TOTW: Catering Tip

You don't have to be a bride to read The Knot. It truly is a wealth of knowledge for anyone planning an event! They have fantastic articles, pictures and projects that can be applied to a dinner party, wedding, birthday's very applicable! I was reading an article tonight on the top 10 catering trends when I found this week's T.O.T.W.: Play With Color. The Knot's contributing writer, Christa Vagnozzi, wrote:

"It's one thing to think in terms of color when it comes to linens and flowers, but for food? That's what's so exciting about modern-day wedding catering: If you want it, chances are a caterer can do it. Many chefs are coming up with unique ways to infuse color into their food to match the couple's signature hues, and we're not talking green mashed potatoes! If you're having a black-and-white wedding, consider serving Oreo cookies and mini ice cream sandwiches for dessert, or (even better) root beer floats. Like red and green? We know one caterer who put together hors d'oeuvres that included shot glasses filled with layers of edamame (green) and lobster trifle (red), and also tuna tartare (red) served in wasabi (green) sesame-seeded wontons for a cocktail hour."

If you are planning an event, speak with your caterer and let them know you are looking to incorporate your theme and/or color(s) into your menu. Give the caterer the details and pictures of your event and see what they come back with. You will be amazed!
