It can represent the ideal way to spend the breaks during conferences, seminaries, work sessions or business meetings.
How to organize a Swedish buffet
It may be a good idea to have a Swedish buffet at home when you want to have many guests but don’t have enough places at the table, when you want to have a party outdoors or have a children’s party, as well as when you want to prepare some of the dishes beforehand. The most popular items at these buffets are the sandwich platters because they are easy to make and you get a chance to be creative, by arranging the pieces on the same platter in different positions and different shapes to create a pleasant visual effect.
Nicely arranged and tasty platters will surely delight your guests. You can use small, fresh baked breads or sliced baguettes and fill them with ham, chicken and fresh vegetables. You can make more platters, depending on how many people you’re planning to invite. To maximize space, use less cutlery – another advantage of this buffet is that you can use your bare hands when eating the food. If you don’t have too much space, make sure you have many platters that consist of small sandwiches filled with different pastes, that you can arrange in the form of a pyramid. Garnish the sandwiches with salad, cucumbers and olives to enhance their appearance and taste.
Bqq catering are an easy option for special events, even though it can be rather boring when you try and make them yourself.

A Swedish buffet is easy to organize so that you too will be able to enjoy the food and the party.
