Buffet Tips for Holiday Entertaining

Hosting holiday parties is a great way to welcome friends and family into your new home and celebrate the season. Food and drinks might be the typical highlight for the party and if you’re hosting a party greater than ten guests, you’re much better off opting for a buffet style dinner rather than a formal sit-down dinner. Hosting a buffet allows for much more socializing which is great when you have quests that are meeting for the first time or see each other seldom. It also allows you to enjoy your party as it creates a more relaxed atmosphere, and since all the work is done before, you’re freed up to socialize rather than prepping and plating each course throughout the dinner. Decorating your holiday buffet is the final touch that brings the festive spirit to your party. Here are some inspiring holiday buffet decorating tips you can use to celebrate the season this year in your new home:

If you love entertaining with a large punch bowl in your new home, consider placing some additional bite-size appetizers you can pair well with your punch flavour. Hanging some white and silver holiday streamers complements your silver and white flatware and serving ware and creates some enticing attraction to where you’d want your guests to visit first.

Having a drinks table separate from the food table is a great way to compartmentalize your offerings. Using different shaped plates and bowls, and creating height with the dishes themselves really helps to create an attractive and delicious spread. Serving pre-filled wine glasses is a delightful way for guests to serve themselves and feel welcome at your new home holiday party.

This is an enchanting way to decorate your holiday table using simple pieces including burlap and Christmas lights you may already be using elsewhere in your new home. Incorporating lots of silver and sparkle to your holiday table will have your guests gasping with delight.

A sweets table is such a decadent way to offer baked goods for guests at your holiday party. Try using pastries with red and white icing sugar to go well against your new home holiday décor. Displaying your dessert table with some holiday accents and offering varying heights with various serving ware, pastry styles and a tall vase like this filled with fake snow and reusable cranberry bud twigs pulls everything together.
