Try a little bit of everything!
If you're having a small get-together or a big Friday family meal, you might consider putting together a grazing platter. Both beautiful and functional, a grazing board adds a level of activity and variety to your meal. Everyone can pick and choose what they want!
The down-side is that they can be very time-consuming and expensive to make. Usually including a smattering of cheeses and deli meats, it can take a long time to meticulously set out in an aesthetically pleasing way.
In addition, a classic grazing board doesn't provide your guests with a solid meal, rather a large selection of entrees. Some very creative people on TikTok have addressed that problem and have taken the grazing platter to a whole new level.
Inspired by TikTok's famous nachos table, another user, @mike_kachowski_ has posted their version of the innovative meal platter: A pasta grazing table.
In the video, you can see that the table is prepped, wrapped in tinfoil to make for a simple clean up after the feast. To create a base, the college students prepare various kinds of pasta - some spaghetti and penne can be spotted.

The Tiktok also shows several pots on the stove, representing all the delicious pasta toppings being prepared.
The pasta is then poured out onto different areas of the table, eventually creating a savoury ring to hold the plethora of sauces. They then topped off the Italian selection with a sprinkling of slices of herbed garlic bread.
