Challenges of Creating a Magical Christmas Buffet

Balancing everything from your client’s needs, budget, and equipment limitations can become challenging. When trying to design the magical Christmas buffet you have in mind, you’ll need to remember a few crucial elements, including:


  • Equipment

  • Safety

  • Budget

The Rosseto Solution

With Rosseto, there’s a way to create a magical Christmas buffet using the best equipment. You can rest assured that you will get the best value for your money as you can use our equipment well beyond the holiday season.


After all, all Rosseto products are modular, offering optimal versatility and making them perfect for different venues and events.

Touchless Beverage Dispensers

Consider adding festive cocktails to our touchless beverage dispenser infusers for a little added holiday cheer. You can quickly and easily prepare a unique and classic mulled wine so that guests can serve themselves. Best of all, our favorite mulled wine recipe smells amazing, enhancing yet another one of the senses for an unforgettable experience.


Here is our favorite mulled wine recipe:


  • Combine the following ingredients:

    • 1 bottle of red wine

    • 1/4 cup of honey

    • 1 large orange

    • 6 whole cloves

    • 2 cinnamon sticks

    • 2 star anise pods

  • Put all that into a saucepan over medium heat for 15 minutes

  • Pour directly to the Rosseto’s touchless dispenser

Chafing Dishes

Cook a big traditional turkey or chicken and serve it on one big chafing dish. Choose from an extensive line of Rosseto’s chafing dishes and warmers to help keep your big bird warm and looking fabulous on your buffet line.

Rimmed Plates

Enhance our magical Christmas buffet with added touches like rimmed platters. Use some golden rimmed plates on every buffet table for that special added touch that’s meant to stand out.

Dessert Stations

Nothing says holiday quite like dessert. Why not make a Chocolate Raspberry Trifle on a beautiful desert glass plate? You can align all small dishes together and create a traditional holiday tree Tree shape to stay festive.


Use glass dishes so the colors of the dessert can be appreciated and add some more magic to the evening. Check out Rosseto’s clear glass serving ware to get inspired.

Candy Dispensers

A fun take on a dessert station integrates candy, which is always a magical and good option for everyone. Add some candy dispensers to your display and put some red, white, and green selections inside.


The fun doesn’t stop with your buffet line. It’s all about the intricate details of the entire event that makes a Christmas buffet memorable.


You can start by having plates with the traditional Christmas colors. The Ven Glass Collection boasts beautiful glass in white and red (the color of the snow and Santa’s clothes). You can use these dishes like glass cocktail bowls and plates. You could even add some cherry tomatoes and cheese with sticks to maintain the red and white theme in your appetizers.


Use a simple white tablecloth on every buffet table, and make sure that the napkins are all red!


You can create a beautiful and magical Christmas buffet by using only your imagination and Rosseto’s equipment.
