How to serve your reception meal

What are the most common serving styles? Let's discover together four approaches to service starting with the least formal.
 
In the family-style service the dishes are delivered to strategic spots along long tables and the guests pass them politely.
 
In the american service the plates are prepared in the kitchen and waiters bring them out to the tables.
 
In the French service the waiters prepare food on stands set up next to the tables and then serve individual plates
 
During the Russian service which is more formal, the waiters carry each course on a large tray and serve guests from it. Besides, they wear white gloves.
 
On the other hand the Buffet, offers your guests the chance to choose exactly which foods and how much of them they want. The combinations are infinite but it is very important to offer a wide mixture of aliments. Although the buffet is becoming more and more popular, the traditional reception meal provides for a sit-down service with a four-course dinner.
