The Table Setup
↠ goal is to create both a useful & beautiful setting
↠ Have a “creative theme” in mind, have direction, and follow it. Will your setup be elegant? Rustic? Bright & fun? A certain color palette?
↠ use symmetry
↠ candles are a must (lights in general💡)
↠ Fill with flowers! 💐
↠ Individual Menus on plates
↠ details are everything
↠ Don’t forget, have fun with it!
Here’s a quick look book I put together for inspiration. Cheers!🍷
↠ Goal is to present all the eats, drinks, and sweets of the night in a unique way!
↠ Presentation is everything!
↠ Details make everything that much better
↠ trending: Calligraphy/hand written menus (it’s tough, but it looks so good!✒️)
↠ Match the creative direction your going towards, always.

Elegant + yummy platters:
↠ goal is to create visually pleasing and of course DELICIOUS mixed platters for guests to munch on.
↠ don’t be organized. Platters tend to look better when things are NOT perfectly straight🍐🍠🍇🍯🍷
↠ use little bowls for sauces/olive oils/olives… Etc.
↠ be a good host & refill when nessecary ☺️
↠ just get creative with this one!
platter look book
↠ goal is to… Satisfy every sweet tooth in the room!
↠ I am in looove with these pretty & yummy layer cakes. They are casual and not too over the top, but still look really nice (and look pretty nice to eat too 😋🍰)
↠ presentation is a must here too. Display the dessert proudly, it is definitely a favorite part of the night!
↠ you can display the names of the cake with calligraphy/handwritten ways to match your menus! ✒️
↠ think out of the box: use flowers, greens, herbs, fruits, + more to decorate your cakes! Be CREATIVE 🌿💐🍂🌸🍐🍠🍋🌷
