Plating Food For Guests?

When I have guests over for dinner, I lay out plates and cutlery, point them to the food (either in serving dishes or still in the cooking dish), and let everyone serve themselves. If I want to be fancy I set the table and bring the serving dishes to the table, but I still let people load up their own plates.

It occurred to me the other day, though, that some people think you aren't having a real dinner party unless you plate the food yourself and serve it up to your guests like in a restaurant. I've seen this sometimes on certain TV shows or in magazines. I don't think I'll ever do that but was curious to see if anyone does. Have you ever plated food for your guests and served it to them individually?
