London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 14, 2009 -- In the last few weeks before Christmas, party season is in full swing. And of course it is the job of the UKâs top catering and event companies to make Christmas 2009 the most gorgeous yet.
At "rhubarb" food design, the ethos is very much 'let the food speak for itself', but whatever the chosen menu it has to look and feel celebratory.
Colour is crucial to our Christmas party food this season â rich red and green vegetables, superb silver serving vessels, gold flecked linens, and candy striped cupcakes and carousels. Gold and silver leaf is used to fabulous effect on desserts, garnishes and place settings (and it couldnât be easier to use yourself either, just make a simple sugar and egg wash and apply the leaf with a pair of tweezers â instant decadence!).
Fresh deliveries of seasonal foliage are being made each day to our warehouses. Huge swags and swathes of evergreen, countless flickering candles, and bright coloured berries or beribboned mistletoe look and smell fantastic in any venue. And don't think the colour scheme has to be restricted to traditional reds and greens either. Colour co-ordinating your Christmas table or venue is relatively easy and so much fun â how about white and hot pink, or black and purple?
Variety is crucial so our party catering [http://www.rhubarb.net/Private-Parties/Birthdays-by-Rhubarb/1/57/125] strive to add colour & life to Christmas party table â varying sizes, shapes, presentation and texture makes the food function as decoration itself. Think how much more fabulous a towering stand of multiple mini desserts looks than one large dessert. Imagine mini mince pies and perfect fresh baked pastries dusted with fabulous edible glitter (at only Â£3 a pot its easy to use yourself at home too); or light as a feather cupcakes with different coloured icing; or cruditÃ©s with different jewel coloured dips. All make real visual talking points and create a proper party feel for your guests.
And finally we try never to forget a present or two â your guests will love tiny gift-wrapped canapÃ©s, or individual Christmas petit four favours, or bespoke designed Christmas crackers. After all, who doesnât love opening presents at Christmas? UK Catering enhances your party.
