There's one thing guests always remember about a wedding — the food (was it the best meal of your life? Or was it so awful that you ordered a pizza later on?). But you don't need a ton of fancy food to make a good impression; the presentation can transform the simplest fare into a meal worth remembering for all the right reasons. Event designer and food stylist Kim Stoegbauer of The TomKat Studio teamed up with The California Milk Advisory Board to come up with these creative ways to make your food a spectacular part of your décor.
Bread and Butter
Take this dinner staple up a notch with a gorgeous rustic-inspired display featuring a variety of rolls paired with honey- and herb-infused butters.
Instead of a boring cheese platter, create delectable mini bites — pair each cheese with something sweet or savory, and serve those appetizers on silver forks.
Make your spreadable cheeses look wedding-worthy by presenting them like a deconstructed wedding cake on pretty pedestals and cake plates.
Add more visual interest by raising your appetizers above the table, like with these glass orbs that blend seamlessly with the décor.
Milk & Cookie Shots
The ultimate comfort food goes upscale with milk and cookie shots. With this wonderfully portable presentation, you can enjoy your treat as you mix and mingle with family and friends without having to juggle a plate of cookies and a glass of milk.
Ice Cream Stand
Nothing hits the spot on a hot summer day quite like an ice cream cone. Make a grab-and-go stand for ice cream cones so your guests can quickly get their fix.
Midnight Snack Box
Send each guest home with a snack box filled with both sweet and savory treats that'll appeal to all taste buds.
