Buffet zone of the wedding – subtleties of decoration
A buffet at the wedding and a buffet at the wedding are two completely different concepts. Why mention – because many tend to confuse, and even confuse these designations. A buffet reception at a wedding is a stylization of a banquet in the spirit of a buffet.
But the buffet, or, as it is also called the welcome zone, is, let’s say, preparation and “familiarization of guests”. You must admit that it is not uncommon for a part of the guests to go to the wedding and the rest comes directly to the celebration. There are situations when the young people, along with the witnesses, are “godlessly stuck” at a wedding photo shoot, and the guests have already arrived at the banquet. So, so that your relatives-friends do not shift from one foot to another, and do not look with hungry eyes at banquet tables – defuse the situation with a buffet table. In addition, the welcome zone will help guests get to know each other better.
As you might guess, the central figure of the buffet zone is tables and tables served with goodies. The site www.svadebka.ws means not only sweets, but also a variety of cold snacks, slices, canapes, vegetable-meat and vegetable-fruit skewers. Although, the menu of the buffet area entirely depends on the imagination of the newlyweds, the preferences of the guests, as well as the theme of the wedding as a whole.
By the way, a sweet table can articles as a separate part of the buffet area. Macaroons, cakes on sticks, fruits under hats of whipped cream, cap-cake and muffins – choose any dessert, or better, all at once. True, do not forget, if your wedding is scheduled for the summer, then try to cover your goodies with glass caps – so guests can feast on, not insects and birds.
Buffet Zone Decorations
Simplicity is the key to success
The main and, perhaps, the only strict rule of the buffet zone – simplicity is the key to success. Wedding dishes should be light, compact, easy to carry and quickly eaten. Leave complex compositions, multi-tiered culinary art products requiring “artillery” of cutlery for the main banquet. At the table, guests still have time to sit up.
The design of the buffet area directly depends on the number of guests. For example, if there are about twenty people invited to your modest, “close circle” wedding, then you can easily get by with one or two tables. If your holiday with a touch of splendor, grandeur and more guests – the number of served surfaces is proportionally increased. It is possible that the help of additional staff in the person of waiters may be needed.
Give the way!
And, yes, one more main rule of a good buffet zone is free passage and approach. You should not have tables with a solid line, a regular circle, a square, and any other geometric and not only figure. Evaluate the scale of the “tragedy” – the buffet zone, and distribute the tables throughout the area so that your guests can move freely and calmly, without worrying about how much they catch on or brush something on the floor.
Reception for a wedding
Do not forget about such a nuance of the buffet area as an aperitif. Do not think, no one says that the guests by the arrival of young people should already be in a state of “half-fall”. Wedding portal Wedding.ws advises choosing “light” alcohol: sparkling wines, martinis, aromatic liqueurs. Do not forget that an aperitif is not only drinks “under the degree”. Juices, fruit drinks, fresh juices, mineral water – please guests with a variety of flavors and colors.
