Buffet-style ideas may be stationary, but they’re never sedentary. Skip the traditional pasta or meat carving stations and shake up your F&B with these three trending concepts for action stations.
- Surprise guests with a chocolate bark-smashing station for dessert like this one shown from Limelight Catering at a Chicago event. Choose your chocolates and give attendees a mallet to break off their own treat.
- For the main course, have attendees create their own lo mein at a wok station with various kinds of noodles, vegetables and sauces. Bonus points for serving the dish in traditional Chinese takeout containers with custom-branded chopsticks.
- A custom margarita station is refreshing and entertaining. Let guests choose from a few different tequilas, base flavors (traditional, mango or pomegranate, for example) and specialty salts for the rim.
