A buffet is the easiest way to serve a crowd—simply prep, set it out and let people serve themselves. Here’s how to pull it off with panache.
Utilize open space.
Create more space for party guests to serve themselves at your outdoor buffet by keeping all table sides open. The buffet will feel less crowded and you’ll be able to fill the whole table, keeping everything within easy reach.
Add height to your buffet.
Make your buffet table appear larger and more visually appealing by adding height. Here, a tall bouquet of flowers, a fruit-infused water pitcher and a tiered cupcake display add height in different places on the outdoor buffet table.
