It’s all in the Family (style)


Considering serving your wedding reception Family Style? It’s one of my favorite options because it affords hosts the luxury of treating their guests to an abundance of options.  It’s intimate and elegant at the same time. Below, examples by the in-house caterer at Mayflower Grace Inn and Spa, Washington CT.

I often serve just the side dishes family style, and have the caterer plate the main to each guest. Below, at a wedding I planned in Bridgehampton, custom designed reclaimed wood and mirrored risers turn family style comfort food (by Creative Edge Parties) into the focal point of the evening.  Short ribs and fried chicken were plated and served to each guest, combining styles of service for an elegant, interactive meal.
