Tips for setting up your Wedding Grazing Table Food or Birthday Party Grazing Table Food

Colour – choose bold colours for your foods where you can, and find contrasting colours as well.  For example, green and red grapes, crackers in different colours (beetroot, charcoal, sweet potato, black sesame, seaweed, brown rice and original wafers and rice crackers), cheeses from all genres, and lay out some leafy greens.

Add textural waves and interest – choose our chunky Beetroot Relish, fan out your wafers in concertina style, clump some cashews and almonds in piles, throw in some dried apricots and figs – be creative.

Take a long line down the centre of the table, or fill the whole board to the brim.   Decide, also, whether to separate your foods by category or scatter them at random, bearing in mind that some of your guests will have food allergy issues to contend with.  Some foods will be runnier than others and would be best contained in a small bowl (i.e. Roasted Capsicum & Chilli Relish and any dips).

Chop up your fruits and vegies – cut carrot and celery sticks, wedge your kiwifruit, slice your oranges, cube your cantelope and honeydew melon.  Leave your strawberries, snowpeas, cherry tomatoes and raspberries whole.

Arrange your cold meats – arrange shaved ham, separate your salami slices, and create curls with your sliced rare beef.

Elevate some food on cake stands or raised wooden boards – this could also help in keeping some food types separated – e.g. meats on the board to assist keeping vegetarian offerings more isolated on the level below.  If you’re using chilli products, it’s also a good idea to keep them a little separated from mild foods… not everyone likes it hot!  See our Mad Dog Chilli Jams, Sauces and Salsa

Serve with bamboo tongs, spoons and knives – serving healthy help-yourself options to keep fingers away from food is always a good idea.  Spread some piles of folded serviettes, paper plates or china plates around the edges – and place a rubbish bin close by.

Select popular cheeses and serve in cubes, wedges, slices or whole – go for colour, some soft cheeses, some hard, etched with blue veins, or crumbly in texture.  Contrast your cheeses with bright and inviting natural colour Spicy Tomato Chutney and Beetroot Relish

Embellish with Scattered Pansy Flowers, Popcorn….. or even some Aussie gum leaves

Add some antipasto – but beware of oozing pickling juices, and (especially) oils and such that might spread from an olive inclusion.  Some flavours are quite strong and can overpower foods adjacent.

And finally,

Beware of foods that spoil or go brown if they are cut up or displayed too early (e.g. bananas, apples, pears).

Keep your crackers and wafer biscuits sealed in their packets until the last minute – they go soft if exposed to air after a while.

Avoid setting your Wedding Grazing Table Food or Birthday Grazing Table Food up in the sun, or exposed to wind or rain…
