Table decoration: how to use a buffet

Whether for a birthday or a simple meal with friends, the buffet is a good solution when there are many of you and you want a convivial meal where everyone will find what they are looking for. But building a buffet is not an easy task because it has to be not only aesthetic but also practical for each guest. So before you start, take a look at the essentials, our decor tips and advice!

Offer a cutlery pot


Saber Similarly, you will make sure to offer different pots that allow you to find all the cutlery necessary for the meal. Create a pot for knives, another for forks, and two more for spoons, large and small.

Don't forget the towels


Alinéa And to avoid embarrassment for your guests, consider having a towel dispenser that your guests can easily find. Do not hesitate to increase them if your buffet is large.

Cutting bread

Easy to serve dishes


Alinéa The buffet can quickly turn into a nightmare for your guests if the dishes presented are not easy to serve. So make it easier by offering small containers such as verrines or bite-size bites that are practical to grab.

Divided spaces


Paragraph To facilitate the service, you will take care to create different spaces on your buffet. For example, plan to dedicate a space to the café by offering cups, thermo hot and sugar. Dividing the spaces will also help not to focus everyone in one place.

Think of those who don't drink coffee

Let your guests choose
