The hottest trend in catering? Food stations! They mix the best parts of buffets with the most elegant aspects of a sit-down dinner. Trust us, your guests are going to love this! Food stations take away the sloppy cafeteria feel of a buffet, but still keep all the delicious options coming. Plus, you get the fabulous presentation of chicly plated dishes and the fine attention to ingredients that makes a sit-down dinner shine. Take a look at the most fabulous ways to do food stations.

Get the party rolling with a sushi station. This always-popular idea offers perfect bites that are easy for guests to pop into their mouths while balancing a cocktail in the other hand.

Whether it is a wedding or any other event, it is the food you serve that can make and break it. Very interesting ideas here, and yes I completely agree that it is the plating that can make a dish look either appetizing and inviting or a complete disaster.
My husband and I got married in the morning and had a brunch buffet reception after. I made 3 kinds of quiche, homemade smoked salmon, bagels, cream cheese, deviled eggs, banana bread, strawberry bread and blueberry bread, fruit tray and vegetable tray, seafood pasta salad, homemade chicken and apple sausage, juice, coffee and sparkling apple juice for our toast. Our cakes were a white cake and chocolate cake from Costco. We had disposable cameras around so our guests were our photographers! We had beautiful hand tied bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages from the grocery store. We also had potted plants for decorations. Our wedding was at my parent’s house. They had a beautifully landscaped 1/3 acre back yard and it was free. We put up canopies to shade the tables including the food tables. We had a beautiful wedding and fun reception, one my husband and I could afford with no debt at the end of the day.
These ideas are genius. Thank you for sharing! I’m definitely going to have to pull from this list when it comes time to cater my wedding.
What beautiful fantastic ideas. There are several ones that I would love to use/coo. Thank you for sharing!
