Small Plates, Big Tastes

6:05 AM

One trend that I love for weddings and special events is pairing small plates with complementary drinks.  This is a great option for couples who want a relaxed, informal wedding reception because guests can carry the plates/drinks and mingle at the same time.

Truly the possibilities are limitless.  Below are a few examples and two very important tips.

1. Opposites Attract- Most Times
In most cases it's best to pair a cold entrée with a warm drink and a hot entrée with a cold drink.  Also it's important to offer both hot and cold entrees instead of just one kind.

2. Look Ma, No Meat
It's always a good idea to offer food that doesn't contain meat- not only for your vegetarian friends, but also to provide a somewhat healthier alternative to your other options.
