Fruits Fusions

For an extra dose of natural sweetness, we fully embraced the fruit-for-flavor and embellishment trend in 2018.

Mini Bite Delights 

While most everyone enjoys an ample buffet spread or lively seated dinner, bite-sized dishes to take around the dance floor or even to the after party help keep the energy flowing throughout the night! Whether sweet or savory, we saw tons of fantastic uses of these single-bite style dishes that guests were sure to have gone back for second rounds!

Garden-like Garnishes

When garden-grown enhancements make for both a beautiful AND delicious statement, we’re all in for a little earthy green addition! Fresh basil, mint and parsley took the cake (quite literally) this year, giving a new and tasty update to classic flavors and polished looks.
