I can’t find a picture of it, but I’m looking at napkins flat at each setting, with our candy buffet bag on top and then a cootie catcher on top of that. Kinda like this:

Not sure if the silverware will be at the tables or at the buffet at my venue. I think at the table. The extra glasses are water, wine and champange. I guess they could have one for sodas too, but people usually get drinks and sodas at the bar.

This is a great question. I am also doing a buffet with no chargers, but I am also probably not going to do table wine service – people will just get their drinks at the bar. So should we not have glasses on the table? Does that look weird?

I like the look of whitesonnet’s photo with the favors on top of the napkins. I will probably do that with our mini bamboo steamers which will be filled with tea bags.

I am also looking for ideas.

We will be having gold chargers and our linens are white with gold embroidered overlays, and gold napkins. That is as far as I have gotten.

In answer to your question about why three glasses, it is because one is for water, one is for wine, and one is for champagne.

My mom wants all the place settings to already be out on the tables already. Like, full ones! So people take their plates from the table to the buffet.

We’re not doing anything similar to the previous posts…that I know of yet. I haven’t really thought of anything for the tables yet except for the centerpieces. I have thought about putting something like this on their place setting saying something like “Love is sweet, treat yourself to our candy buffet” or something along those lines.

We’re doing buffet and having people get their own wine/drinks from the bar but we’re going to put water glasses on the table.  We’re not doing champagne so it will only be one water glass for each place setting.
