KaraKara Lavish Grazing is a Perth-based catering company that specialises in organic and picturesque grazing tables.
The creative behind the brand, Kara Bizzaca, has shared her top five tips for creating your own stunning grazing table for your next gathering.
Tip 1: KEEP IT FRESH
Sourcing local, fresh produce is key! Make friends with your local farmer’s market. Their passion for fresh and seasonal produce will give your board an authentic edge.
Tip 2: KNOW YOUR THEME
Choose a theme and stick with it. Whether you go for rustic, boho, art deco or modern contemporary, be clear with your direction and choose blooms, foliage, lighting and props to complement this style.
Tip 3: ADD COLOUR
Remember we eat with our eyes, so using a variety of colours is essential in creating a visual masterpiece. Select produce in different colours and intersperse with greenery and fresh florals to add texture.
Tip 4: USE VARYING HEIGHTS
Add interest to your board by using different heights. Place produce both on and around props such as wooden boxes or metal baskets, depending on your theme. This helps grazers easily access all areas of your board, as well as showcasing your curated cuisine.
Tip 5: INVITE EVERYONE TO DIG IN
Now for the most important part: pour a glass of wine, serve yourself some cheese, sit back and enjoy your creation with your nearest and dearest.
