Preparing Tea Party Buffets with Tiered Serving Stands

Buffet-Set-UpWhen you are planning a tea party, the food you offer your guests can be part of a lovely buffet when you set it up with decorations and varying heights. It’s easy to do when you use tiered serving stands.

Choosing Your Menu

Your menu will certainly depend on what kind of tea party you are having and when in the day you’re having it. With tea parties, your food choices should always be finger foods sized just right to be placed on the saucer beside the tea cup. With that in mind, you want to be able to present those menu choices to your guests in the best possible presentation.

Tiered Serving Stands

The choices are numerous for the types of serving stands that can hold 3 or more food options. Lucky for you, I have narrowed it down to my favorites here. And they are my favorites for a reason.

The first one on the left presents the food in a stacked arrangement. You can present different food options on each layer and everything is easy to reach for your guests. This one I use when I have a large quantity of food.

The middle choice is simple, yet elegant. It works very nicely for my little extras that I am serving my guests. And the third choice on the right is what I typically put my sweets on. The clear simple design shows off the dessert and sweets to perfect.
