Next to the wedding ceremony, the buffet is the most scrutinized part of the whole event. Why? Mainly because of 1) the food you serve is going determine how memorable the event will turn out and 2) the décor will determine how much you spend and people will see it and hold you accountable to it. In both cases, people will have only one of two things to say: It was great! or It was bad.
In most cases, you want people to have the same positive experience they had during your I dos. Food may be the focus of the meal, but if the area its set in looks bad, that will greatly affect the way guests perceive the eating experience.

Décor Idea #1: Flowers
Manilyn Moreno believes that having flowers add both color and style in your buffet. She also adds: you can place the flowers between plates, turn them into dining table centerpieces (including buffet table décor) and even coordinate the color of the flowers to match the food being served. As a bonus, you can even put them in large glasses with water so they stay fresh.
Décor Idea #2: Leaves (Plastic or real)
Instead of having just a bland set up of tables, tablecloths, and servewares, add an extra tint of color on it with either plastic materials or real leaves. These also compliment and give life to the flowers and the buffet table as a whole. It is best not to use leaves in the dining table as they may cause injury to guests.
Décor Idea #3: Candles
Having a few lit candles scattered on the buffet and dining table serves a dual purpose: 1. It adds visual warmth to the dining atmosphere and 2. Keeps insects away from contaminating the food and the table itself.
Décor Idea #4: Group Items In Odd Numbers
Experts suggest grouping items on the buffet table in odd numbers because it is visually pleasing since it makes things organizable. And it indeed is!
