@Chrysoberyl:  Do you have to have the table set? They could just grab a plate up at the buffet area and just have silverware and a glass at the table.

We did heavy apps. This decor won’t work for every design scheme/theme, but I liked it and it filled up our 10-person tables a bit more. Some napkins don’t have doilies because I waited til the last minute to order them and they were 12/pkg, not 15/pkg like the site said; those and the candles were very inexpensive off Amazon. Looks a little plain but things really filled up with plates, champagne flutes, drinks, coffee cups, cake plates, purses, phones, etc. Each napkin had 2 forks – one for dinner, one for dessert. Our tables looked like this:

 

 

 

 

This is the only picture I could find that showed how full tables got with everything – my MOH and my brother with his date!

I would set the table with cutlery, bread plate, glasses etc and place the napkin in the space where the plate would normally go. Rolling up the cutlery in the napkin can make the table look a little barren. Some couples also place the favor, menu, or place card in that space.

There have been many previous posts about buffet dinners where brides deal with the same issue so look for pics.

When Mrs. Candy Apple posted her recaps, I loved how here tables were set up, so I pinned a photo of it.  This is how we are planning to do ours.  We’re going to swap out the wine glass for a champagne flute and there will be an ice bucket with a bottle of champagne on each table.  That’s the only change I’m making.
