Setting Up A Buffet Table

on October 7, 2013

Wedding Reception Table

No matter what the event is that I’m doing.  I like to make sure that the food table can be seen by all, from their seats.  I like to use different elevation points on any buffet table.

Unlike when your eating at your own table you wouldn’t want the centerpiece or pieces to block your view of the guests seated across from you. Doing a wedding reception, I prefer to set the table off to one side, making sure nothing takes the attention away from the bride and groom.

At the request of the bride and groom, I had a set budget but they allowed me to do whatever I wanted. The church had plenty of buffet tables. I believe I pulled off a spectacular table. I always incorporate food as the centerpiece of any table and for a soft light, votive candles hid throughout.

The only disappointment was the lighting in the church. The photographer the bride and groom hired to take all pictures, including this one of my table, was sent to me after the event.
