You walk into a party, greet the host, say a few well-timed pleasantries and then do the inevitable: make a bee-line for the food.
These days, the food will most likely be found in the form of a grazing table.
And what’s a grazing table, you ask? Only the hottest trend in party catering. Equipped with a small napkin and the latest local bites, you can be free to mix and mingle with no place cards attached. Below is a list of some of our favorite table arrays for your perusing pleasure.

2. Bliss Boards
New South Wales
Grazing tables are all the rage, but sometimes they can be hard to navigate. Bombarded with the latest variety in haute cuisine, you may be wondering what certain items are and if you will like them. But you’re too afraid to ask. Bliss Boards come with all the class of the fanciest setups possible with many of the fanciest food items seen across tables. However, they have a sneaky way of inserting commonplace items like sausage links, fried chicken sliders and pizza pies into the mix so that when stepping outside of his or her comfort zone, no guest feels too far from home.
Most grazing tables we find on Instagram and Pinterest are variations off the traditional cheese and charcuterie, with accoutrements to match the season. But what if your party’s theme centers around a different culture? Cue Happy Shower Tokyo. Specializing in high-end baby showers and weddings, Happy Shower Tokyo’s grazing tables will feature gourmet chocolate and macaroons alongside tea-soaked eggs and tropical fruits you are unlikely to have seen before.
