Food As Part of the Entertaining Art of Your Event

Think food is just for eating?  Think again.  With the advent of cooking shows and celebrity chefs sweeping America, one thing is certain:  food at a special event must do more than just please the pallette.  It requires innovation, creativity and must also entertain as a working art.

Consider these fun enhancements to keep things fresh and guests talking about your event for a long time:

Re-Defining Cocktail Hour:  Passed Savory Cupcakes (mini meatloaf topped with mashed potato “icing” and rosemary);  Mobile Appetizers that include edible spoons or bowls (mini bread bowls)

Interactive Food Stations:  Guests love to be entertained – sushi stations, homemade tortilla-making and guacamole stations;  having a wine tasting with sommelier to assist guests with enjoying various wine varietals during cocktail hour.  etc.

Signature Cocktails Going Vintage:  Everyone’s heard of signature cockails at a wedding.  But how about taking those signature cocktails and making them go “retro”?  Consider Yahoo chocolate milk in mixers;  how about offering cocktail popsicles?

Casual/Comfort Foods: Even the most exclusive, high-end weddings enjoy a blend of “common comfort” for late night snacks such as a popcorn station, onion rings, french fries or even the increasingly popular food/snack “truck” for them to take a break from late night dancing with some comfort food.  It gives the event a breather with an element of relaxed fun.
