Go Vertical With Your Presentation

The food and beverages demand that you pay attention to horizontal surfaces. For exactly that reason, it creates immediate dramatic flair if you have vertical lines to keep your guests’ eyes moving around the room. On the buffet tables themselves, create height by hiding stacks of books under the tablecloth, allowing you to place food at different levels. This can be interesting on any table but it is critical on the dessert table! And don’t forget the ever-chic tiered servers and pedestal cake plates (which can be stacked for even more drama).
