There are so many inventive ways to use a tiered cake server. I love this presentation of fruit salad, but think of all the possibilities!
We all know about the food truck, but what about a bar truck for your outdoor fall gatherings? It adds an instant fun factor.
A super simple way to entertain is to rent a food truck that fits your theme. Add tables in front for seating and voila—no extra servers or dishes!
Display food on multiple levels to make it more visually appealing. Plus, the simple technique gets a lot of mileage out of a small tabletop.
Create your own wine and cheese pairings; it’s a lovely presentation and a party waiting to happen!
For a beautiful way to display and chill drinks, freeze fruit slices, leaves or anything you want in a chunk of ice and use it as an ice bucket.
Use small cocktail cups to serve individual portions of dip. No double-dipping concerns here!
Instead of paper, use eco-friendly, disposable bamboo plates. They look way more chic and are substantially sturdier.
I am calling this new concept a food runner! Place boards down the middle of the table, and pile the food on. It’s a whole new version of family-style dining.
While the weather is still nice and seafood is at its best, consider a seafood boil with drawn butter spread out simply on newspaper. Guests will love the ease and simplicity.
Instead of just a normal charcuterie board, serve an entire meal in this artful fashion— it makes clean-up a breeze.
If you don’t have a proper bar outside, never fear! Use something fun for the legs and place a unique piece of reclaimed wood across the top for a makeshift bar.
