- Get Architectural – Create levels and dimension by stacking and staggering glass blocks, acrylic risers, and boxes wrapped in coordinating paper. You can find glass blocks at craft stores, as well as home improvement stores. Acrylic frames also work well for lower levels. Just take out the cardboard insert. You can use any cardboard or wooden box you may have, and wrap it in wrapping paper (or paint the wooden boxes to match the tablecloth).
- Use Pedestals and “Towers” – You can lift up your platters by simply placing on top of clear cylinder vases, or solid colored ceramic vases. Dress it up by wrapping ribbon around the vase. Use sticky craft ‘dots’ to secure the platter to the vase.
- Think Outside the Tablecloth – Don’t just rely on tablecloths to cover your buffet. Use interesting textures and ideas such as burlap, moss sheets, flower petals, rows of twig runners, chalk board runners, or mirrors. Use the tablecloth as a base for these decorative toppers.
Good luck setting up your next buffet table!
