The also has great tips about throwing a party. Tips that I liked most include serving food in vertical arrangements to free up space and prevent tables from appearing messy. I guess this is similar to what my wedding clients had when one of their food stations consisted of mashed potatoes (or sweet potatoes) served in martini glasses. They had a potato bar with all the toppings and it looked so fun on the table. They also had little shot glasses of tomato soup w/a triangle slice of grilled cheese on top. Another thing that popped in my head when thinking of vertical food displays is this unique alternative to a veggie platter…

Another genius tip is to label drawers and cabinets for when guest can serve themselves. Everyone doesn’t have room to have it all displayed buffet style so when encouraging guests to help themselves, make it easier for them. That way they don’t have to hunt you down to figure out where the silverware is or open a bunch of doors showing messy storage when aiming to find glassware….
