I had one bride who combined her appetizers as her table centerpieces, saving her some money and making the pre-reception snacks nice and handy for her guests! She had a tray of fruit, cheese, bread and wine beautifully arranged on the tables. Her guests didnt' have to stand in line at an appetizer buffet table. They could just sit at the tables, visit with each other, while helping themselves to the foods. It was inexpensive yet classy. Non-alcoholic wine could be substituted, or could be omitted altogether if a bar is available.
