What Kind of Set-Up Do You Want?
Grazing table styles are as varied as there are personal likes and dislikes. Make sure you discuss with us the look that you are after. Styling is the key that makes or breaks a grazing table. Some people prefer to have their food only on plates or serving boards. However, the most popular style is the “scatter table” look – we call it structured messiness. It may get a little messy once the guests have been picking for a while, but don’t worry! In this type of setting, the guests are too busy mingling and having fun and no one will notice the mess. Just make sure you take your selfies with the food BEFORE you let anyone at it!
Besides knowing how big your graze is, where it is held (at home, in a rented venue, indoors or outdoors) and the season, we also need to know the size of the table or counter on which to lay the food; whether you want a rustic, bohemian or a modern aesthetic and if you would like to hire extra props.
We can add a touch of whimsy and creativity, incorporating unexpected elements such as floral arrangements, candles, and unique props to enhance the overall look of your table. We’ll make sure your grazing table stands out and leaves a lasting impression on your guests. And don’t worry, if you’re not sure what you want, our team of styling experts will guide you every step of the way.
Forget plain and generic grazing tables; it doesn’t necessarily even need to be on tables. We can use wine barrels, window ledges, pool tables – we’re limited only by our imagination.
Are There Any Allergies?
It is very important to let us know about your guests’ dietary requirements and food preferences. Do you need options such as gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan? Do you have guests who are severely allergic to certain foods? Do you have guests who are coeliac? We need to know all these as it affects the way we prepare, pack the food for transport to the venue and display the food. And yes, we can come up with some tasty alternatives for them.
We also need to know if you have allergies such as hay fever – can you imagine the disaster for the guests to go near a table styled with pollen-reeking flowers? Armed with the right information, our experienced stylists can create a show-stopper for your event, no matter what your allergy.
