As featured on B.LOVED
At the start of January I was so excited to have my grazing table featured on B.LOVED, as part of this fabulous styled shoot! Captured by And Your Story and designed by Your Wedding Your Way, the concept was a picnic inspired editorial focusing on wining and dining (right up my street!). The end result was gorgeous, and made me long for warm spring days and afternoons filled with friends and champagne! The Curated Kitchen was asked to curate a delectable spread for the oh-so-pretty wedding grazing table and provide crystal cut glassware.
The menu for our decadent grazing table included speciality cheeses, cured meats and smoked salmon, artisan breads and crackers, and delectable homemade accompaniments like beetroot and horseradish relish, smoked houmous, and pomegranate dip. Yum! Alongside these enticing morsels were seasonal fruits and vegetables like figs, watermelon slices, pomegranates, grapes, asparagus, olives and tomatoes, as well as nuts, seeds, and edible flowers. One of my favourite elements was a tower of brie, topped with golden combs of local Kentish honey. For those with a sweet tooth, there were also dipped pretzels and chunks of homemade honeycomb.
As delicious as everything was, it’s important to remember that we eat with our eyes first. That’s why presentation is so important, and in this case, the presentation was a delight! The treats were laid out on a beautiful vintage dresser with spring flowers overflowing from the drawers. There was also a lovely wooden calligraphy menu board, which is such a nice touch to let your guests know what they have to choose from. This grazing table shows that you don’t have to sacrifice on style if you choose this alternative option for your wedding catering.
Alongside the grazing table, the team also styled a picnic table in the gardens and a vintagey drinks station using our glassware to serve the Moet & Chandon champagne, the perfect accompaniment to the grazing table goodies. Thanks to the rest of the team for including us in this collaboration, and to BLOVED for the feature!
