Without a doubt, two of the biggest components to planning an event include food and decor.
These elements often go hand in hand because having consistent branding or a theme keeps guests interested and excited to see what else the event has in store for them. With a creative touch, food can even act as the event decor itself. Edible centerpieces or even a wall of food can catch the eye, and make the guests hungry for more.
Using food as decorations is visually appealing, budget friendly, and unique that is sure to blow your attendees away:
Centerpieces are attention-grabbers; they are the focus of the table, so if you’re looking to bring a wow factor with your event decor, try making your centerpieces out of food.

Give your guests with a sweet tooth a favor, and use chocolate coated marshmallows with different food colorings and designs. The colored chocolate allows you to own your brand, and give your guests a whimsical feeling.
Another, all-in, option is making the centerpieces a place for hors d’oeuvres. These wooden cutting boards, and elaborate spread of cheeses, meats, and citrus fruits will keep your guests entertained, and increases their appetite.
EDIBLE DECORATIONS: These take the Cake–
We can’t forget about cake- one of the biggest edible decorations of all if your event calls for one. We love cakes because of the creative edge a client can put into it. From a company anniversary, to a congratulations and promotion party, they cover all boundaries. At our event for Nestle Waters North America, our mission was to WOW our client and guests with all things Perrier. Our caterer crafted edible sugar Perrier bottles that were placed on the cake and it was the most attention grabbing decoration of the event (until it was devoured).
A Wall of Food? Why not!
Having a wall full of delicious food could keep guests entertained liked a bar would. Placing salads on one wall, and dessert on another could give the room a pop of color, and a sweet scent. What’s better than food with a view?
There are lots of ways to creatively incorporate food into your event decor, whether you have a theme or not. This popular trend is making headlines in the industry, and event attendees will definitely be seeing a lot more of decorations crafted out of food in the future.
