F&B Idea: Action Stations

By Natalie Dupuis, April 1, 2016

Buffet-style ideas may be stationary, but they’re never sedentary. Shake up your F&B with these three trending concepts for action stations. 

> A custom margarita station is refresCraftBoxGirlshing and entertaining. Let guests choose from a few different tequilas, base flavors (traditional, mango or pomegranate, for example) and specialty salts for the rim. This idea from CraftBox Girls will inspire you. 

> Instead of pasta, have attendees create their own lo mein at a wok station with various kinds of noodles, vegetables and sauces. Bonus points for serving the dish in traditional Chinese takeout containers with custom-branded chopsticks.

> Shake up dessert with a chocolate bark-smashing station, like this one shown from Limelight Catering at a Chicago event. Choose your chocolates and give attendees a mallet to break off their own treat.
