Place Setting...Buffet Dinner?

>> Wednesday, June 3, 2009

I have not officially booked our caterer yet but we are very close to making a decision and I am about 99% sure that it will be a buffet style dinner. It's more cost effective for us and I love the way our favorite caterer styles the buffet to look beautiful! Now with that decision in mind, I bring the question, what do we do about the place settings? The caterer thinks it would be best to keep the plates warmed by the buffet tables. I think that's a great idea but now I can't decide on how to set the table. Should I go with a charger and napkin? Or should I keep it simple with a napkin & menu? Do you even have a menu if' you're doing a buffet? UGH all of these questions. I'm sure that FI and I will sit down and go over every option possible and make a decision but I'm curious about what some of you have decided to do?

I dont know the etiquette behind the menu..
I love the look with the napkin/menu.

We're having a buffet reception but it will be along the lines of finger foods so we won't have place settings or menus. In your case, I don't think the menus are needed since you're having the buffet. A charger would be nice with a napkin but that all depends on if your budget will allow for that.

We will have a buffet too. We put menus in the napkins like the picture with the pink napkins. I think the guest would like to know what kind of food we serve.

We had a buffet meal and didn't use chargers at the place settings. Just napkins, silver and drinkware. But I like the idea of putting menus in the napkins to shnaz the tables up. Also, don't forget about your centerpieces add that pop power you may be looking for.
