Today’s Instagram of the Week is this FUN capture by @chellie_pete of the VIP Pre-Party for Provo Fashion Week!  We were SO thrilled to be a part of the ‘haute’ party, not only as the caterer, but we also hosted the fete at our Pleasant Grove facility as well – which doubles as a state of the art kitchen AND super swanky venue!   Thank you so much for sharing @chellie_pete and we are just as excited for Provo Fashion Week as you are!  Remember to add #culinarycrafts to your posts or tag us with @culinarycrafts for your chance to be next week’s Instagram of the week!  Happy stylin’, everyone!

A Bright & Bold Brunch Inspiration Shoot: THE FOOD!!!

As promised, today I am sharing our food that Culinary Crafts created for this GORGEOUS brunch inspiration shoot!  We really wanted to create something different (and delicious!) and decided that a small plates approach was the PERFECT fit!  This is totally a big trend right now and we love how small plates allow you to serve your guest a variety of dishes, without them feeling overstuffed and unable to try everything!  Plus, it just looks so PRETTY!  Check it out!

Aren’t these menus and the tablescape awesome?!  Thanks to the amazing styling by Attention 2 Detail Events, fabulous floral design by Flowers by Adrien, and the stunning paper suite by Pro Digital Photos! Not to mention the gorgeous photos by Kristina Curtis Photography!

Sigh.  Now THIS is a breathtaking table!

We created three small plates and as well as two beverages.  I mean, how excited would you be to get to be a guest at this table?  I know I would be thrilled!

Our first plate was our small plate approach to a breakfast favorite: Steak N’ Eggs!  This divine dish was a Cornbread Waffle, Locally Farmed Steak, Frizzled Leeks, drizzled with Chimichurri all topped with a Fried Quail Egg.  Yum!

Next we have a simply CUTE pancake platter!  This miniature Whole Wheat Nutmeg Pancake Stack was topped with a single blueberry and accompanied by a cube of Himalayan Pink Salted Butter and House-Made Cinnamon Cream Syrup and garnished with a Fresh Lime Wedge.  Cute and delectable!

I bet these two couldn’t wait for the shoot to be over so they could dig in to the delish eats! :)

Lastly, we have a sweet end to this fabulous meal!  Not only did we serve a sweet Raspberry Mocktail Shooter with Fresh Berries, but no meal is complete without dessert! These Mini Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Donuts with Milk & Pink Sugar Frosting were served with a cup of Amano Hot Chocolate, House Made Toasted Vanilla Marshmallow, and Garnished with Candied Orange Zest.  So good!

We had such a great time planning for this inspiration shoot and couldn’t be more thrilled with how it all came together!  We hope this inspires you to consider a small plates approach to your event – I guarantee it will please ANY guest!  Happy planning everyone!
