Watch us build out a grazing table cocktail party for 50+ people


If you’re looking for a fun, easy way to serve a crowd, consider a grazing table. A grazing table is a fantastic way to provide a variety of options for your guests!

We created an 8 ft. by 6 ft. grazing table for party. We started with a selection of bread and crackers, added meats, cheeses, veggies, fruit, nuts and sweets. To finish it off, we incorporated a few platters and dishes we purchased from Home Goods to hold dips, smaller food items, etc.

Also – we made this entire table in advance using 8 rimmed 19″ square serving trays from Amazon linked here. This allowed us to make the trays at our home and then bring them to home hosting the event later that afternoon.

Overall the grazing table cocktail party was a huge success! Our guests loved being able to try new foods (all from Trader Joe’s), and we had a great time chatting and eating around our friend’s amazing kitchen island. We will definitely be making another grazing table for future large parties!
