Setting the Perfect Table

By | Event Tips and Planning, How To, Parties, Top 5 Tips | No Comments

By Kaleb Crafts

Whether you are planning a corporate function, your big wedding day or just entertaining your closest friends for an intimate dinner party, the table setting sets the tone for the event more than almost anything else. Here are a few tips to help you think through this important piece to your event.

The Linen

The right tablecloth or linen is the first thing down on the table. A clean, crisp, white, linen that hangs just to the floor can be a great fit for any event, but get creative. Bring some colors in, use some unique patterns or fabrics. Don’t hesitate to get out the sewing machine and quickly hem or surge an edge on your favorite fabric. Add a pop of color with a runner or additional cloth overlay. Be mindful of textures and how they go together.

The Centerpiece

Get creative with your arrangements. Fresh florals can be used in almost any situation and tailored to fit the feel of the party. However, don’t be tied down to florals alone, add in votive candles, tiles, mirrors, beads, etc. For themed parties, use anything from sports caps to wood boxes to tiki torches. One thing to keep in mind is that while a tall and wide centerpiece will certainly be breathtaking at first glance, it can detract from table conversation once guests are seated. If it blocks the view of guests who are opposite one another, it can be bothersome.  

The Serviceware

Pick a china pattern that fits the event. If you have space and budget, add a charger or service plate to the place setting. The flatware should look cohesive with the china and be set according to common etiquette. An entire book could be written about place setting etiquette, so I won’t go into too much detail. But keep the flatware half an inch from the edge of the table and work outside in, meaning that the flatware should be placed in the order it will be used throughout dinner service working from the outside towards the plate. I love this picture from rootedinfoods.com that shows a traditional formal setting. In most circumstances, you won’t have all of these pieces set and you won’t set more than 3 pieces of flatware to left and right of the plate at a time, but this shows where the appropriate location for pretty much anything you could think of would go.  

The Accouterments

It is always helpful to think through the evening and plan the additional needs on the table accordingly. Salt and pepper shakers, water pitchers, place cards, table numbers, etc. Keep in mind that the additional items placed on the table may clutter the clutter and detract from the rest of the table.  

I hope these quick tips help you at your next big event and remember, life is too short to eat bad food.

This warmer weather has the team here at Culinary Crafts jones-ing for summer!  So, with that vibe in mind, today we have a STUNNING Red Cliff Ranch wedding to share with you.  This romantically rustic wedding was full of beautiful touches – and we aren’t surprised because it was expertly planned and designed by one of our favorite vendor partners, FUSE Weddings & Events!  Add in pretty photos from Alixann Loosle Photography  and you have a winning combo!  Check it out!

CC_Laura&Charley

What a pretty bridal party!  Aren’t those bridesmaid dresses gorgeous?!

CC_Laura&Charley2

And, talk about beauty!  How about this lace detail on the bride’s gown??  Plus, didn’t Artisan Bloom create a picture perfect bouquet?  LOVE!

CC_Laura&Charley3

One of our favorite parts of Red Cliff Ranch is this meadow with the red cliffs (for which is was named) that tower behind the ceremony site.  Such a breathtaking backdrop!

CC_Laura&Charley4

Of course, on this warm summer day, we made sure the guests had a great place to hang out during cocktail hour.  We served beverages and hors d’oeuvres that kept the guests mingling and happy until dinner was served.

CC_Laura&Charley5

Pulled Pork Sliders and  Prociutto Wrapped Utah Peaches were just a couple of the delicious bites our awesome team butler passed to guests!  So yummy!

CC_Laura&Charley6

We also created this AMAZING cheese board with local honey comb!  Such a hit!

CC_Laura&Charley7

Isn’t this reception space BEAUTIFUL?!  FUSE Weddings & Events never disappoints!  And those florals by Artisan Bloom?  Gorgeous!

CC_Laura&Charley8

A simple, yet elegant, place setting was the perfect addition to this romantic table.  Plus, we love the added touch of Karli Noel‘s handdrawn calligraphy that let guests know where their seat was!

