15 May Setting a Buffet Table? Follow Our 30 Pro Tips! Part 10
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
- Group similar foods and flavors together
Ever heard of the flavor matrix? It’s a really useful chart that professional chefs look to when creating new flavor combos and pairings. If you really want to get creative, use it to strategically group and display your food at the buffet. But if you’re not interested in getting that detailed, just keep obvious pairings like soups and salads or dips and chips a logical distance from one another.
- Decide on minimalism versus maximalism
Maybe you prefer a contemporary, streamlined look for your event. If that’s the case, a table with uniform bowls and platters, equally spaced with plenty of room to breath is your best bet. But if you’d like to go all out and exude a sense of extravagance, an overflowing display of foods, garlands, candles, stringed beads, and even feather boas might be more your style. Whichever you choose, a bold design in either direction will really impress your guests.
- Only use high quality and stylish disposables
There’s a difference between squeaky white styrofoam and sleek, well-designed black plastic plates. Treat your guests to the best possible version of your throwaway dishware and cutlery. Also be sure to pick ones that match your event theme and colors.
