Edible Centerpiece

With Spring approaching and special events season beginning, thoughts begin to enter into our minds as to how the event is going to be organized and executed.

In this series of posts I will be sharing with you some of the things that I have done with weddings.

This post will focus on the center piece of the food table, All of the things I will be showing you will be very easy to do.  The cost of event planning is sky rocketing so whatever you can do yourself helps to keep the cost under control.

Here are two fruit toppers that I use a lot they sit on top of a fruit tower generally three tiers high.

You can see the different layers of fruit on the tower. It is all done with trays and cake stands.  I have used bamboo platters and glass cake plates for this tower.  As you can see, I layer everything when it comes to food presentation. Your food should look as appealing as possible because the first part of your guest loving your food is the way they perceive the food will taste.

The fruit dip that you see at the bottom of the tower is nothing more than plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon organic,raw honey, and fresh strawberries whipped up in the food processor.

This tower not only brings taste and freshness to the table but also color.

In the back ground you see filo bites which I will delve into in future posts.

 

weddings

Weddings are always wonderful, time consuming, expensive and hectic. We do so much preparation for a wedding. The food, the favors, the invitations and the clean up.

I will share with you one of the most wonderful favors that I have come across. When I first saw these flutes I thought what a great idea and then I saw the price. I could create the same thing for half the price of the flutes that I saw in that store. So I did. When my daughter got married we talked about the things that she had hoped to have at the wedding. Truth is I think I wanted the wedding more than she did. She allowed me to organize everything from the food to the favors.

I’ll talk about creating your own wonderful event later. Today I want to tell you about this great champagne flute.

She wanted a blue and White wedding and that’s exactly what she got. There were three hundred people at the wedding and the reception hall looked like a flower garden with all of the flutes sitting at the place settings. I also painted clear glass plates in the reverse method for the dinner.

The idea was that the guests would take the champagne flute home with them for their wedding favor. I have to admit about fifty of the plates disappeared as well. Oh well.

Anyway, I produced these flutes for 6.00 each unit. I’m letting you know because I am ready to sell these flutes for the same amount plus the shipping and handling.

So, if you want something totally unique for your wedding, just give me a shout, I’d be happy to help!
