12 Unique Meal Suggestions for Your Event

Recently, a couple asked me what options could they consider for their buffet selections outside of the typical "chicken, beef or fish." The answer is: stations!  Instead of having one long buffet line of silver serving trays, go for 4+ stations that offer unique cuisine options and decorative motifs.  Check with your caterer to see what they offer and what they can accomodate.  Overwhelmed by options?  Select 2 stations that represent your hometown and 2 that represent your favorite vacation destinations. Here's a long list of suggestions to get you started:

  1. Bruschetta Station
  2. Macaroni & Cheese station
  3. Gourmet Pizza in mini sizes
  4. Slider bar
  5. Sushi station
  6. Sweet & Savory Crepes
  7. Mashed Potato bar
  8. Chicken Wing bar
  9. Pasta bar
  10. Stir-Fry station
  11. Yogurt Parfait bar
  12. Fajita or Taco station
