipettes are one food and beverage trend your guests will definitely be excited to try. They’re unique and make for more interesting food displays. Fill them with sauces, dressings, or even dessert toppings. Whatever you choose to do with them, the dramatic effect of a mini pipette will certainly be a conversation starter.
