Affordable Buffet Guide for Your Next Big Event

Whether you are hosting a luncheon for 50 or a birthday bash for 200, a buffet is a great way to feed your guests and let them choose from a variety of different options. Buffets make it simple to accommodate food allergies and preferences and separate appetizers, entrees, and desserts. To set up an affordable buffet for your special event, read our guide below:

Ensuring your Catering Team Provides the Equipment

For a professional quality buffet, you need to ensure your caterer provides some needed equipment. The following are tools that are necessary to serve the food and keep it the right temperature: tongs, chafing dishes, sternos to power chafing dishes, match or lighter to start the sternos, utensils, plates, and water goblets. This serving equipment will ensure that your food is at the right temperature and served in a sanitary way.

Finding a Caterer Who Includes Linens

Linens for your big day come at a cost with most catering companies. Finding a caterer who includes these at no additional cost to you is a great way to create savings for your big day!
