Graze Tables 101

If you have an Instagram account, then we’re sure you’ve seen (i.e.: gawked, saved, drooled) over the hottest new trend to hit the charcuterie scene—Graze Tables!

A Graze Table is a perfectly curated tablescape filled with artfully arranged meats, cheeses, spreads, crudité, seasonal fruits, flowers, and decorations. Think of it as an extensive charcuterie board, or a more relaxed option for you and your guests to mingle without the stress of preparing and cooking an entire meal.

 

Alongside being absolutely delicious, Graze Tables can serve as the backdrop for meaningful occasions, conversations, and laughs. You know how the saying goes, “Nothing brings people together like good food!” and after this past year, who isn’t excited to get together and catch up with the ones who mean the most?

 

 

 

Things to consider when booking a Graze Table:

Where? The set-up location is one of the most important and first things you should decide on. During the summer months of June-September, we require the set up to be inside. This Texas heat shows no mercy and grilled cheese is not on our menu! Pro tip: opt for areas with plenty of room to ensure your guests can graze from every side of the table.

When? Is this a brunch table or an evening get-together? The reason we ask is because we offer different spreads for different occasions. For example, our Brunch Graze Table can include anything from chicken and waffle skewers to bagel & lox to pastries and a mimosa bar. (Psst…wipe your mouth, you’re drooling)

Who? Who’s attending? Are children expected to be at your event? We have fun options that we can include, like “Kidcuterie”,  that comes with offerings such as colby jack, goldfish crackers, yogurt pretzels, veggie straws, and half-cut grapes and blueberries.

Are some of your guests more comfortable with an individual graze option? If so, we offer party flavor individual boxes, charcuterie cones, or wine glass graze that they can grab and go. 

What? In addition to cheeses, charcuterie, olives, cornichons, dips, spreads, fresh and dried fruits, nuts, honey, jams, fruit pastries, breads, crackers, and breadsticks, we can add on additional flavors such as our Sweets Board with custom treats for your guests! 

Plus, did you know that we can accommodate gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan requests? 

Why? Tell us your occasion, share the invite, or inspiration board and we can tastefully incorporate the theme into the tablescape décor. Our grazing tables are the perfect addition to add color, elegance and a touch of sophistication to any party. 

Are you opting for a more formal event? The style and configuration can include display elements such as candles, marble boards, wooden boards and service items that compliment your event theme. We provide basic greenery and florals with each graze, and professional floral arrangements can be added.
