Anniversary is a special moment. If the meeting takes place in the afternoon, a buffet with various snacks and sweets, a good wine and soft drinks will be arranged.
The buffet can be arranged on small tables, the dishes being placed on plates so that each guest is served alone, with plates, cutlery and towels available.
Snacks, beer or light white wines can be served with aperitifs, and at the table drinks according to your wishes, it is important not to abuse alcohol in any form.
The table invites as many people as they can sit comfortably at the table. The host will make sure that the table is properly arranged with cutlery corresponding to the dishes to be served. The main places of the table are occupied by celebrations or courtesy by the oldest person.
Candles, flowers or a green twig give a festive note to the table.

Choosing drinks
Our great humorist Al. O Teodoreanu, said: "Wines and foods are doomed to enhance each other's qualities. But between wines and foods there are established not only mutual and spontaneous sympathies, but also irreconcilable aversions. Only a crippling taste, for example, would be able to pour on a dry and dry wine after a baclava or a red wine capita after a sea crayfish or a crustacean.And you do not need to be a great initiate in the subtle arcades of the cellar and kitchen, to know that it is a general rule that in the succession of wines at a table start from dry to sweet, from weak to strong, from young to old.
That's not enough. It's a landmark, not a solution. "

White wines are served by holding the glass with the right hand, while the red wines are served by being placed in a special basket.
For white wines, tulip-type glasses are used, and for red ones, also with shorter and wider legs.
