The art of grazing (according to Wikipedia, “the repetitive eating of small or modest amounts of food in an unplanned manner throughout a period of time”) is by no means a novel style of eating. However, if we take a look at search trends, we can see this style of event catering concept gaining steam from 2017, before peaking in 2019, and still maintaining a huge level of popularity. Five years later, we’re still enjoying the beautiful colour and eclectic options grazing tables and platters bring us. Offering abundant as well as eye candy (no pun!), it’s no wonder they are still ever so popular. In celebration of that, here are some epic grazing table ideas for your next party that will get your mouth watering!

Grazes that run down the centre of a table
If you’re going for a grazing table that runs down the middle, you’ll need a pretty covering to create interest. These table runners from Lovely Occasions are nicer and thicker than brown paper. They’re 4 metres long – so perfect for a long table or bar. Best of all, they are recyclable!
TIP! Wooden spoons or knives are great alternatives to using labels! Write allergy, dietary restrictions or names of dips or cheeses on them with your favourite Sharpie or Posca. Unlike labels, they’ll never go missing! Grab some here from Lovely Occasions.
