Tips for preparing the perfect platter for your spring party

With the weather warming up and the festive season fast approaching, there is no better time to perfect your platter skills and host a spring party.
Getting outdoors, eating delicious food and catching up with friends is the best way to take advantage of this gorgeous weather, so below we are sharing our best tips on how to prepare the perfect party spring platter for your next soiree…

Food

  • You have got to have cheese on a platter! Try to include a variety of textures and flavours – serve at least one familiar cheese; you can’t go wrong with a double brie.
  • Offer a selection of breads and crackers.
  • Jarred condiments and vegetables are quick and fuss free. Think celery, carrot sticks and dips.
  • Mix sweet and salty – cured meats procioutto and salami, dark chocolate, fruit and dried fruit, nuts
  • Separate strong smelling cheese, and be sure to use a different knife for each cheese
  • Spread everything out to avoid a gridlock between your friends going to cut a slice.
  • The French have a tradition of only serving an odd number of cheeses- why not join in?
  • Take the cheese out out the fridge five minutes before serving to soften.

Drinks

  • Mis-matched mason jars make great glasses
  • Include jugs of infused water for a non-alcoholic option
  • Light and sweet wines pair perfectly with the spring weather – Try a pink moscato!
  • Create your own signature cocktail with a spring twist

Styling

  • Flowers in jars or brown vases add colour and life to your setting
  • Layered rugs and scattered pillows make great floor seating, you can even include milk crates or wooden stools
  • Add a turkish towel or two for your guests to drape over themselves once the sun sets
  • Chunky wooden platters will make your food pop and will create different heights and layers on the table
