Tip To Set Up An Appetizer Table
Set up the beginning of the tables with the plates, least expensive appetizers first, move on to the dips and chips, and at the end place the most expensive appetizers, the napkins, and eating utensils.
Tips For a Beverage
Make sure you have a beverage table separate from the appetizer tables. Place cups and glasses on each end of the table then coffee urns, one urns filled with hot water for tea. Next place a punch bowl on each end and in the center place bottles of water in a large bowl filled with ice and one either side a selection of soda' and fruit drinks.
