Event Buffet Planning

Before an event, we consult with you to determine your style, tastes, themes, favorite foods, season and budget. We develop a custom menu, and once the menu is determined we get to work on the planning and presentation! We have already decided which platters, bowls, plates coordinat with this clients’ style. We analyze the # of people, flow of traffic and menu items to decide what goes where.
Discussing with Haley… we ran into a minor problem and had to think quickly on our feet!

We have to consider which items must remain hot, what items are most popular, and how quickly we want to re-fill the plates. 

we do a lay-out of items flat on the table, then begin to add risers and levels.

the style now is more clean-lined. Not all the fabric bunching around hidden boxes you saw 10 years ago.

we use a combination of glass, acrylic, metal, mirror and black painted wood boxes for decor.

Linens were provided by others. Center (rose) floral arrangement was provided by others. We felt the buffet design needed more yellow elements so we stacked black rocks, meyer lemons, snap dragons, baby’s breath, and alstromeria flowers in tall rectangular vases. 

water-punch, slightly lemon flavored, slightly sweet and oh-so-refreshing!

white candlesticks, black candles, chandelier prints, all provided by Savory Event Catering. We also provided the black screen-divider. Paper fans provided by the event planner and design company.

these 1″ thick acrylic round shelves hold the parfaits. We stacked on a printed wood box, and had back-lighting. It looked great at night time, adds a great ambience to the space. 

Candles and crystal tea-light holders– which really sparkle!

Our wonderful Haley! We couldn’t do this without you!
