Start off an event with some elegant inhouse mocktails or bite size finger foods. Cocktail hour gives your hungry guests something to munch on while some other things are happening, like more photos or a room flip.
Let your guests help themselves with a buffet. This tends to be a more budget friendly option. It allows for more food options and gives a more relaxed feel, encouraging mingling among guests. Plus, your extra hungry guests can always go back for seconds!
Bring an elegant feel to your event with a plated dinner. A plated diner provides a formal feel and a hassle free environment for your guests since it is a sit-down dinner service.
Family style is a hybrid of a buffet and a plated dinner. It is still a sit-down dinner yet provides a cozy atmosphere and promotes conversations among tables due to the sharing of food.
