Did you enjoy all the beautiful Spring Fling Tablescapes on Thursday? Now it’s time for some ideas for Salad Bar Party decorations. Plus, I’m sharing six menu items for Salad Bar at Spring Fling Dinner Party.
On Thursday, you saw a glimpse of the potting table I used to set up the salad bar.
Setting up the Supper Club Party in the Greenhouse was so fun, and adding vintage garden decor to the salad bar made the two tables work seamlessly together.

Ideas for Salad Bar Dinner Party
First, the DIY Potting Table is located beside the dining table and is a convenient spot for all the yummy salads being served.
I added vintage gravy boats and mini salad dressing boats to the table. This allows guests to add salad dressing at the bar or take some back to the table in small proportions.
A rustic metal candelabra and DIY birdhouses add a vintage garden style to the potting table.
In addition, a vintage wicker basket filled with tulips sits on a chippy green stool used as a riser. Another idea is a basket with a mix of greenery and vintage dishes.
Spring Fling Supper Club Dinner Party
Each month our virtual Supper Club Series has a themed party with table setting ideas, a full menu and recipes to complete a fun dinner party.
These ideas are intended to inspire you to plan your Spring entertaining.
You can still see this month’s Spring Fling Table Ideas if you missed it.
Today’s salad bar ideas will inspire you to create a garden-inspired dinner party.
Items for Salad Bar
If you are planning a salad bar, there are many items for decorating and setting up.
The serving dishes for the salad bar should be set at varying heights. This allows all items to be visible as guests fill their plates.
I like to use cake plates and risers to elevate platters and bowls. You can also stack dishes to raise the serving bowls and plates.
You can add beverages to your salad bar or create a separate beverage station if space is limited.
Plates, bowls, napkins, and utensils can be placed on the salad bar or at each setting.
I chose to set the Spring Fling table with full place settings, and guests can take their plates to the bar and fill them individually.
Salad Bar – Cobb Salad Stack Recipe
Next are the ideas for the salad bar menu and items for salad bar recipes.
The Cobb Salad Stack with Chicken is a delicious main dish salad bar option. I shared the full recipe on Monday.
It’s light and refreshing but hearty enough for a main dish.
Creating a stacked salad adds a beautiful presentation to the items on the salad bar.