CC_Laura&Charley9

CC_Laura&Charley10

The couple chose to serve the dinner ‘family-style’ which, as you know, Culinary Crafts loves!  We started with Artisan Breads like Black Peppercorn Cheddar, Beer Bread, and Corn Muffins with Utah Sea Salt Crusted Creamery Butters.  We also served Roasted Beet Salad with Snuck Farms Fresh Greens, Goat Cheese, Utah Pistachios & Citrus Honey Vinaigrette; Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Olive Oil, Cracked Pepper, and Sea Salt; Mesquite-Grilled Utah Red Trout with Tomato, Basil and Ricotta Risotto; Chicken Paillard with Napa Salad, Daikon, Mango and Mint; and finally Grilled Skirt Steak Cumin-Coriander Mushrooms, and Parsley Sauce.  SOOO good!

CC_Laura&Charley11

CC_Laura&Charley12

To follow up that AMAZING dinner, of course we had to create a decadent dessert bar – just like this one!

CC_Laura&Charley13

Chocolate Pot de Creme with Vanilla Whipped Cream and Mason Jar Berry Cobblers with Fresh Whipped Cream?  Yes, please!

CC_Laura&Charley14

Plus, House Made Gelato?  You bet!

CC_Laura&Charley15

We also made some ‘late-night’ snacks like these Mini Grilled Cheese Bites!  The guests LOVED them!

CC_Laura&Charley16

And, you can’t have a ranch wedding without an AMAZING s’mores bar, just like this one!  The guests always have so much fun making these treats by the fire!

This was SUCH a fun wedding and we are so grateful to all of the amazing vendors who made this day such a gorgeous one!  I hope this inspires you to plan some dreamy ranch weddings, everyone!  Happy planning!

The Craft(s) Launch Party!

By | Corporate Events, Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Every Day Life at Culinary Crafts, Food, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Parties, The Craft(s), The Tasting Room | No Comments

Today, I have a really special blog that is close to the Culinary Crafts team’s hearts – our launch party for the new series, The Craft(s)!  It debuted recently (hopefully, you all saw it!) and, in true Culinary Crafts fashion, we had a FANTASTIC launch party to get y’all excited for this amazing series!  For all of those who couldn’t join us, we are sad you couldn’t party with us, and for those who were able to join us, thank you and we hope this reminds you of this fun night!  Check it out!

CC_LaunchParty

Of course, we hosted the event at our downtown venue, The Tasting Room!  Such a perfect fit and we loved the decor!  We decided to go with a modern, industrial feel – and aren’t these tables cool?  Love it!

CC_LaunchParty2

We decided to create action stations that represented each episode in the series.  For each station, we created a dish as well as a cocktail that perfectly represented the theme and this station “Smoke” was so much fun!  The Smoked Maple Bourbon Sour Cocktail was AMAZING!  The creation of the drink was a pretty awesome show too!

CC_LaunchParty3

We got to really pull out the creative guns on this one.  The Smoked Short Rib with a Smoked Demi Glace was put in a smoking chamber to infuse the meat with even more smoky goodness.  After it was properly infused, we placed it atop our Purple Potato Puree to finish the dish!  YUM!

CC_LaunchParty4

Next up?  Our “Fire” station!  Of course, we brought some flame to this station!  Our Fireside Signature Cocktail was set aflame and our guests loved it!

CC_LaunchParty5

Next we served Flambed Ramen with our Killer Broth with Chef-Torched Beef, Fire Grilled Peppers, and a Sesame Chili Sauce.  Perfect!

CC_LaunchParty6

This is our Flaming Pumpkin Meringue Pie – which was SO delicious.  And our “Fashion” station served Housemade Ricotta and Squash Ravioli.  Such a decadently elegant dish!

CC_LaunchParty7

Of course, while you are perusing the stations (because there are more to come – you better believe it), we had butler passed hors-d’oeuvres!  These Mini Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Pomegranate Arils and the Crostini with Goat Cheese and Poached Pear Compote were so good!

CC_LaunchParty9

Of course, we had to pay our homage to apples!  Utah boasts some of the best local apples ANYWHERE and we try to use them anyway we can!  The “Apple” station included Crispy Pork Belly with Whipped Cider Ricotta and Sous-Vide Cooked Apple Relish PLUS an apple dessert trio!  The Apple Pie on a Stick, Poached Apples with Mascarpone, and Apple Sorbet with a Dried Apple Chip were all divine!

