Party Time with a Lazy Susan

If you are thinking of throwing a summer barbecue or a summer party using a Lazy Susan, this is going to be a fantastic idea. The first thing you need to do is decide how many people are going to be attending your summer party and the location. You want to get a headcount, because you will need to be sure that you get enough food and utensils for your party. One thing that almost everyone forgets – how is the food going to be served? This is where you need to decide if you plan on doing more of a buffet style? Or does having an actual sitdown meal sound better?

You need to think of the layout and how all of your guests are going to manage best. A buffet is fantastic if you plan on having a large amount of people, because you can then space all of the food out. A Lazy Susan is going to be handy, but more than likely you will need to have more than one. By using multiple Lazy Susan’s, you will be able to utilize your space more efficiently and your guests will be able to move quickly through the line.

  • All of the side dishes can have separate dishes where they can or cannot be on a Lazy Susan. This is really at the discretion of the host. You don’t want to overdo it with Lazy Susan’s, but you also want to have enough.

Creating a nice dinner where everyone can sit down at the dinner table is also another great way to use a few Lazy Susan’s. Generally, you will only need two or maybe three Lazy Susan’s for a sit down dinner. Situations like this do not require too much planning, because this could be a regular thing for your family. Smaller dinner tables are great for these types of barrel tops, because it is easy to serve a casserole or even a simple meal such as tacos.
