Decorate a great looking buffet table for all that Super Bowl food. It's fun, easy and your party guests will love it. This really adds some festive flare to your delicious party menu! Making this bleacher-style buffet table is a great way to get your guests in the party spirit and it heightens the presentation of your food to really showcase all your hard work! The supplies and directions below are specified for and 8 x 3 foot dining room table, but adjust the requirements to fit yours!
5 yards gold fabric (58" width) for tabletop and risers
9 yards blue fabric (58" width) for the table skirt and risers
24x40-inch plywood board (1/4-inch thick)
16x30-inch plywood board (1/4-inch thick)
Staple gun & staples
Books to give risers height
2 dozen blue and gold pompoms
Step 1: Cut a length of gold fabric to fit your tabletop, allowing for an approximate 6-inch overhang on all sides. Place the gold fabric on the table. (Pro Tip: You may want to tape the ends of the gold tabletop fabric to the underside of the table, as it tends to slide around while skirting.)
Step 2: Cut a length of the blue fabric to fit around your table for a table skirt. The length of fabric should be the same measurement as the perimeter of your table, plus a couple of inches for overlap.
Step 3: Use straight pins to attach the blue fabric to the gold fabric. Fashion this however you wish, by folding over the top edge or pleating the fabric, to ensure that the pins don't show, and the skirt has a nice drape to the floor.
Step 4: Cover the plywood boards in blue or gold fabric, and staple the fabric to the board's underside to secure.
Step 5: Pile books in the center of the table to make a 2-inch high support for your bottom riser. (Pro Tip: Encyclopedia books work great, as they are identical in size and a couple of books is all you need for a sturdy base. Bricks are a good alternative to the books.)
Step 6: Place the 24x40-inch plywood board on the books. Pile more books, 2 inches high, in the center of the bottom riser, and place the 16x30-inch plywood board on top of those books.
Arrange pompoms around the perimeter of the bottom riser.
Step 7: Place football candy dispensers at the four corners of the top riser.
Step 8: When ready to serve, set your platter of Stuffed Pizza Burgers on the top riser. Place bowls of burger toppings on the bottom riser, around the outer edge.
Step 9: Put Maple-Bourbon Glazed Chicken Wings, and platters of pasta, potato, and green salads on either ends on the table, along with team color plates, utensils, and napkins.
