Advice for Thanksgiving buffet set-up?

springleaf | Nov 11, 2011 08:44 AM

I wish I had cooked for more dinner parties, so this is a basic question, but how can I set up the buffet so that it is easy for my guests? Cranberry sauce and gravy on the dinner table, but everything else on the buffet (I'll just set up on the kitchen counter)?

I was thinking of serving a salad, but should I leave that out of the meal since it will take up valuable space on the dinner plates (I'm kind of joking, but...I know that I want to have plenty of room for the good stuff)? Just now realizing I don't have a lot of serving dishes and proper utensils, but I think I'll just serve casseroles direct from their baking dishes.
