Stylish Buffet Design

From sleek chic to found vintage, I have a round up of beautiful buffets.  You may not always have a dessert table at your celebration, but you do have snacks and drinks, right?  These inspiring displays show you how to serve with style.
Grab an aperitif from a modern-rustic display like the one here designed by Viridian Design Studio seen on Elizabeth Anne Designs.
Serve a delicious rustic Italian meal from an old farm table, with simple white dishes, cutting boards, and fresh herbs as the accents.  Don’t forget the chalk board menu! (Sunday Suppers)
Sample some cheese with ease – the juxtaposition between the wood table and the delicate gauze covering is true French style.  The monocromatic color tones make the cheese shine, and yet they become part of the design. (Sunday Suppers)
You’ll need a cocktail to help wash down the cheese! This modern layout of a make-your-own-martini bar, lets everyone please their own palette. (Sunday Suppers)
You can’t deny sweets altogether, so set up a fun S’mores Bar.  This layout on Postcards and Pretties combines modern lines with rustic baskets.
For an all-out rustic look, present your bounty in galvanized containers.  Add a touch of softness with a vintage-inspired floral fabric, or lace runner.(found on Elizabeth Ann Designs)
Bring out the paint-chipped furniture and thrift store finds to mimic this vintage-inspired display.  This look is so fun because you can get creative with your use of old items. (by Marry You Me for The Sweetest Occasion)
This final buffet is pure country with it’s farm table, linen table cloth, old crate, and wild flowers.  Who wouldn’t want to linger here for a while? (Southern Living)
