Elevated Buffet Stations

Posted by Meetinghouse on 9/13/18 11:10 AM

Elevate your buffets and food stations this Autumby re-purposing unique décor pieces and transforming any display into something the whole family will enjoy.  

Offer guests a beverage from your barrel top bar station. Inherently rustic and versatile, re-purposed wooden barrels are our favorite way to display classic Fall drinks. Lay a gingham runner under an urn of hot apple cider and arrange mugs within jars of jam and honey. We love rolling napkins with a garnish of cinnamon stick as a simple way to bring in the warm scents and textures of Fall that we love.

Create the perfect dessert station by utilizing a vintage wagon and draping a plaid fleece blanket inside of it to create the warm and rustic feeling. Display your guests’ favorite pies and jams here, serve on gold plates and platters, and embellish the inside of the wagon with seasonal flowers like dahlias, chrysanthemums, and sunflowers for additional fall color and texture. Finish up the display by adding old fashioned milk jugs, bushels of apples, and hay bales to the base of the wagon. Grandma’s classic apple pie is sure to stand out in this Instagram worthy setting. 

Of-course along with food service comes seating and dining and we love carrying over unique elements into that aspect as well. Tree stumps can be an excellent alternative for outdoor seating. Simply drape a soft linen over top or an outdoor patio cushion and you now have a comfortable spot to enjoy your cider and pie!
