More from Company Meals and Buffets. Here's some advice on how to lay out your table for Buffets. I plan on using this for the next family gathering so my extended family won't all hover inches from me deep in conversation about their medical ailments!

How about paper plates?
Here's some of the advice on the page: You may want to serve from a sideboard, dining-room table, living-room table, dining-alcove table, or top of a low bookcase or chest of drawers.
OK, so if someone catches the drawers by accident, your underwear is suddenly on view. Pretty funny advice.
Today I'm helping serve 200 patrons at the Ethnic Food Fest. We actually serve in a U-shape, against 3 walls. Why isn't that layout here?
