Ideas For A Salad Bar Party & 6 Menu Items

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.

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.

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.

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.
