Rather than championing hors d’oeuvres and filled drinks on a buffet ready for pick up, we thought we’d highlight some fabulous food and beverage presentations that make a much larger impression on guests.
Dressed to Impress
These mobile human tables can be fantastic ways to (literally) carry your theme throughout your event, while adding entertainment pizzazz.
Obviously these are great food trays for themed parties and fundraisers, but these could also be great vehicles for silent auction or party favor displays as well.
As highlighted by fellow blogger, Satin & Snowflakes, a catering company called Tulips & Maple has begun to perfect the art of entertaining through catering. They’ve coined it ‘catertaining’. Check out the wall o’ hors d’oeuvres they had on display at one of their recent events. Such a unique, nearly Willy Wonka type of playful presentation.
This could be a great presentation option for kids, with the removable wooden (or could be colored plastic) spoons and the ability to have these line the walls in whatever shape or pattern you’d like.
And how about these exquisite additions to a client event, Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain recently held?
Champagne poured into and served right from her skirt. Genius (and still wildly elegant).
These could be wonderful additions to formal cocktail hours or galas. These could also easily become more futuristic (with a change of ensemble or addition of uplit glasses).
For that matter, these could also be used for more casual affairs (by pouring coke floats, filling ice cream cones, or making flavored sodas with pre-poured syrups- that would also be very colorful).
So many options!
