So it is summer, a fast seafood bar is a great DIY. We have a fast shrimp with a fun sauce, using a very lose mash potatoes and lemon juice. Crabcake with something spicy for a dip. A fry bar with various seasoning on fries with dips, go play in the international flavor box. Oysters, clams, and mussels give a great ending to your food station bar with a mini salads in cups. Add citrus flavored mini cupcakes.
So, a little prep work. Keep your day to no more than 10 to 20 guests. Add lemons in baskets for your centerpieces.
So, it may take a million dollars for an event but not so much for a moment.
