Buffet setups need not be predictable.
With a little more effort and style, one can arrange the flatware to form an interesting shape. This will make your guests excited and whet their appetite.
The simple steps:
Gather your spoons, forks, knives, etc.
Arrange them in such a way that they will form a large leaf.
Keep adding on the cutlery.
If you feel the setup occupies too much space, make a smaller arrangement beside it.
