1. Long Tables + Family Style Dining

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”2295″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center”][vc_single_image image=”2296″ img_size=”full” add_caption=”yes” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Long table setups with candles, hanging plants, organic floral displays and lush tablescapes will continue to thrive in 2019. This classic setup will often be accompanied by pillared candles and low florals, creating a full and lush look throughout, though more modern 2019 accents such as succulents, cactus, plants, interesting candles and creative lighting will make their way in as well, and we are totally here for it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Include some of your personal favorites or create a brand new drink in honor of your big day. We love adding in an unexpected garnish, playing with color, and of course adding in a pretty bar menu.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Now that more and more people are following health-conscious diets, along with those who have allergies, more food options is going to be a major trend this year. From vegan to gluten free, expect to see a lot more accommodations for those with dietary restrictions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

This is a fun way to feed your guests well while providing a variety of options (if opting for a food truck for dinner, we always suggest having more than one!) Food trucks are a way to offer yummy food to your guests at a fraction of the price of a full-service caterer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

We love a good industrial space with brick walls and greenery EVERYWHERE![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
