Subtly suggestive of Spring, botanical food styling for a cocktail celebration offers a beautiful extension of theme, free from the complexity of styling an entire sit down dinner. Whether your event unfolds in the lush surrounds of a garden itself, or you simply wish to draw the outside in, floral menu inclusions, perfumed flavour profiles and imaginative plating all create a sense of natural enticement.
Setting the mood from the moment guests arrive, serve delicate champagne cocktails, garnished with slivers of fruit, petals or edible blooms. For canapés, think bite sized morsels that look as if plucked from nature themselves. Dressed in dustings of micro herbs or nested between leaves, pair with organic surfaces such as slate or wood for an organic mood.
For dessert, look to the elegance of macarons, miniature cakes or individual pavlovas suffused with strawberries, rosewater or violets. If arranging self serve stations throughout your venue (particularly perfect for cheeses or desserts) have your florist create a spectacular floral backdrop of oversized proportions, beautifully framing the food below.