CC_LaunchParty10

BUTTER, need I say more?  This station included Butter Poached Scallops with a Brussel Sprout Slaw and Citrus Beurre Blanc as well as a bread station (mmm, carbs) with an assortment of house-made breads and house made compound butters and garnishes.  I’ll admit, I tried EVERY SINGLE OPTION.  No regrets.

CC_LaunchParty8

Last, but certainly not least, we include a station that gave a nod to one of our signature offerings, our House Made gelato!  The “Gelato” station included an Olive Oil Gelato with Balsamic Poached Pears Garnished with Sea Salt, Red Wine Gelato with Chocolate Shortbread, and Salted Caramel Gelato which we used in either a Porter Float OR a Root Beer Float!  Plus, to balance all of the sweetness this station has to offer, we brought in our Coffee Nerd Coffee Bar with cold brew and french press coffees!  Such a delicious treat and our guests LOVED the interesting flavors!

CC_LaunchParty11

We are SO excited for our new series – and if you haven’t watched the first episode, we hope you check it out!  (You can see it here.)  We are so thankful to each and every one of you who has helped us get to this AMAZING place in our business!  We are so happy to be able to bring you this new venture and also keep creating new and inventive culinary trends!  Happy viewing, everyone!

REPOST: A Modern Asian-Themed Wedding at The Leonardo Museum

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Parties, Vendor Love!, Wedding Trends | No Comments

REPOST FROM SALT LAKE PARK CITY BRIDE AND GROOM BLOG:

We revisit this colorful and contemporary celebration featured in the pages of our magazine.

In celebration of Chinese New Year this weekend, we’re #FBF-ing to Candice Yee & Eric Bender’s Real Utah Wedding featured in our Summer/Fall 2013 issue.

The “Modern Shanghai” and “Upscale Chinatown” themed wedding at The Leonardo Museum in downtown Salt Lake City—planned and designed by FUSE Weddings & Events—was inspired by the couple’s love of travel and Asian street food. Culinary Crafts recreated some of the duo’s favorite eats for the cocktail hour, including skewered shrimp satay, pork pot stickers, and Thai-style fish cakes served with chopsticks in take-out containers lined with Chinese newspaper. The morning of the big day the couple held a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, a nod to the bride’s family’s heritage. During the reception, Yee swapped her Vera Wang gown for a traditional red Chinese dress. The couple later departed among a sea of sparklers and glowing Chinese Kongming paper lanterns.

Read the couple’s love story + wedding details here, and see more photos of their festivities here!

Our “Alt” Cake for Utah Valley Bride!

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Every Day Life at Culinary Crafts, Featured: Culinary Crafts in the Press, Food, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, News, Parties, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, Tips, Vendor Love!, Wedding Trends | No Comments

So, working at Culinary Crafts is pretty awesome.  Not only do you get to work with some of the best people around (our in house staff as well as the local vendors), but we get to be a part of some pretty creative and amazing things.  Case in point:  The “Alt Cakes” feature in the newly debuted Utah Valley Bride magazine!  Check it out!

UVB_AltCakesFeature2017

This feature was SO fun because they showcased 5 different alternative cakes by 5 different culinary artisans, but it didn’t just end there!  They used each spectacular cake to inspire a theme for it’s own vignette – all photographed beautifully by Elisha Braithwaite Photography!

UVB_AltCakesFeature20172

Our Cheese Wheel cake was pretty AMAZING (if we do say so ourselves) and the ‘Modern Italian’ theme was certainly right up our alley!  With a fantastic vendor team to put the visions together, well, we were just blown away!

UVB_AltCakesFeature20173

Between the coordination skills of Utah Valley Bride, the design & styling talent of Sage and Thistle Events and the amazing florist, The Potted Pansy, didn’t this turn out just BEAUTIFULLY?!  Our cake fit perfectly, don’t you think?

UVB_AltCakesFeature20174

Not only did the vignette include a gorgeous tablescape, but there was a perfectly matched paper suite too!  This modern and elegant design by Robert and Stella was so pretty!  Love it!

