A Noteworthy Festive Trend: Grazing Tables

As Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, it is the perfect time to feature one of this year's hottest trends... grazing tables! A common sight I first noticed coming from Australia, these artful arrangements are made of crudites and charcuterie, This type of table is full of vibrant color and seasonal flavor.  Below are a few samples of how the arrangements might look. They are an awesome addition to any corporate event, wedding reception or holiday party... and certainly a way to wow your guests!


This grazing table was put together by Your Platter Matters, an Australian-based catering company for a beautiful summer wedding. Can you imagine guests leaving a ceremony to find this spectacular work filled with tasty tidbits available for them to peruse?!


This grazing table was the dreamy creation of KaraKara for a foodie styled shoot, shot by Bird on the Wall Photography and Home Thugs n Harmony as a part of a decadent soiree for a bride. The rustic vibe was formed on a pallet table, where an abundant charcuterie feast is spread between crystal glasses, antique silverware and black crockery – think juicy figs and grapes, creamy international cheeses, sweet cinnamon poached pears and fresh honeycomb.


This amazing grazing table was from an Australian wedding. It was pieced together with care by Jo from Garnish Creative Catering. This legendary feasting table was complete with a 12 hour smoked ham, fine cheeses and arancini balls.


I couldn't help but include this darling breakfast version of the grazing table. Not only is breakfast one of my favorite meals of the day, but then to be offered on a generous spread on the table is just too much! This spread was designed by Honestly Yum for Mother's Day. I wouldn't mind celebrating a bridal shower, baby shower or Mother's Day in this style!
