Sunday Suppers:: Martha Stewart Feature

Sunday Suppers was graciously asked to guest blog for Martha Stewart’s wedding blog : The Bride’s Guide with Darcy Miller. For our post we decided to create a dessert cheese table—very much in the French fashion—using a rustic chic look for décor, staying within the given color palate of cream and white. Cheese, in its blocks and wheels, is such a beautiful thing. We also love this because it is very attainable for every bride—DIY brides to high end wedding planner events can mold this idea to fit their budget. We sought out cheese that created visual variety for the display, and variety in taste for the serving. We also searched for pairings that really highlighted and complimented their cheese. Once our cheeses were selected (more on that later) we had a great time arranging a beautiful buffet table. We used delicate pairings like french baguette, honey, and pear, to add colors and shapes. We also enlisted the incredibly talented Maybelle Imasa-stukuls to create signage for our cheeses. These beautiful French names and gorgeous wheels deserved nothing but the best for their labeling.

* In the coming days we will walk you through the step by step process of choosing the cheeses and pairings for this table, along with a table setting and an individual cheese plate we designed for each guest. We're also offering design services such as favors and tablescapes for weddings and events. For more information or to signup for mailing list updates email: info@sunday-suppers.com

  20. I could quite easily work my way through that entire table, leisurely, decadent. Yum.

    Sure hope you tell us where to find those little metal bits, to use for labels...esp the ones you stick into the cheese itself. Can't find them anywhere!

    Really nice job.