UVB_AltCakesFeature20175

We LOVED being a part of this shoot!  It was so much fun and we are all for dreaming up creative new trends for our brides!  If you haven’t already, pick up your copy of Utah Valley Bride, on newsstands now!  Happy dreaming, everyone!

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Every Day Life at Culinary Crafts, Food, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Parties, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, Tips, Vendor Love!, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

As promised, today, we are bringing you the food from this AMAZING wedding we showed you last week!  Check it out, and again, thank you for the amazing photos Logan Walker Photography!

rossiconeweddingfood2

I couldn’t resist starting off this post with another photo of this GORGEOUS tablescape!  Love the rentals from Diamond Rentals, florals from Decoration Inc, and planning from Soiree Productions!  Plus, our delicious house-made breads and artisan butters were a welcome addition to the tables, don’t you think?

rossiconeweddingfood5

To start things off, of course we had passed hors d’oeuvres!  We greeted guests with this Balsamic Glazed Elk Carpaccio that was paired with a mini taste of local Wasatch Brewery‘s Polygamy Porter that complimented the bite perfectly.  We love it when we can do fun pairings like this!

rossiconeweddingfood6

We didn’t stop there!  We also served BLT Stuffed Heirloom Grape Tomatoes, Butternut Squash Lollipops garnished with Pistachios, Lemon Avocado Shrimp Crostini, and Roasted Pheasant with Plum Jam on top of a Granny Smith Apple.  YUM!  Plus, we served amazing slow drip coffee to the guests, which they loved, because they got to see the process of getting the perfect cup!

rossiconeweddingfood3

Of course, the bar was decked out beautifully too!  Not only did we have fun creating the perfect food menu, but we made sure the signature cocktails were up to par too!

rossiconeweddingfood4

Local distillery High West was the choice of spirits to inspire our Signature Cocktail menu!  The couple really wanted to focus on the local Utah food and beverage and we are so lucky to have such a great selection of local vendors.  High West cocktails are always top notch!

rossiconeweddingfood7

The couple chose to serve a plated 4 course menu to their guests that featured local ingredients and sustainable foods.  We were happy to oblige!  First, we served a Locally Grown Spinach and Romaine Salad garnished with Local Pears, Gorgonzola, Candied Almonds, and Dried Cranberries with a Caramelized Onion Balsamic.  Pretty and delicious!

rossiconeweddingfood8

Next, we served Mesquite-Grilled Rocky Mountain Red Trout with Granny Smith Apple Chutney on a bed of Seared Cauliflower, Brussels Sprouts, Tomato Lentils, with Parsley Oil and Micro Greens.  We had to show this dish 2 ways so you could see all of the amazing-ness happening on this plate!

rossiconeweddingfood9

Next, we served an entree of Grass Fed, Locally Raised Beef Tenderloin, Locally Grown Corn Cilantro Risotto, Julienne Vegetables, garnished with Yucca Chips.  And, last but not least, guests were treated to a dessert of Poached Local Pears, Toasted Masala Almond Streusel, and Amaretto Zabaglione.  Such a wonderful meal!!!

rossiconeweddingfood10

As if that meal wouldn’t leave you happy and satiated, we also created a fun dessert display for the guests as they danced the night away.  LOVE!

rossiconeweddingfood11

How cute are these Mini German Chocolate Cakes and Mini Pies Garnished with Edible Flowers?!

rossiconeweddingfood12

French Macarons and Chocolate Pot du Creme rounded out the deliciousness on the dessert display.  We LOVED bringing in the natural vibe with edible flowers on the Macarons too!

rossiconeweddingfood13

Another shot of this fun dessert display!  And how pretty are these linens mixed with our pretty wooden serving boards?  And the mercury glass lanterns were AMAZING!

rossiconeweddingfood14Last, but not least, the couple hosted an “after party” for the guests who wanted to keep the party going – and you need fuel to keep dancing the night away, right?  So the couple gave out favors of our House Made Bacon Bourbon Popcorn, as well as an Late Night Bites Bar with Mini Pepperoni Pizzas, Sliders & Fries, and S’mores Cones!  YUM!

