This is a fairly new concept to have grazing tables at your wedding, featuring a selection of antipasto, cheeses, fruit, cured meats, crackers, salads, dips and breads. The best way to create this mouth-watering grazing table, is to use items that are not only good on their own, but also work well together when paired. You could also have individual ingredients such as a selection of toasted bread, garlic, tomatoes, olive oil so guests could make their own Catalonian tomato bread or bruschetta. Why not offer guests a build your own crostini table. By adding marble slabs, glass and wood platters, porcelain bowls in various sizes to the table, this will truly catch your guests eyes.
