Designing a Table Setting

Last month, I was so pleased with my relaxed buffet presentation that I'm going to do something similar for my Eat Drink Man Woman Taiwanese dinner. The dishes I've chosen all lend themselves quite nicely to family-style service, and last week, I was lucky enough to find a really nice electric warming tray in perfect condition at my local thrift shop for the modest price of two dollars. I already have lots of beautiful Chinese-style serving dishes, and a decorative Chinese scroll to use as a table runner, so putting together an attractive buffet should be a breeze.
