For intimate gatherings and parties, nothing is easier or more enjoyable than a buffet. Here’s how to set up one like a pro.

Basic Tips on Buffet Table Arrangement

*Always put utensils at the end of the line, so your guests can pick them up last. This goes for beverages, too. This way nobody has to juggle glasses and utensils while serving themselves.

*Set the table so guests can serve themselves from both sides and walk around the table.

*Arrange platters and bowls around a spectacular centerpiece.

*Use service pieces creatively. For example, a soup bowl placed on a platter can be used for serving chips and dip.

*Reset your buffet table for dessert, or set up a separate side table.
