    I attended a BBQ buffet and the dessert was bread pudding. They placed the BBQ sauce next to the bread pudding. It looked like caramel sauce. Yuck!

    Hi I ‘m having a Superbowl party but I like to do it kind of gourmet buffet style. I’m using elegant platters and renting dishes, glasses and cutlery to make things a bit easier. Your tips are excellent I agree with one comment. I do not like to put condiments on the table in their bottles. That is a bit too casual for me. I didn’t think of food cards so I’ll look for them. Your other tips are excellent. too. Thank you,

    1. Hi Joanne, I completely agree and understand not wanting to place condiment bottles directly on your buffet table. Sounds like you’re gonna have a fabulous spread at your party!!