We simply LOVED this wedding and had so much fun coming up with this creative and delicious menu!  I hope this inspires you all to get creative with you wedding food too!  Happy planning, everyone!

We catered a Surprise Pop-up wedding at The Tasting Room!

By | Parties, The Tasting Room, Vendor Love!, Vendor Spotlight, Wedding Trends | No Comments

The bride and groom, Angie and Scott, wanted to create a spontaneous and carefree wedding experience for themselves and their friends and family. Boy, did they succeed!

They told their guests they were invited to a dinner to share great food and great times with friends and family. When the guests arrived, to their astonishment, they found out it was actually a wedding…Angie and Scott were to married then and there! We give special thanks to their wedding photographer, Steve Speckman, for sharing his beautiful photos with us.

To create a calm and natural ambiance the chairs were decorated with sage branches and soft white ribbon.

Having pulled off their first “caper” as husband and wife, the bride and groom shared a congratulatory kiss in the gallery.

After the ceremony guests were seated at tables adorned with succulents in rustic wood boxes and gold mercury glass votives echoing the natural ambiance of the patio.

A Rustic, Romantic Wedding: The Details

By | Culinary Crafts Events, Event Tips and Planning, Every Day Life at Culinary Crafts, Food, Modern Wedding Style, Hot Tips for Cool Brides, Parties, Sharing the Love -Vendor and Client Relationships, Vendor Love!, Venues We Love, Wedding Trends | No Comments

Today I have a STUNNING wedding to show you that was over the top beautiful, full of AMAZING food, and the cutest couple ever!  Check it out – and thank you to Logan Walker Photography for the awesome photos!

rossiconewedding

How pretty is this gown?  And the ceremony florals by Decoration Inc – seriously AMAZING!

rossiconewedding9

To keep with the rustic romantic vibe, these long dark wood tables covered with white lace overlays were a perfect choice.  Paired with the mixed metal flatware, it definitely added a special pop of visual interest to the table settings.  The planning team at Soiree Productions ALWAYS creates the most beautiful events.  And the cake by Carrie’s Cakes was gorgeous!  Love the simple elegance of the organic grapevine accent and cut wood cake base was so PERFECT!

rossiconewedding6

I couldn’t resist sharing this photo!  🙂  Making sure your guests have bathroom options at some of our more rustic ranch venues is a MUST, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it look so much prettier than a boring white box that you try to hide.  We LOVE the wooden star decorations and Decoration Inc was so smart to dress up the commode with simple boughs of greenery.  Love it!

rossiconewedding2

Doesn’t this wedding party look just stunning?!

rossiconewedding3

The private residences at Wolf Creek are full of such great venue options!  This particular residence was awesome and was a great escape away from the city for the wedding guests that was simply chock full of natural beauty!

rossiconewedding8

This space was amazing!  We loved the mixture of Diamond Rentals‘s chairs and tables to create an eclectic and inviting space.  And, as usual, Decoration Inc hit it out of the ballpark with the florals and Soiree Productions‘s planning and design was stellar!  Such a stunning set up!

rossiconewedding4

How about this for cocktail hour entertainment?  This jet’s high flying skills definitely kicked off this celebration right!

rossiconewedding5

rossiconewedding11

A simple addition of a billy button flower with these soft grey napkins were a great pairing with these gorgeous, and fun, menus from Ann Elizabeth!

rossiconewedding10

More pretty spaces from the reception space!  We loved the little lounge spaces that were created throughout the space so that guests could mingle through the night.

rossiconewedding7

I just had to to show you another close up of the flower and tablescape for you, because, I mean, why not?!  It’s so pretty!

rossiconewedding12

The clear tent from Diamond Rental was a perfect choice for this reception!  The guests still felt like they were in the beautiful surroundings and at night, you could see the stars.  Such a great idea for outdoor weddings!

rossiconewedding14

rossiconewedding13

The guests partied away the night and danced under the stars, such a perfect end to this great night!  We loved this wedding, it was such a beautiful event and the vendor team was AH-MAZING!  Stay tuned for Part 2 of this event, though, where we show you all of the delicious FOOD!  You’re going to want to check back, I promise.  Happy planning, everyone!
