People can utilize many of the five senses to experience food or drink and determine if they like or dislike something.   I believe sight can initially be one of the most important senses, when it comes to food.  If you are looking at the same item on two different plates, and one is presented in an attractive fashion…and the other is plainly placed on the plate, which do you think you would gravitate towards?  It is human nature to lean towards the more attractive item, or an item that is displayed in a distinctive manner.  Food presentation should always be a consideration for all food items that will be served at your wedding reception.  Whether it is the appetizers and drinks, or the actual plated dinner or buffet dinner, presentation is always key.  Here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center, our talented and award-winning culinary team are always putting together new and innovative ways to present food.   One of the most versatile pieces of equipment that we use daily to present our food product is our granite top rolling carts.  The carts are extremely sleek and modern looking with the beautiful granite on top and wooden panel on the sides.  We can use the carts for buffets, to display appetizers, as a cake table, to display an ice sculpture, dessert display, or action stations.  Since our carts are very attractive, minimal decoration is needed and they are also easily moved so removing them from the room can be done very quietly, to ensure no disruption to your event occurs.  Pairing the striking granite carts with other items such abstract silver serving dishes, granite pieces and rod-iron holders to stack and add height and dimension completes the sophisticated look.  Utilizing glassware and stemware creatively is also a fashionable way to give an extra punch to any food item.  Single servings of desserts, or certain types of appetizers, can be displayed on spoons.  This clever way of displaying the food is beneficial because it offers an easy way for your guests to sample the item with minimal effort…..while also serving as appealing décor.  Stemmed glassware has also been a big hit for serving food at wedding receptions.   Desserts, appetizers, or even specialty drinks can be served out of a stemmed wine glass to quickly add some elegance.   Creativity with food presentation can take your wedding reception to the next level, so please contact me at the Sioux Falls Convention Center to discuss how we can make your event an epicurean affair!
