Fountains are portable and designed for decoration as well as function. They use electricity, so you’ll want to make sure that you will have an outlet near your buffet table. There are two main kinds of fountains:
They’re used for chocolate fondue and range in capacity from to 20 pounds. They can have 3 to 4 tiers and are designed to keep the chocolate at the right temperature so that it continues to flow throughout theevening. They can also be used for cheese fondue.
Champagne or Punch Fountains
range in capacity from 3 to 7 gallons and make for excellent decorative additions to the buffet table. One important thing to consider is that they do not cool the liquid, and therefore ice is necessary. This can be problematic with champagne if it will be sitting out for a long time.
Carving stations are designed to provide an appealing place to cut roasted meats in front of the guests. Carving stations also ensure that the meat stays fresh and juicy, as it does not need to sit out in the air for long before getting onto the plate.
They come equipped with 0, 1 or 2 bulbs. The bulbs are designed to keep the meat warm, so if you purchase a carving station without a bulb the meat will not stay fresh as long
