A uniquely beautiful food display requires you to think a bit outside of the box, or – more appropriately – the buffet table. If you’re stumped for ideas, take a look below at a few interesting looks we’ve come across that would be perfect for a get-together or dinner party commemorating a special occasion.
We love how this wine barrel is used as a table in this rustic-chic set up. Simple linen cloths and burlap keep it chic. A couple of lemons or other fresh fruit can then be used to add a fresh pop of color to a spread of gourmet meat, cheese, and crackers.
Trays fashioned from actual tree stumps can also be used to achieve a gorgeous rustic-style buffet. Not to mention, a tree stump tray can double as a cutting board!
If you’re really looking to surprise your guests with a whimsical scene, see if you can lose the table all together! These suspended food trays are sure to be a conversation starter that will keep guests moving and mingling for hours.
We love this look featured on Hostess With The Mostess. Individual servings of veggies and dip on a tiered cupcake stand add lots of visual interest, especially with a stand that has swirling wrought iron and sparkling crystal-like accents!
These stunning serving platters were created with glass containers holding delicate water lilies and colorful pebbles. What a wonderful way to add an elegant touch of nature to a modern-style spread of hors d’oeuvres!
Don’t be afraid to get a little creative with the food itself, too! For a more causal get-together, try a fun and artistic spread of gourmet meats and cheeses like this adorable owl.
