Dinner - Presentation

Preparation    - Menu     - Layout     - Cleaning

Congratulations!!! You've made it through the most difficult section, preparation and moved on to presentation. This is the area that is featured by most people, but we believe good preparation leads to good presentation.

One point to consider is the style of the serving dishes. Once again, this will be somewhat dictated by the location of your event. There are those who prefer the clear or colored glass type of serving dishes. Others prefer a ceramic dish. The choice is yours. Since this is a special event, we suggest refraining from the use of cheap plastic serving dishes if at all possible. Many people have told us they've picked up quite a collection over time discount stores. Some have even told us of finds they've made at dollar stores.

The next thing you might want to think about is the use of a center piece. While there is nothing wrong with this, consider the height. If you will have people sitting across from each other at the table, it is important not to block their view.

It is also a good idea to have set as much as possible on the table. Plates, silverware, drinkware, napkins and other items such as these can be set up before hand to prevent having to distribute them once your guests have arrived.
