Modernistic Styling Guide from Pocketful of Dreams: Food & Drink



It’s Friday and that only means one thing: it’s time to talk about food!  Have you been following our Modernistic Styling Guide this week?  We’ve been having a ball pulling this one together and this morning we are going to show you that you don’t the styling opportunities can also extend into the food and drinks you serve.

Every wedding deserves delicious food so aim for modern fusion flavours or quirky twists on old classics.  Presentation is paramount here, canapes presented in transparent acrylic cones or signature cocktails in ice glasses are guaranteed to wow your guests.  Work with your caterer to ensure food is imaginatively served with a sense of theatre.  For example, does your starter include a small salad?  Instead of serving it on the plates, plant lettuce, basil and other greens into your centrepiece and invite your guests to cut to taste!

For your wedding cake, again look to interesting and bold shapes to provide a sculptural feel.  A classic tiered cake can be turned on its head by stacking the tiers in an asymmetric fashion (don’t try this yourself kids!) or with a typographic cake topper such as those made by Miss Sarah Cake.

We’ve loved pulling together this week’s Modernistic Styling Guide and we’d really like to know what you think.   Is this a wedding style that you would consider?  And do you like this more in-depth styling guide?  Please do leave us a comment as we would love your feedback on this one.

Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.
Brussels bound this morning to visit @valentineavoh to see my wedding dress 👏💗💍👰 #WeddingDressShopping #Bridal #Contemporary #Modern #Fashion
We're talking heavenly handwriting on the blog currently & lusting after this @urbanic hand-lettering card printed in copper foil on a moody grey stock. --- In an increasingly digital era, it’s refreshing to see talented designers perfecting this age-old tradition with a modern twist. Combining modern printing techniques with the elegance and class of this most stylistic art form.
Drink it all in: I try to live relatively healthy and know one of the very best things I can do for body and mind is to drink plenty of water. Bought myself a pretty jug to sit on my desk to remind me to drink more, I aim for 4-5 of these per day. It's a small goal but the difference is huge, less bloating, clear skin & a clarity of mind that's unbelievable. What are your health goals this year? Tag yourself in and share....
