The Ultimate Christmas Buffet

When friends and family come over for Christmas, a buffet is the way to go.  You can prep everything ahead of time, guests can serve themselves, and if someone brings a dish, you can just set it out on a beautiful platter.  The key to a great buffet is how you decorate the table.  It should be appealing to both kids and adults. Whether the food is store bought, pot luck, or homemade, beautiful dishes make everything appetizing!
1.  Start with a red table cloth as your base.
2. Stack up your Christmas dishes at the beginning of the buffet.
3. Roll your silverware in green and white napkins and leave it on the end of the buffet so guests can take it after they have served themselves.
