oilfieldhoney:  I dont like my food to touch, so I like sectioned plates. I got some really, heavy duty stuff at party  in our colors. Everyone will get a mason jar at our wedding.

oilfieldhoney:  so place the napkin over the plate instead of beside it. I don’t know what your colors are but I would use a more colorful napkin than in this pic

Square bamboo plates, patterned napkins, greens

our table setting - wildflowers, bamboo plates, homemade cloth napkins, burlap runners w/ table numbers stenciled on end. love love love!

oilfieldhoney:  It can be done either way. The plates can be at one end of the buffet table, which I admit is more common. Or, they can be set at the place settings and the guests carry them to the buffet.

The advantage of setting the tables is that the guests don’t also have to carry their cutlery back from the buffet tables. You could compromise and set the tables with cutlery, place the napkin where the plate would be, then stack the plates on the buffet table.

I just remembered this idea for clear plate-you can get glass ones at the dollar store for $1

By using a doily with the guest’s name on it under the plate, it doubles as a placecard.

You can use whatever color doilies you want.

we used bamboo plates/utensils and mason jars for glasses.  they ended up really adding to the overall decor of our autumn wedding.
