Make your soup buffet family style; place pots for two or three soup types on a sideboard nearby. Choose pots that are big enough to serve the number of guests. Cast iron and clay pots can hold the heat ofr a longer period of time.

Match your bowl to your soup type. Choose a wide, shallow bowl with a flanged rim (officially called a soup plate) for more formal, sit-down gatherings. For casual get-togethers (like this one), choose bouillon cups, round cereal bowls, or soup mugs.

Bring out two types of spoons: the cream soup spoon, which is a bigger spoon that you sip from the side and which holds thicker soups; and the bouillon soup spoon that is used for clear soups and consommes.
