Beautiful Trays & Platters – Inspiration

Screen Shot 2015-02-08 at 10.28.32 PM

Next month, I’ll be hosting an after-hours makeup clinic at work and, in thinking about the event, I thought it would be lovely to have a cocktail social to kick off the evening.

I’m thinking in terms of a menu, I want everything to be very easy to grab and eat while walking around and socializing. This make crudité and cheese platters, along with other snack-worthy favourites like olives, dried fruit, nuts, and antipasto, sure winners. To pair, I am going to serve wine (red and white), as well as a signature cocktail for the evening.

Below (and above) are screenshots of beautifully presented and thoughtfully curated platters that I thought would fit well with the atmosphere I’m aiming for.

Any particular favourites from the above? Any suggestions? What types of foods do you enjoy at social events?
