I’m heading to my parent’s house for Thanksgiving this year. It has been a few years since I spent the holiday at my parents’ place, so I’m looking forward to it.
Our Thanksgiving dinners are usually served in a buffet style. This makes the whole process run smoothly and keeps the table free of serving dishes. The table is set with utensils and glasses, but the plates and food are stationed at the the buffet. It is an efficient way to serve your guests, especially if you are hosting a larger party.
Martha Stewart has some helpful tips on setting up a Thanksgiving buffet. Some of the tips:
2. Position the buffet table away from the wall, so that guests have access from all sides.
6. Lay out food in a logical order: entrees before side dishes.
7. Save space for food by displaying low arrangements.
If you’re having a party of six or more this year, a Thanksgiving buffet may be something to consider for your meal.
