Get some mouth-watering inspiration for interesting and creative food stations that will wow your attendees.
Food stations can be an excellent idea if you want to do things differently or if your venue choice doesn’t have enough space for a formal seated service. You can make these stations as compact or open as you like, it just requires a bit of creativity. Here are some fun examples to give you some food station inspiration and allow you to wow your guests with minimal stress on the event budget
This gourmet grazing station is eye catching and fun to entertain your guests as well as spark conversation over dessert! Individual donut hangers allow you to alternate and add different flavours together and you could also incorporate donuts in your theme colours to make it stand out further. Plus, the creative types could recreate this themselves for a frugal alternative for different functions.

If you are looking for savoury snacks to serve, this pretzel bar is perfect and not only offers the salty kind hanging up but has some chocolate dipped options below, as well as other customisation options. It is both interactive, delicious and can definitely get attendees talking.

Veggies and dips are out, shooters are in! With this quirky idea you can provide a range of different vegetables with their own dips in individual cups to avoid lurking around the salad bar to go back and double dip! Plus this way, attendees can grab their shooters and focus more on networking than a clear line to the salad table.

Food Art Dessert Bar
This stunning idea turns an up-lit dessert table into a work of art that attendees can select and choose from! Be warned it is so artistic you might find guests don’t want to disturb the display. Then again they do look delicious so will they be able to resist?
If you are short on space, staggered bars are a fantastic idea and can also help separate different food elements for your station, for example this bruschetta bar which has a range of wines, meat, cheese and bread for attendees on different levels.
