How to Create the Perfect Buffet Set Up for Big Dinner Parties

Gearing up for a season of holiday parties? Make sure your dining room is ready to accommodate a bevy of merrymakers and enough dishes to keep them full. To help you get in the spirit stress-free, we’ve compiled a few tips that will get you host-ready in no time.

We love a good magazine-ready spread: dishes filled with colorful and delicious food all arranged expertly on a stylish sideboard or server. While the focus should undoubtedly be on your expert culinary abilities, it can’t hurt to make sure your furniture garners a few compliments as well. Sideboards and servers can make a big difference when it comes to showing off your hard work—they give you extra surface area and lots of valuable storage space below. Giving your wine glasses, dishes, and cutlery a centralized home will make it easier to setup for your party and ease the final cleanup.

To get the most out of your server, get your dining room setup arranged in host mode. Place your server away from your table and dining chairs to manage the flow of guests. That way, you’ll avoid traffic jams between the people getting their food and those sitting down to dig in.

If you’re a frequent dinner host, then you know all about the extra seating room table leafs can provide. They allow your table to easily expand to accommodate the extra guests at the drop of a hat. An expandable table will also impress your visitors with your thoughtful foresight and your keen eye for design and style. Say goodbye to banishing your guests into another room when you run out of seats!

There’s also an art to what goes on the table. Conserve space and eliminate clutter by placing all of your dishes on the buffet, and encourage guests to serve themselves in a left-to-right direction. Think of your food setup as a journey. Dishes and cutlery should go first, followed by the salad or starter. Next should go the main. End the table with condiments. Place all beverages on side tables away from the buffet so that people aren’t centralized in one place while they’re serving themselves.

With the help of the RoomPlace furniture, a little bit of planning, and a proper setup technique, you can easily cultivate the perfect setting for your next dinner party.
