Served With Style - Edition 7
Updated: Sep 8
EDITION 7 : A LA CARTE
Prior to COVID-19, more and more events were steering towards food stations rather than buffets or sit-down dinners. Especially when events have large numbers of guests; food stations could help with long, exhausted lines. Today, with gathering restrictions changing day to day, food stations are still permitted but must now be served by the catering team. Hopefully soon, things will resume to what we once knew and loved, where food stations will be just as popular as ever again!
I am passionate about creating strong, “in your face” displays. This design style helps to draw guests in and make events ever so inviting. In these images, arches over the station were created using ABS square plastic tubing, easily obtained at Home Depot, along with aluminum uprights and base plates used for support.
Normally found on patios, the roof is vinyl railing. Long 12-foot crossbars slid through the top and bottom of the railing for support and help to prevent any slogging in the center. I think signage is incredibly important, especially where there are lots of guests. In this design, simple large letters sit across the top to identify each station.
