If you’re a fan of this theme, then think of adding foods like tea sandwiches, stuffed mushrooms, oysters, roasted nuts, and baked ham. And, yes, champagne towers are a must to complete the look.
When we say rustic, we’re pointing out at homemade jams, breads, and slow cooked meats. Rustic-style weddings are totally in. Feel at home by opting for buffet tables, instead of round tables. And, serve the food family style!
