My staff and I recently attended a delightfully decadent event hosted by the Triangle Chapter of the National Association of Catering Executives (NACE). The theme of the benefit event was “An Alice Affair” and the evening’s planners went all out to make us feel we’d just slipped down the rabbit hole! From a multi-colored lighting scheme and wild floral arrangements to tables piled with mismatched china and elaborate, baroque serving pieces, the scene completely captured the larger-than-life exuberance and whimsy of Alice’s Wonderland.
Brides looking to inject a touch of that same fun-loving attitude into their own affair can take cues from this food-themed inspiration board (after all, it was a caterers’ event!). Brightly hued tablecloths, over-the-top silver décor, candy-colored small bites, and jewel toned cocktails invite guests to “Eat Me,” “Drink Me,” and Be Merry!
