Food Stations or Grazing Tables?

What are food stations?

Food stations are best described as a group of mini-buffets placed throughout the reception area, each offering a unique kind of fare and often manned by an actual chef. For example, a raw bar, comfort foods, etc.

What are grazing tables?

It’s a table piled high with delicious antipasti, charcuterie and dips! Creating an informal vibe. Styling is the key to nailing a the grazing table trend. Choose rustic wooden boards, marble slabs, glass platters or porcelain bowls to wow your guests. Make sure to discuss your vision with your caterer or stylist to get the look you want. Add signage, flowers, herbs and greenery for a show-stopping look.
