There are so many fun ways to serve dinner at your reception. Long gone are the traditional days of long buffet lines and tracking down hundreds of guest entree selections! We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite styles of service we’ve seen at receptions around the Lowcountry.

Tapas are a great take on food stations. Hiding away all the less-than-perfect catering supplies (think pans, chafing dishes, and more) your guests walk up to a bar height table and are served a perfect chef-plated small plate. Some of our favorites include Shrimp & Grits, Uptown Meat & Taters, and our Bourbon Peach Pork Tenderloin Loin with Mac and Cheese and Green Beans (pictured).

Stations are a great option if you’re looking for a build-your-own dinner option. We love our mac and cheese station where guests select from a variety of toppings.

Served Meal with a Duo Entree

If you’re longing for a more formal sit down dinner than this is a great option for you. Each guest is individually served a beautifully plated entree with two proteins and sides. Typically a duo of a land and sea protein, this plate offers a little bit of something for everyone. The duo option also eliminates the need for you to track down each of your guests orders in advance and works without assigning seats!

Fun Food Displays!

One of our favorite twists on a salad is the rocks glass salad station! Rather than serving each guest a plated salad, we whip up mini versions of our salads in an old fashion rocks glass served with a mini appetizer fork. Your guests can grab and go, plus they’re so cute. 😉
